Why Would You Need Veterinary Emergency Care in Fullerton, CA?

We cannot plan for every eventuality, but we’re not going to leave our friends helpless when they need attention the most. When you need emergency veterinary care for your pet, you need a place that is convenient and a team that is equally skilled and compassionate.

Emergencies strike when you least expect them, but you can bring your pet to our state-of-the-art facility to get help from professionals who are constantly updating their knowledge to ensure they are ready to handle any emergencies you face.

What Is Considered a Veterinary Emergency?

Pets cannot communicate they are having an emergency, so you have to be very attentive to changes in their usual behavior that could indicate an emergency. Please pay close attention and reach out to our emergency veterinary hospital if you notice any of the following:

  • Seizures;
  • Swelling;
  • Difficulty breathing;
  • Choking;
  • Persisting bleeding;
  • Disorientation;
  • Appetite disorders;
  • Heatstroke;
  • Frostbite;
  • Food poisoning;
  • Indigestion;
  • Persistent vomiting;
  • Direct trauma from a blunt object;
  • Open wounds or lacerations;
  • Burns;
  • Eye injuries.

Animal Poisoning

There are some substances that are clearly toxic to our pets. Rat poison is one thing we would never give our pets for consumption and expect them to be alright; however, there are plenty of household items you may accidentally leave around that your pet could ingest.

Some basic cooking ingredients, such as garlic and onions, or even treats, such as chocolate, can be harmful or even fatal to our pets.

The longer you wait, the more severe the case becomes. You can bring your pet for emergencies that result in:

  • Gastrointestinal complications, which are noticeable due to vomiting or diarrhea;
  • Internal bleeding, identifiable by weakness or lethargy, collapsing, a racing heart, or vomiting blood;
  • Kidney failure, which you can identify due to abnormally frequent urination or a lack of appetite;
  • Liver failure, which commonly results in tarry stools, collapsing, and vomiting.

Open Wounds

Pets are usually much better at moving around spaces than their pet parents, but they are far too curious, which can lead to unwanted trouble pretty easily.

Bites, scrapes, deep cuts, and punctures can all put your pet’s health at risk, which is why it’s essential you regularly check your pet, especially if they seem to be fixated on licking a specific area of their body.

If you notice an open wound, hold your pet carefully to assess the level of pain and harm suffered before contacting your pet’s veterinarian in Anaheim. You could try to clean the wound and disinfect it, but we would highly suggest you get in contact with us for additional instructions.


These are definitely some of the most alarming veterinary emergencies there can be and are usually associated with neurological problems that require specialized help. Fortunately, one of the specialized veterinary services we offer for our Fullerton neighbors is animal neurology.

Please note the type of seizure to know what to do.

  • Focal Seizures: will only affect one region of your pet’s brain, and you can gauge your pet’s awareness level throughout the episode.
  • Generalized Seizures: are far more complicated, affecting the entirety of your dog’s brain.

Spotting seizures in animals can be a real challenge, but if you notice apparent changes to your pet’s vision or hearing, abnormally dilated pupils, problems with their balance, or involuntary muscle spasms, you should contact our emergency vet hospital for additional information.
