If your cat or dog is experiencing excessive bleeding then you need to contact your emergency vet right away while monitoring the condition of your pet. Here, our emergency vets in Lacey explain the difference between internal and external heavy bleeding in cats and dogs as well as how to control the situation until you arrive at the emergency vet clinic.
Although it may not happen often, there are many reasons why your dog may suddenly be stumbling or falling over including injury or stroke. Our Lacey vets discuss why your dog is staggering like they are drunk and why you should bring them to the vet.
Our vets at Olympia Pet Emergency in Lacey have seen many cases of dehydration in dogs. When your dog's body loses more water and electrolytes than they are taking in, dehydration can occur. This can cause severe issues with their internal organs, body temperature, digestion and joints.
While they may look beautiful, many common house and garden plants are toxic to cats. If your furry best friend nibbles on a plant, being able to tell your veterinarian exactly what your cat has eaten will help your Lacey vet determine and administer appropriate treatment as quickly as possible.
