PET EMERGENCIES! Please Read BEFORE Posting

Dear Friends,

We are glad that you have come to MedHelp's Ask A Veterinarian forums to find out more about your pet’s health or behavior.  It is our goal to provide you with the highest level of accurate pet health information and guidance to help you understand more about keeping your pets safe, happy and healthy.

The veterinarians here at MedHelp cannot offer emergency help for your pets.   If your pet is experiencing any urgent medical condition, please DO NOT WAIT  for an answer at this forum.   Seek immediate help at your local veterinary office or emergency animal hospital.  Here are a few examples, but by no means a complete list of emergency situations for which you should seek immediate medical assistance for your pet:

• SEIZURES
• FAINTING
• UNABLE TO WALK
• PALE GUMS OR LETHARGY
• SUDDEN COLLAPSE WEAKNESS OR LOSS OF COORDINATION
• EXCESSIVE HEAT OR COLD EXPOSURE
• INGESTION OF ANY POISON OR UNKNOWN TOXIN
• NOT EATING OR DRINKING FOR LONGER THAN TWO DAYS
• HIT BY A CAR OR ANY OTHER MAJOR BODILY INJURY
• UNCONTROLLABLE VOMITING OR DIARRHEA OR DEHYDRATION
• INFECTED WOUNDS
• ABNORMAL BLEEDING
• DIFFICULTY BREATHING
• DIFFICULTY BIRTHING
• EQUINE COLIC
• URINARY BLOCKAGE or DIFFICULTY URINATING
• VENOMOUS BITES

We know that medical terminology can be confusing and even intimidating.  You might even feel as if medical events with your pet are spiraling out of your control.  We want to help you understand the facts about your pet’s health, and help separate truth from fiction about pet care.  Our guidance can often save you time, money and heartache plus improve the communication with your local veterinarian.

There is a lot of bad information on the Internet.  But, you can trust the veterinarians here at MedHelp.  Each of them is a highly trained and experienced practitioner and they are committed to providing pet owners with trustworthy, practical and common sense advice.  

In the Ask the Expert forums, more than one veterinarian might contribute to answering your question.  Like “rounds” at the local hospital, we have found that this group effort often leads to better decision making.
