Never hesitate to call an emergency veterinarian in Eugene if you have worries about your pet’s health and well being. Your concern for your pet is a sign of your care for them, and is not something to be embarrassed about. Your pet’s healthcare team will be supportive in times of need. Veterinarians are trained and prepared for pet emergencies.

Follow your instincts. You know your pet, and can be the best judge of what behavior is unusual. If something doesn’t feel right, you are probably sensing a problem. Seek help day or night if you are deeply concerned about your pet. By answering a few questions a veterinarian can determine the level of danger your pet is in, and recommend what steps to take. If all is well you have still done the right thing by making sure.
