Highland Animal Hospital Helps St. Paul Families with Emergency Pet Care Services

When local pet owners need urgent care for their dogs and cats, Highland Animal Hospital answers the call. Their skilled veterinarians provide emergency pet care in St. Paul for a variety of illnesses and injuries, including those requiring surgery.

Dogs, cats, and other pets are dependent on their owners when a health crisis occurs, which makes a stressful event even scarier. The team at Highland Animal Hospital has decades of experience to draw upon in these crises, so they offer the following advice for pet owners.

First, assess the situation. Things may be more serious than they seem—or vice versa. Pet health emergencies typically involve one of the following symptoms or conditions:

Swollen Abdomen

Difficulty Breathing or Extreme Cough/Choking

Eye Injury or Inflammation

Staggering, Stumbling, or Inability to Walk

Uncontrolled Bleeding

Repeated Vomiting


Dilated Pupils

Multiple Seizures or a Seizure Longer than 3 Minutes

Severe Injuries

Inability to Deliver Puppies or Kittens

Inability to Urinate or Defecate

Ingestion of Poisonous Foods or Foreign Objects

Sudden Blindness

Bloody Diarrhea

If any of these symptoms or conditions are present, owners should call immediately for emergency veterinary care services. On the way to the vet, they should also administer any possible first aid. For example, applying pressure to bleeding injuries until clotting begins or using the Heimlich maneuver as adapted for dogs. Highland Animal Hospitals recommends that people learn some basic first aid for their pets so that they will be more prepared during a crisis. Likewise, owners should familiarize themselves with their preferred vet’s emergency pet care practices so that they know what to expect in advance.
