When You Do (and Don’t) Need to Take Your Pet to the Vet

Pet owners always worry when their pets get bitten or take a tumble from the stairs. A good number of ailments can be dealt with at home without making a visit to the vet.

Key takeaways:

  • If the pet is limping after a fall and putting weight on the affected limb, then that’s soft tissue injury that can be treated at home.
  • You can use tweezers to remove parasites such as ticks which should be placed in isopropyl alcohol and labeled with date removed.
  • Serious injuries due to animal fights, getting hit by a car and eating something suspicious require the attention of a vet ASAP.

Serious injuries are scary, but knowing the phone number and address of your local emergency veterinary clinic ahead of time can save you precious seconds, points out Dr. Cooper.
