How do you recognize an ill animal??  Watch for signs of changes in their behaviour (straining, hiding, lethargy, vocalization and aggression), appetite, drinking , urinating or weight loss.  Coughing, vomiting, sneezing or diarrhea are move obvious symptoms of an ill pet.  Please feel free to call should you have any concerns. 

Any bleeding pet, any pet having difficulty breathing, any animal in pain/distress, and pets that are straining when urinating/defecating, or cats having urinary accidents in the house, need immediate attention.  Note a cat that is not eating should also be considered a medical emergency. Cats can develop liver disease within 48 hours of not eating enough calories to meet their nutritional requirements.
