Dog Emergency: When You Need the Vet

You just got home from work, and your dog is acting weird.  You’re not sure what’s going on, but he seems sick.  He’s cheerful, wags his tail, but just seems off.  You probably should call the vet, but it’s after hours and there’s an emergency fee.  You’re not sure if this is a dog emergency, or if your dog just ate too many cat box crunchies.

This happens to every pet owner.  Something’s off, you don’t know what, and you’re not sure if this is an emergency, an EMERGENCY, or your pet is just being weird for a few minutes.  While this article cannot replace solid veterinary advice, I have outlined when I think it absolutely is necessary that you contact a vet.  Call your vet any time you think your dog is sick.
