Calling a veterinarian in the first few minutes can really save the life of the animal. So if you have some background knowledge try to help the animal, but if you feel that you are not capable of doing that, call the vet immediately. You do not want to lose the animal. Search for the nearest veterinarian clinic and go there. Apologize to all the people that are waiting, and tell them that it is an emergency case that needs to be handled. The veterinarian will examine the animal and will do everything possible to save it. Like it was mentioned above, it is extremely important to take the animal within the first few minutes.

Animals can get hurt by lots of things and on many different ways. The most important thing is to understand when they are in danger and when they require help. Once you notice something strange call the vet and ask for a help. If you cannot move the animal ask the veterinarian to come on the place where the animal is. Just make sure that the animal is not exposed on the sun.

Something stuck in the throat

Lots of things can get stuck in the throat of the animals. If the animal is breathing hard, it may die if you do not help immediately. Try to remove the object by opening the mouth of the animal and removing it with your fingers. If this fails, the veterinarian will remove it under anesthetic.

Toxins

Poisoning is not so rare in animals, because they are less selective and can therefore eat different poisonous things. They can also wear out poisons on their fur and swallow it.  Symptoms include: Acute vomiting, collapse, severe muscle spasms, seizures, weakness or bleeding.

Stop further ingestion of the toxin.

Wash the animal

Call a veterinarian immediately.

If You think you know exactly what did the animal swallow, take it to the veterinarian along with the container in which it was located.

Do not waste time trying to heal the animal yourself – perhaps it needs special medications. A vet can give a proper help to the animal in order to get him to recover. The vet can help the animal if you take it within the first half an hour.

Wounds and cuts

The most common injuries to the animals are bites. If you see blood on the hair, first determine the source. If it is not visible in the search ask for a help from a veterinarian. If necessary, cut the hair to clearly see the wound. Stop the bleeding. Preferably, bandage the wound. Call a veterinarian.

Accidents, to pay attention to:

Heartbeat

Movement of breathing

Major bleeding

Difficult breathing

Inability to stand

Visible fractures

In some of these situations, carefully move the animal and call the veterinarian in order to save the animal.
