What to do When Your Pet is Hurt or Injured in Memphis

It can be scary when your pet gets hurt or injured. As a pet owner, it's important to know what to do to protect your pet, and where to go in the event that your pet needs veterinary care. At PetVax Complete Care Centers in Memphis, we treat injured pets. Our experienced, knowledgeable veterinary professionals have the skills and tools it takes to care for injured animals.

What to Do If Your Pet is Injured

  1. Check your pet for consciousness and breathing. If your pet's eyes are closed, check your pet for breathing.

  2. Assess your pet's mental and emotional state. If your pet is awake, he or she may be angry, fearful or confused. This can make pets aggressive. Keep your hands and body parts away from your pet's mouth.

  3. Contact your pet's veterinarian. Keep the phone number for a local veterinarian on hand at all times to ensure that you have someone to call if your pet becomes injured. Your pet's veterinarian will be able to tell you what to do based on your pet's injuries and his or her state of mind. If needed, your pet's veterinarian may instruct you to bring your pet to the vet's office.
