Sick Pet - Finding a Vet and/or Online Help
I think my pet is sick. Who can help me?
The ASPCA regrets that we are unable to provide specific medical advice for your pet, or to comment on the medical care offered by a licensed health care professional. In order to properly diagnose a medical condition, a licensed veterinarian should be consulted. Self-diagnosis or delay seeking proper veterinary care may worsen your pet's condition.
If your pet is showing unusual or abnormal behavior or exhibiting signs of illness, such as loss of appetite, vomiting and diarrhea, or blood in the stool or urine, you should consult your veterinarian as soon as possible. Early detection and treatment of medical problems offers the best chance of successful treatment.
