Animal Care Experts at Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital Treat Common Pet Injuries Every Day, Ewa, Hawaii

As much as you love your pet and work hard to care for him or her properly, it's inevitable that injuries will occur. That's why there are so many common injuries to household pets; despite your best efforts, accidents happen.

The team of animal care experts at Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital in Waipahu, HI has seen many of these injuries take place. They've become well-seasoned in the art of treating them. Here are some of the most common injuries your dog or cat may sustain, and how your veterinarian can help:

  • Eating Something They're Not Supposed To: Some foreign bodies, like a harmless plant or piece of human food, may not be so harmful. If your pet swallows a toy a few sizes too small or ingests a sock on the floor, you may find that they are vomiting or refraining from eating. Most items will pass, but if they do not, be sure to call your pet doctor.
  • Getting Hit By A Car: If you let your dog off lead frequently or your cat wanders the neighborhood, this is one potentially fatal incident they become vulnerable to. If you see it happen or suspect your pet has been hit, stabilize their wound by wrapping it. You might not notice bruising, tears, or internal ruptures, so keep an eye on your pet and bring them in to a pet hospital promptly.
  • Dog Bites: Animals sometimes fight with one another. While not all injuries are immediately recognizable, any cuts or wounds should be cleaned and covered right away. Stop the bleeding as best you can until you get your pet medical attention. Bring them to the veterinary hospital without moving them a great deal in case of internal injuries.

These animal injuries may sound alarming, but Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital can easily treat many of them. If your pet has been injured bring them in for medical attention. Find peace of mind for yourself, and comfort and care for your animal in the event of an injury by calling (808) 671-7387. Twenty-four hour emergency medical care is available.
