Although accidents and events happen instantly and without warning, an illness may been present for some time but only discovered and suddenly become an emergency.

Cats and dogs cannot communicate verbally and explain how they feel or what has happened to them. However they do have indications and signs that may reveal vital information that could help you to determine a course of action.

Is its heart beating?

Is it bleeding?

Is its temperature normal?

Is it behaving abnormally?

Would you know how to administer first aid, including CPR on a cat or dog?
