Heat stroke is a life-threatening emergency and immediate care should be sought. Pets are at greater risk for heat stroke when the temperature rises suddenly, there is high humidity, or the pet is confined in an area with poor ventilation. Other risk factors include certain medications, brachycephalic confirmation, laryngeal paralysis, obesity, heart disease, and increased age.

Signs of heatstroke:

Elevated temperature
Panting and salivation
Drowsiness and disorientation

Allergic Reactions

Allergic reactions in animals are typically due to insects. Other possible causes of allergic reactions can be from food, vaccines, or other medications. Allergic reactions can vary in severity from mild to severe. Severe allergic reactions can progress to anaphylactic shock, which is a life-threatening condition. If you think your pet has been stung or bitten by an insect, then please bring your pet to Cross Creek Animal Hospital for immediate care.

Gastrointestinal Issues

Gastrointestinal issues can occur in dogs and cats at any time, but certain factors may increase the likelihood of these problems. It’s important to be aware of the signs and seek veterinary care promptly to ensure the best outcome for your pet.

Common gastrointestinal disorders include:

  • Canine Parvovirus
  • Inflammation of the Large Intestine (Colitis)
  • Constipation
  • Bloat
  • Inflammation of the Stomach (Gastritis)
  • Cancers of the Digestive System
  • Gastrointestinal Obstruction
  • Gastrointestinal Ulcers
  • Hemorrhagic Gastroenteritis
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Malabsorption

Symptoms of gastrointestinal issues in pets can manifest in various ways. Look out for the following signs:

Vomiting: Frequent or persistent vomiting, especially if it contains blood or other concerning symptoms.

Diarrhea: Loose, watery, or bloody stools that occur frequently or persistently.

Loss of Appetite: A noticeable decrease in your pet’s interest in food or refusal to eat altogether.

Abdominal Pain: Your pet may show discomfort, such as restlessness, whining, or reluctance to be touched around the belly area.

Weight Loss: Unexplained weight loss or a noticeable change in your pet’s body condition.


Severe or bleeding wounds must be dealt with immediately.

You may gently apply pressure with a clean cloth to control bleeding. DO NOT remove any foreign object from the wound. DO NOT attempt to clean an open wound with alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, or any other over-the-counter disinfectant. Bring your pet to us immediately for wound assessment and repair.
