Emergency

Hello friend, I put below some advice on how to behave and the normal vital values of a dog and the list of emergency numbers.

How to react?

  • Stay calm and reassure your dog
  • Call your veterinarian or the one on duty (depending on the time)
  • Do not give your dog any medicine without the advice of a veterinarian
  • Beware, in case of severe pain, your dog may react aggressively

Normal vital values of a dog

  • Rectal body temperature: between 38 and 39 degrees Celsius.
    Beware, the hot nose is not a good indicator of fever, it's a popular belief!
  • Heart rate: between 60-160/min depending on the size of the dog
  • Respiratory rate: between 14-30/min. depending on the size of the dog
  • Color of oral mucosa: pink
