1. Heat Stroke

An overheated cat may appear dizzy, pant or drool heavily stagger, or even loss of consciousness.

2. Dystocia

Dystocia is difficult or dangerous labor. if your cat seems to be taking forever to deliver her kittens, she may be in danger.

3. Urinary Dysfunction

Failure to urinate, or painful urination, may be caused by dangerous obstructions such as stones.

4. Digestive Emergencies

A swallowed object can cause intense pain and internal damage. A hard, distended abdomen may be a sign of bloat, a condition that normally affects dogs but can also affect cats. Uncontrollable diarrhea and vomiting can cause fatal dehydration.

5. Trauma

Fractures, uncontrolled bleeding, and other trauma should be considered an emergency.
