    Please only post true emergencies in the Emergencies, Injuries & Cures forum. All other issues should be placed in the appropriate diseases forum for that particular animal species.

    What is an emergency?

    Wikipedia states:

    An emergency is a situation that poses an immediate risk to health or life. Most emergencies require urgent intervention to prevent a worsening of the situation. Some emergencies are not immediately threatening to life, but might have serious implications for the continued health and well-being of the animal (although a health emergency can subsequently escalate to be threatening to life).

    In order to be defined as an emergency, the incident should be one of the following:
    Immediately threatening to life or health.
    Have already caused loss of life or health detriments.
    Have a high probability of escalating to cause immediate danger to life or health.
