  • Bleeding
  • Labored or noisy breathing
  • Difficulty urinating or defecating
  • Seizures or collapse
  • Ingestion of toxins or foreign objects (e.g. grapes, raisins, chocolate, and more)
  • Inability or difficulty walking
  • Trauma such as bite wounds or being hit by a car
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Distension of the abdomen, wretching (bloating)
