Pets may be injured through trauma such as in the event of falling, getting hit by a car, or being attacked by another animal. The injuries are potentially severe, so quickly but safely get your pet to a vet. Commonly injured areas are long bones, or the upper/lower legs. If this is the case, the animal may be limping or holding the limb at an odd, dangling angle. Minimize jostling as you transport. Now, with spinal injuries, they may express pain at being moved, irregular breathing, or they may totally lack limb control. Take care not to make injuries worse.
