We know that sometimes our dogs can fall ill and begin to show the associated symptoms, but what happens if they aren't your typical concerns? Here, our Blountville vets talk about why your dog has a dry heaving cough and what you can do to help them.

What to do in a Pet Emergency
Basic First-Aid Strategies Can Be Helpful
Basic first-aid strategies may help stabilize your pet for transport. Once you feel confident transporting your pet, head to our Blountville veterinary hospital immediately. Call us ahead of time if you can.
- Strategies for Dogs
Slowly and calmly approach your dog, kneel down and call their name. If there is any indication of aggression, back away and call for help. If your pet seems passive, construct a makeshift stretcher and gently lift him or her onto it while supporting the neck and back areas.
- Strategies for Cats
To help prevent your cat from biting, if they experience pain as you stabilize them, gently place a blanket or towel over their head. Slowly lift your cat and place him or her in an open-topped carrier or box, supporting the head and neck area carefully as you do so.
Continuing Care After The Emergency
- Our experienced veterinary team is here to see you through a pet emergency. When it's time to go back to your primary veterinarian for post-emergency and ongoing care, we'll ensure they have access to our records for the care we have provided for your pet.
Great staff, super friendly, reasonably priced. It is an after hours clinic/hospital so you can expect to wait. I think that's a pretty reasonable expectation, especially considering people can just walk in. This was the first time I've ever had to come here and hopefully the last. However I'm grateful we have this facility available. They were awesome to my girl.
So very thankful there is a place like this after regular vet business hours. The staff was absolutely great. They talked with us to make sure they understood what was wrong and made sure we knew everything that they were doing and why. They took excellent care of my baby boy.
Everyone was super nice and very compassionate. It was a busy day so be ready to wait but you can count on very good one on one attention about all of the details about your pet and what needs to be done and up front costs. Thank you for being there Airport Pet Emergency!
