Electric shocks can cause burns, organ damage and death. All pets that have had an electric shock should be checked by a vet because there may be internal/delayed injuries that are not obvious at first.
Collapse can be caused by many different problems including: heart disease, low blood sugar, pain, breathing difficulties, Addison’s disease, blood loss and seizures.
Moving an injured pet needs to be done carefully to avoid making any injuries worse. Stay calm, reassure your pet, check their injuries and make sure you and they are safe before moving them.
