Things I can think of off the top of my head that IMO should be seen immediately
-obvious deformity or damage to the eye (anything from pussy green or yellow discharge to visible scratches and more)
-large amounts of blood in stool
-profuse vomiting and diarrhea
-increased or decreased urination, or the same for water intake
-trying to vomit or wretch/gag and not producing or producing very little
-inability to stand
-cold temp to touch, or pale or blue-ing gums or mucus membranes
-overdose of medication
hopefully it isn't something serious!
