Emergency Veterinarian Care & First Aid


They can be stressful and traumatic for you and your pet. We’ve drawn up some guidelines to help to make it’s as stress-free as possible:
Find the nearest emergency Veterinary clinic near you. Make sure they cover 24/7.
Look up their location and know where to go.
Add their telephone number to your cell phone.
In some cases every minute counts, call the clinic and let them know that you are on your way.

Give them as much information as possible, if you know what happened and describe the dog’s symptoms. This way the staff at the clinic can prepare for your arrival.
