Knowing When to Seek Emergency Veterinary Care
Emergencies are always unexpected, but it is a good idea to know what to do if something happens to your dog or cat. The first step is knowing when to get immediate veterinary care.
Read the following resources on dogs or cats that provide a list of concerns that require emergency veterinary intervention:

As you have read in the above resources, staying calm is key so that you can assess the situation and take the next steps. Always have your veterinarian’s number and an emergency veterinarian number readily available. Follow instructions that your emergency veterinary clinic provides when dealing with urgent medical issues or injuries.
