Emergency Health Care For Your Dog

Prepare in advance
You can prepare in advance for an emergency by talking with your veterinarian. Find out if he or she has a schedule of emergency. Many veterinarians now no, but your veterinarian may recommend a local veterinary emergency clinic near you. You should know your vet days and hours of operation and the emergency clinic. Know where the emergency clinic is and how to get there quickly. Keep these numbers handy. They can put on your refrigerator, for example, or put them on your mobile. Having this information available can save valuable time if your dog has an emergency.
