Your Guide To Handling Emergency Veterinary Visits 

Pet owners know that emergency veterinary visits can occur at the least opportune moment. As such, it’s imperative to be prepared for the unexpected at all times. To streamline emergency veterinary care and ensure your dog or cat gets the medical attention and relief they need as quickly as possible, we’re here to serve as your guide in emergency veterinary visits. Discover the most efficient ways to prepare you and your pet for emergency situations with our help. 

Create An Emergency Veterinary Care Fund 

Veterinary expenses can be costly. This is especially true when it comes to emergency veterinary care as these veterinarians often have premium prices due to their extended hours and the specialty needs of emergency medical cases. To avoid financial strain and the possibility of not being able to cover your pet’s vital needs, we recommend starting an emergency veterinary care fund and purchasing a pet insurance policy. 

Keep Emergency Contact Information Readily Accessible 

First things first, it’s important to scope out the nearest emergency veterinarian before emergencies strike. This will save you valuable time and stress in crisis situations. Furthermore, keep the emergency veterinarian’s address and contact information in a readily accessible location along with the contact information for the Poison Control and Pet Poison Helpline. 

Have Your Pet’s Medical Records On Hand 

A trip to the emergency veterinarian is a stressful situation. To avoid forgetting pertinent information, it’s important to have your pet’s medical records on-hand at all times. Especially since this emergency veterinarian may not be your pet’s standard veterinarian. We recommend keeping a copy in your vehicle, purse, or stored on your phone and updating it often.
