When faced with a pet emergency, stay calm and do not panic. Take your pet to your veterinarian or a 24 hour emergency animal hospital as quickly as possible. Whenever possible, call ahead to the vet so they can prepare for your arrival. Keep the phone number of your vet, or the nearest 24 hour emergency clinic near the phone so you can save time. When you call a veterinary clinic be as descriptive as possible when trying to explain the symptoms displayed by your pet.
