What to Do in an Emergency
Keep in mind that pets may react aggressively when injured. So, the first thing to do is approach your pet calmly, kneel down (if appropriate), and call their name. If that doesn’t work, call us for help right away. Once calm, lift them gently into your vehicle and transport him to our clinic. Support his neck and back if you suspect a spinal injury.
