1. Remain calm. You are doing your best for your pet by taking steps to help.
2. Call your family veterinarian first. If they are unavailable, call us.
3. Tell us the nature of the problem. We will give you instructions on how to handle your pet while en route, and give you directions to the hospital.
4. Be careful. When injured and scared, even a loving pet may bite. If in doubt, gently place a towel or blanket over the head making sure to provide good air circulation for breathing. This will help settle the animal.
