If you are planning to travel and leave your pet behind with a pet sitter, be sure they are left with clear instructions for emergency situations. All too often do we get calls from pet sitters in a panic. Whether it was the pet sitter’s fault or not, you are responsible for making sure they get your pet the veterinary attention it needs.
Our veterinary emergency hospital sees many interesting and heartbreaking cases. We see animals who come in unconscious and non-responsive and animals who simply have an ear infection. Our doctors are super quick on their feet and are ready for any emergency.
