Household items in a pet emergency by Dr. Sarah

Thanks you Dr. Sarah for a great video about household items to use in a pet emergency.
Certain items to always have on hand and so much more - amazing!

It’s an unfortunate fact that our dogs and cats become sick and sustain injuries. And sometimes, getting to a vet quickly isn’t an option. Isn’t it comforting to know that you might be able to help simply by using items found in just about every home? Benefit from Dr. Sarah’s expertise as an emergency veterinary doctor, and watch this month’s episode of Pet Talk. You too can become a ‘Medical MacGyver’! Hopefully, you’ll learn something new that’ll help a companion animal in need until you can get to the vet.

If you’re a regular reader of our blog, you’ll know that we want you to be prepared. Being able to recognize an emergency situation as opposed from something that’ll ‘just pass’, is critical.

To make these vital decisions, we offer the following documents:
“Tips for Emergency Situations” and

“Recognize the Signs of Shock (Requires Immediate Vet Care)”
These are PDF’s to print for future use. Consider posting each page in a central location, like the refrigerator, for quick reference, should an emergency arise.
