The Importance of Registering with Your Local Vet

Establishing a Relationship for Better Emergency Care

Upon acquiring a pet, it's advisable to register them with a local vet. This registration aids in:

  • Record Keeping: Your vet maintains treatment and vaccination records, facilitating emergency responses.
  • Stress Reduction: Familiarity with your vet alleviates anxiety for both you and your pet during visits.

Swift Action in Pet Emergencies

Calling Your Vet for Immediate Assistance

In case of an emergency, promptly contact your vet. Save their number in your mobile phone for quick access. Benefits include:

  • Preparedness: Your vet can prepare for your arrival, expediting treatment upon your pet's arrival.
  • Over-the-Phone Guidance: Vets may provide initial care advice via phone to address immediate concerns.

If the situation demands, your vet might make a house call. Ensure they have your correct address and watch for their arrival.
