When making emergency preparedness plans, it’s important to factor in your pets. This is true whether you are preparing for severe weather emergencies that affect a broad area or you are thinking about worst-case scenarios that relate specifically to your animal companions. June is National Pet Preparedness Month, and we at Animal Ark Veterinary Hospital are here to tell you about why a 24-hour vet is an essential part of keeping your pet safe.
Emergencies are, by nature, chaotic times. The idea of pet preparedness is to make sure you have a clear plan for what to do to keep your pet safe and healthy in a variety of scenarios. In the same way that you should leave a babysitter a list of people to contact if anything happens to your child, you should create a similar list of pet care professionals to assist you if anything happens to your pet, and one of those professionals should be a 24-hour vet like ours at Animal Ark Veterinary Hospital. Our experienced team will be here to provide expert care any time, day or night, to keep your pet safe and healthy.
While you can’t predict every possible emergency, you can do your best to work out who you should call for assistance ahead of time. To make sure you have a reliable team to go to if your pet is in trouble, we at Animal Ark Veterinary Hospital encourage you to make our 24-hour vet part of your pet preparedness strategy.
