IN AN EMERGENCY

emergency logo –THIS IS A VERY SHORT, BUT VERY IMPORTANT BLOG–
This cannot be stressed enough….when you have a (life threatening) pet emergency:
PLEASE-MAKE SURE YOU CALL THE FACILITY YOU ARE GOING TO…either before, or, if able, as you are headed over. Do not waste one minute of precious time driving to a hospital, where there may, or may not, be a vet available to immediately treat your pet. Also, a head’s up to the vet regarding what the emergency is, will allow them to prepare ahead of time and render the best care, in the fastest time possible.
We realize that in an emergency, it is difficult to keep a cool head and think about this type of thing, but it may make the difference between saving your pet, or not.
Quick tips:
**Keep your regular vet’s and the nearest 24 hour emergency facility’s phone number on your refrigerator at home and in your wallet or store them in your phone.
**Learn where the nearest 24 hour emergency facility is located BEFORE you need them. (We have California Veterinary Specialists in Murrieta open 24/7 as well as The Emergency Pet Clinic in Temecula which is open nights and weekends)
**Whenever possible, have someone go with you to the vet during an emergency. They can be on the phone calling ahead, or driving for you while you call.

Your staff is outgoing and friendly. They make you feel welcome and they like to welcome the animal as well. For only seeing my dog 2-3 times, they seemed to remember her.
