The Pet E.R. Guide allows pet owners to plan ahead and care for their pets in the event of an emergency, even one that occurs in the middle of the night. It includes state-by-state listings of round-the-clock and after-hour veterinary clinics, complete with names, addresses, phone/fax numbers, and hours of operation. Other chapters cover what questions to ask when first contacting the emergency facility; veterinary teaching hospitals for the pet that needs special assistance; advice on emergency and evacuation planning; a records section for documenting a pet’s health and vet information; and to how to maintain a pet-safe home. This important chapter includes the ASPCA’s list of the ten most poisonous plants, lists of toxic and nontoxic plants, and the 24-hour phone number for NAPCC, the National Animal Poison Control Center. With this book, pet lovers can rest a little easier, knowing they’ll be fully prepared if an emergency occurs.
