LIFE THREATENING EMERGENCIES

 

Examples of life-threatening emergency:

  • Hit by car

  • Bleeding profusely

  • Drowning

  • Unresponsive

  • Cool to the touch (very low body temp)

  • Suspected poisoning

If you believe your foster is having a life-threatening medical emergency, go to the closest open veterinary medical provider. It is a good idea to have a few regular- and after-hours veterinarians in your phone in case of emergency. As soon as you can, advise your Foster Mentor. If your Foster Mentor is unavailable, please call the emergency line 754-264-8688. 

NON LIFE-THREATENING EMERGENCIES 

 

Examples of a non-life-threatening emergency:

  • Pet not acting “normal”

  • Unusual vomiting/diarrhea

  • Lower-than-normal body temp

  • Pet not eating
