Tips in an Emergency

Here is some simple advice from us and Vets Now in case your pet needs attention during the night or over the weekend:



  • Try to stay calm – it will help you AND your pet.

  • Take care when moving or transporting your pet.

  • If your pet is bleeding, try to wrap the bleeding area with a towel or blanket applying gentle pressure to the wound.

  • If you are transporting a large pet, a board or a blanket used as a stretcher could aid you. Smaller pets may be easier to transport in a cage or carrier.

  • If you suspect that your pet has mistakenly eaten something harmful, contact Vets Now ASAP and if possible tell the vet what it is. If the packaging is still available, take it with you to the clinic.


If your pet is already on medication, take it with you in its original packaging.
