The Why, When, How
Sometimes we are not prepared for the worst-case scenario. Your partner took the car to work this morning, you're a teen and your parents are at work unable to get home quickly, you're elderly or maybe you don't have a car and never learned to drive...
The reasonings are many and in an emergency situation the last thing you need to worry about is how to get your beloved furbaby to the emergency vet, instead, you can call a Pet First Aider to assist you as a part of our emergency pet taxi initiative - one of our more unique pet services.
What will happen when you reach out;
You will be asked if you have called ahead to Glenfield Emergency Clinic or ARC Emergency Clinic and if they are expecting you.
You will be asked for your details, what happened, the size of your pet & age, whether if your pet is conscious and address where we need to meet you.
When we arrive we will assist where we can and make them as comfortable as possible. In the worst-case scenario, we are able to perform CPR.
Once the pet is in the car we will head straight to the emergency clinic. Depending on the situation and size of your pet we can take 1 or 2 people along in the car.
We will leave you & your pet at the vet to determine the next step. You would need to organise your own transport to get home.
This is a voluntary service and completely FREE. Do bear in mind I am only one person, so if you're unable to get through please try one of the suggestions below.
While this service is free we would like you to consider donating towards our organisation/rescue of the month. You can see more about this months not-for-profit HERE.
