  • Don't panic. Focus on the moment.
  • A pet in pain may bite; wrap your pet in a blanket.
  • Transport in a kennel or cage if possible. If not, place the animal on the floor of your vehicle.
  • Apply direct pressure to any bleeding.
  • If you suspect poisoning, call 970-484-8080 immediately. Bring product and packaging.
  • Do not force your pet to vomit. Every poisoning case is different and requires professional assessment. Vomiting may make things worse.
  • If you suspect a back or neck injury, put your pet on a flat surface and transport the pet on it.
  • Let us know you're on the way. Call 970-484-8080 and describe the situation. Keep your personal safety in mind.
