Emergency check list 
  • Check in with your veterinarian. Most veterinary hospitals have modified hours of operation, and may have changed what services they are able to provide.  It’s important you know who to call, where to go, and what you can expect when you arrive, in case of emergency, or for routine care. 
  • Identify someone – a trustworthy family member/neighbour/friend, who is willing to care for your pet in the event that you are no longer able to. 
  • Prepare a list of instructions for daily careinclude contact information for the assigned caregiver. Ensure that this information is easily accessible to whomever may need to make arrangements on your behalf. Be sure to list any special care your pet requiressuch as medications, specific diets, or other special needs 
  • Try to have a twoweek supply of food, treats, or medications on hand at all times.
