Thanks, Cher, for a very important article!
Find out if your regular vet sees daytime emergencies and whether she/he is on call for nights and weekends.
Locate the nearest emergency facility and have their phone number, location and driving directions readily available. Find out their payment policies in advance and be prepared.
Researching this information at the time of an emergency wastes precious time that might mean life or death for your pet.

Thank you Cher. Sharing.
And yes! to what Barbara said, is very important. I teach health and safety and that is one of the things that you don't want to put to much thought into when there is an emergency. Put this info by your phone so it is visible.

Thanks for the list!
I donīt agree with the fight thing, though. If a cat is bleeding heavily or something, I would of course rush it to the vet. But if it just fought another cat and lost a few bushes of hair, I would not bother. A few scratches cannot be too bad, either.
