In Case of Emergency
In the event that your pet experiences an injury or requires immediate healthcare attention, please follow these guidelines:
DO NOT PANIC – REMAIN CALM
PROTECT YOURSELF FROM INJURY
Pets in pain may scratch or bite. You may want to carefully wrap a large towel around your pet.
IF THERE IS A CHANCE OF BACK OR NECK INJURY
Carefully place your pet on a wooden board or padded ironing board and minimize movement during transportation.
IF THERE IS ACTIVE BLEEDING
Apply direct pressure to any area with active bleeding.
IF YOU SUSPECT POISONING
Seek immediate treatment and bring any product packaging.
