Pet Emergencies - are you prepared?
I got a message and ended up speaking with a woman who found Pet Talk, and needed help with a hamster issue and had no idea what to do or where to turn. After we spoke on the phone for a bit, I gave her the phone number for Angell Memorial in Boston, which has an Emergency Help Line, it is part of the Massachusetts SPCA.
But it occurred to me - as pet emergencies rarely happen when the vet's office is open, do you know who you could call in such an event?
I know I am fortunate, no only do I have them not too far away, there are two 24-hour vet clinics a couple miles from here.
Just in case anyone ever needs it, the number I gave her is Angell Memorial Emergency: 617-522-7282 (press 1)
How about folks list their own resources for such events, just so people can check here if necessary ...
