How you can help during an emergency:

Remember to stay calm. Animals are sensitive to people’s emotions, so if you stay calm your pet will be calmer, too. Please bring your pet to us as soon as possible after a trauma, or call us at 518 235 1710 if you have any questions regarding your pet’s condition. Remember that a pet in pain may even bite its owner, so be careful when handling a pet that is experiencing pain.
