Ways to Prepare
The best time to plan for a pet emergency is before you have one! Consider these four tips to help make an emergency situation a little less stressful for you and your pet.

- Prepare Your Pet Carrier
Inspect your pet carrier or pet vehicle restraints. Make sure they are in good
working condition. If using a carrier, place a clean towel into a plastic bag (to keep it clean until needed) for quick use in case you need to leave quickly.
- Copy Your Pet’s Vet Records
Keep a recent copy of your pet’s vaccination records in an envelope with your pet carrier, in your car’s glove compartment, or take a picture of them with your phone and save the picture to your email, Google Drive, or Cloud. Be sure to update these copies annually. Having these records on-hand can save time and money avoiding duplicate vaccinations or blood tests.
- Apply for Care Credit
In an emergency situation, the last thing anyone wants to worry about is finance. Consider applying for Care Credit now to help finance unforeseen emergency charges.
