Pet care – planning for emergencies

Looking after your pet in an emergency.

We know how important your pet is to you. They are part of the family. But have you thought about what would happen to them if you became unwell or went into hospital? It is a very good idea to make a plan to ensure your pet is looked after in the event of an emergency.

You may have a relative or close friend who would be happy to look after your pet temporarily, or your Vet of may be able recommend good foster homes.

Alternatively, you can register your pet with The Cinnamon Trust (Telephone 01736 757900) or Waggy Tails Rescue (Telephone 01202 875000).

Whatever arrangements you make, keep a note of them, including names and contact details, and put them somewhere in your home where they can be easily found if the need arises.

Please also keep your pet up to date with vaccinations and treatments.
