IN CASE OF EMERGENCY
If you need to go to the emergency room:
Bring your foster directly to the e-vet. Do not wait until you hear from us. If it is a true emergency do not call ahead to the vet. Just show up. Emergency facilities are legally required to take steps to stabilize a patient if it is there, but if are at capacity, they will try to send you elsewhere. Give the vet our phone numbers and we will authorize care, arrange payment, and make treatment decisions.
Reasons to go to an emergency vet:
Not breathing/labored breathing/choking
(Male cats) Straining in the litter box w/ no urine production
Toxic object ingestion
Trauma/injury (broken bones)
Hard, distended, painful abdomen
Complete and persistent inappetence
Neurological symptoms (extreme head tilt, mobility issues, tremors)
This facebook page is a good resource that shows a list and wait times for various ER Vets in Western Washington. It's a very difficult time in emergency vet med, and you may have to work hard to find a place to go.
