Emergencies ..... First Aid knowledge....

We hope you never need the information in a hurry, but we also know that emergencies do happen, and not always to other people.  Being prepared does alleviate some of the stress of what is happening to you and your pet.

Disaster preparedness is what it is all about.  And it is something that we have thought about, having lived through the 1998 floods  locally, and watching what has happened in many recent years with fires, floods and overall mayhem!

For all of the registered clients of Russell Vale Animal Clinic, we are happy to be an "evacuation centre" for your pets if there is nowhere for them to go.   In the event of a declared natural disaster, this is at no charge, but we will accept donations of any food, bedding and volunteers if this is needed at these times.

Each time you check your smoke detector battery, update your pet's Emergency Information, and keep a copy.  If you wish to email us a copy of your pet's information, we are happy to attach it to your pet's file as needed, at no charge.

Stay safe, Be prepared.
