Emergencies can include car accidents, chocolate ingestion, rat poisoning, or sudden illness. Signs to watch for in your pet include open wounds, refusal of water or food, vomiting, or uncharacteristic behavior changes. Being observant of your pet's regular behavior will help you to notice changes more quickly.

To help prevent emergencies make sure your pet proof your home. All poisons, pesticides, and medications should be safely stored and out of your pet's reach. Make sure your trash is contained in a pet proof container to discourage them from going through the garbage.

Dr. Hickin by far has been the best veterinarian I've brought one of my pets to. She went out of her way on numerous occasions to help me with my elderly cat Jack. She listens and takes her time. You never feel rushed or a burden. It has been a long time since I've worked with a doctor that showed they cared this much about their patients. Thank you Dr. Hickin for everything.
