Will I have time to drive that far?

The closest Evet is about 40 min away.
What If I have a super emergency?
Bloat?
Can I call 911?
I mean.....are there 24 hr on call vets? (CT)
(Everything is ok....I just like to be prepared! I worry alot so I like to have a plan)

Call your vet and ask. They may know of somewhere closer.

Re: Will I have time to drive that far?

911 is not going to get involved with a dog. If the nearest e-vet is that far away then I would call them and find out the best plan of action. Such as do you call on the way? do you call before you leave? Is there another vet in the vicinity? If they are not there then who covers for them?

I would call your regular vet and ask. Our local vets rotate "on call" for emergencies.

UMM NO 911 is not for animals....You need to double check and ask around to put a plan in place in case you ever need it.The closest e vet is 30 minutes away from me so I have no choice.If my vet is open it's 30 minutes so I just have to go by who is open when the emergency arrives.If I think it will need over night care and possibly a couple of nights I have another 24 hr one that is around 45 minutes away.It all depend on what emergency comes up.

Double check on that too.(Angel not Amaruq)I thought my old one did that but when I had an emergency at 10PM one night it took me an hour to get a hold of them then they sent me to the E vet.Needless to say I switched vets since it was a hassle to have them get back to me after hours.

I've heard if you give them gasex, that will buy you time. Might be the topic of a new thread becuase I'm by no means experienced with bloat other than loosing one dog to it 25 years ago.

They should have a type of 911 for pets!

I know I would pay extra for it (maybe pay someone at the vet clinic to be on call?).
