For many of us, our pets are part of the family. When they are critically sick or injured, getting them emergency care is our top priority. The Emergency Critical Care unit of the Bailey Small Animal Teaching Hospital treats small animal patients in need of emergency care every day.
When pet emergencies happen, it’s not only stressful for pets and their owners, but can also be costly, finding owners unprepared for the financial burden. Sometimes grant funds may be available from outside agencies, but they can take days for application processing and often can’t be used for emergency care.
This Tiger Giving Day, Auburn Vet Med is raising funds to help offset the cost of emergency treatment when small animal owners need financial assistance. The Patient Emergency Treatment, or PET Fund, will provide financial assistance to our clients who cannot afford emergency care for their sick or injured pet.
Use of these funds can be approved within minutes any time of the day or night, allowing patients to receive the emergency lifesaving care they need while reducing the financial burden for their owners.
Please consider donating to the Small Animal Patient Emergency Treatment (PET) Fund this Tiger Giving Day and help us provide financial assistance when our four-legged friends need it most.
