Are you prepared if you have a medical emergency with your Ragdoll cat? If your emergency happens during your veterinarian’s normal business hours you could rush your cat to the office; however, what about during the night or on weekends?

There are a number of emergency animal clinics and animal hospitals that operate on a 24 hour basis. These clinics and hospitals cater to all forms of animals and just about any emergency. It is a good idea to locate the nearest 24 hour clinic and keep the address and phone number on your refrigerator in case of an emergency.

It is also a good idea to visit 24 hour animal facilities in your area before you have an emergency. Good emergency animal clinics staff a veterinarian at all hours of the day. These clinics offer emergency veterinary services including surgery and dental care in addition to standard veterinary services. Because of the emergency nature of these clinics and hospitals expect to pay a premium for services performed there.

It is always best to take your Ragdoll cat to the veterinarian in case of a medical emergency; however, 24 hour care from your vet is not always possible. Take some time to research 24 hour facilities in your area. When an emergency presents itself you will be better prepared to care for your Ragdoll cat, and you could save your furry friend’s life.
