Until decisions and preparations can be made, place your pet companion in the coldest part of your home. Put plastic down on the floor (a plastic bag or tarp will work) and then place a blanket on top of the plastic. Place your pet companion on top of the blanket and then cover your pet companion with another towel or blanket.  At this time, if possible, make any necessary aftercare arrangements.

Please call us anytime if you would like more information or require aftercare for your pet companion.

Yes, final disposition is a choice of pet companion parent/family. We always encourage pet companion parents/families to do so.  Remember, the type and quality of aftercare you want for your pet companion is a personal decision that only you and/or your family can make.  You can always tell your veterinarian how you want your pet to be cared for and by whom.  We will gladly remove & transport your pet companion from any veterinarian at no additional charge to you. You can call us directly and we will respond to your veterinarian’s office at the time you request.  Please don’t hesitate to call with any questions.
