This is a collective assortment of links to other groups and organizations that can help answer questions about your pets. Some are for vital emergencies, like the poison center. Others are for general interest and browsing. Please follow your interests and feel free to suggest more that you find helpful. There are a great many websites out there and we can’t discover them all. As our collection expands we hope to broaden the discussion to other areas of interest.

Emergency Pet Care

UC Davis has a great 24 hour ICU. They also have some the brightest and most experienced doctors and technicians you’ll find anywhere. We are lucky to be so close and have access to their services.

ASPCA is an excellent resource if your pet has eaten a poison, cleanser, fertilizer, inappropriate medication, etc.

Vista Veterinary Specialists is another great emergency clinic that is open 24 hours.

Solano-Napa Pet Emergency is a great emergency clinic that is closer to the Vacaville/Fairfield area.
