We have expanded our pet emergency services to include Grief Counseling and Grief Education for veterinarians, their staff and any person who has lost, or is going to lose their companion animal.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Animals in distress often die because they cannot receive medical care in time. Our beneficiaries are potentially everyone who cares for animals, as well as the animals themselves. An emergency vehicle will have a vet tech and a driver. The injured animal will receive medical care until they arrive at the vet's. Depending on the needs of the animal's owner, one of our Grief Counselors will ride in the emergency vehicle to provide comfort and information for the pet owner.
How will this project solve this problem?
We're working with techs from the veterinary medicine program at an area college to create curricula for volunteers & citizens. A vet tech from there will oversee scheduling of 24/7 on-call driver/techs who will respond to hotline calls.
Potential Long Term Impact
Successful intervention in more life-threatening situations will build a network of clinics and animal care providers.Our long term goal is to build a dedicated Pet A Medic Clinic, open 24/7, to care for companion animals and their caregivers.
