IN CASE OF EMERGENCY
CALL (630) 365-5600
STAY OFF THE PHONE NUMBER GIVEN TO THE ANSWERING SERVICE SO THAT THE VETERINARIAN CAN CALL YOU BACK.
IF YOU DO NOT HEAR BACK FROM THE VETERINARIAN WITHIN 15-20 MINUTES, CALL AGAIN. It is possible the answering service wrote down the wrong number, or the message did not go through the first time due to technical difficulties.
In case you are not on-site when the emergency happens, have our phone number (630-365-5600) displayed on the stall door for easy access. Knowing your horse’s Temperature, Pulse and Heart Rate can assist your vet during an emergency. Also have insurance information available if your horse is insured. A first aid kit is a great idea to keep on hand at the barn.
