When The Grey Area was a printed newspaper, sometimes we included a feature called “Something to Clip for your ‘Fridge.” It was often tips or contact numbers for area businesses.

This article is online, not a newspaper clipping, but it may be a good listing to print and keep handy if you have pets in the house. It is a list of emergency veterinarians in case your pets need quick help.

Note that in addition to the Emergency Care locations listed here, some veterinarians will accept after-hours calls from existing clients for pet-patients. Check with your vet, before you need it, to find out if they offer emergency care.
