The ER? seriously why is it that every little bump scrape bruise or bite deserves an ER visit?
I understand there are times that its needed but come on.
Fever- cool/lukewarm bath and keep them in bed the rest of the time.
Cut- super glue if its bad and bandage and kiss if its not. Obviously clean the wound first.
Bump their head- ice pack and keep an eye on them to make sure no concussion.
Bite- OK yea better safe than sorry if you don't know if an animal was poison or rabid. If it was your pet/neighborhood pet that you know is up to date on shots clean and bandage and kiss.
Okay my rant is over. Continue on with your evening :)
