The world is in utter chaos right now due to the Coronavirus. Almost everyone is on quarantine in their own homes, and many businesses and services have already closed.
Even veterinary offices are closing down. Humans have their hospitals who can treat them when they are sick and down, but what about the pets? They really have it “ruff”. Thankfully, there is a hero online offering his services for the poor furbabies in our homes.
Meet Dr. Mann Cyron E. Sarmiento, a noble veterinarian answering his call of helping out the sick to our friends with fur, feathers, and everything in between. He has opened up his Twitter and Facebook accounts to accommodating various “pawrents” who are concerned about their “pupperinos”.
However, do take note that Dr. Sarmiento aims to help people determine whether your concern is an emergency or not. If your pet clearly needs immediate and urgent medical help, do not hesitate to bring it to a vet office that accepts emergency cases.
“This idea stems from the medical community as we also started ‘online inquiries’ for medical concerns. This is to lessen the movement of people and lessen ER consults. Again, the whole purpose is to triage patients,”– Dr. Sarmiento
The doctor also tweeted out that in case it isn’t an emergency, his advice only involves wound cleaning, pet hydration, proper feeding, etc. So, if you have a question about your furbaby which you are unsure if it would need serious help, send a DM on his way. He entertains questions until 12 midnight. Remember, stay safe and keep your pets safe too.
