VetHelpDirect is a web-based assessment tool for determining whether or not your pet needs veterinary care, as well as getting reliable information about various animal behaviours and conditions. The site has expanded to provide assessments and facts on horses, donkeys, rabbits, reptiles, and birds, but Fido and Mr. Scruffles are covered as well, of course. Head to the site, select an animal, then answer a series of questions. Based on the responses to the questions, the site database will recommend immediate emergency veterinary care, care within the next day, or assure the user that the behaviour is not usually an indicator of an illness, or just needs at-home treatment. In addition to the assessment tool, there are general guides on pet care and conditions to help pet owners take better preventative care of their animals. Free to use, no sign-up required.
