If you go into hospital you will need someone to look after your pet.
The most common option is to ask a family member, good neighbour or friend to help. If not, for cats and dogs, you may need to contact a local kennel or cattery. You should be able to find details of these in your local telephone directory.
You could ask your local veterinary surgeon or the local Dog Warden to suggest some options.
