Certain conditions, however, require immediate transport to the nearest veterinary facility. This course will help you to identify what course of action is appropriate for various emergencies.

Reading assignment: Learn what conditions require an immediate trip to a veterinary facility, and what could benefit from initial treatment at home.

The information was great to know in any emergency case. Although it is often difficult to remain cool headed in an emergency, the information will help if one can remember it when the emergency arises.

Probably an important one for people who don't know much about the topic or have any animal or human medical experience.
