Okay, this did not happen to me but I am curious.

Has anyone ever missed something important at school because of a pet emergency? Like an exam or presentation? Do they accept that as an emergency?

Has anyone ever asked a vet for a note? Something like "Please note that on this day so-n-so brought in little-guy for an emergency appointment due to a life-threatening laceration" or something like that. A friend just had a pet accident before a test and it wasn't an emergency and she made the test it got us thinking, what if it had been?

I don't think they'll let you miss an EXAM for it, but for other things, it would depend on the prof.

I've never missed anything school related for the cats, but I've missed work. Thankfully I have a job that totally understands pet emergencies :)

Not for Life-Threatening lacerations? I would cry, or fail....
