Today there was a question which required immediate attention.
The asker had incorrectly selected the "disaster" tag to label the question (disaster is for, well, disaster preparation and post-disaster issues, where a disaster is an earthquake, flood, etc.)
Here is what I wrote for emergency:
A situation which requires immediate attention. You will more than likely be directed to contact a local veterinarian.
Emergency tag is used to label questions which are concerns that require (or required) immediate responses and attention. As this is the internet, and Pets.SE is not an emergency help clinic, you should not wait for an answer and instead must consider contacting a local veterinarian immediately for advice.
The intent was to create a tag to label those questions which require immediate medical attention (medical-emergency ?). We cannot possibly ensure someone can answer a question in a timely manner, so I'm not entirely certain what to do for this, but this will likely not be the last question we get that qualifies for this category.
Ideas on how to handle this?
