Joan Embery has served as a champion of environmental, conservation and preservation issues around the world, most notably as spokeswoman for the Zoological Society of San Diego. She appeared on “The Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson numerous times and one of the most memorable moments on the show was when a marmoset jumped on Carson’s head.
Recently, Embery spoke about “The Merck/Merial Manual For Pet Health: Home Edition” and how useful it has been in her own life while caring for her pets especially in emergenices.
Embery said, “If something goes wrong, the Manual doesnâ€™t replace a veterinarian, but it does offer insight as to what the problem might be, and perhaps what you can do while you wait for veterinary attention. Thereâ€™s also a chapter on emergency first aid. When youâ€™re evacuated, youâ€™re without the support system you otherwise might have and you never know what can happen.â€
