First aid for pets is just that, first aid. It is provision of emergency treatment and life support to a pet that is ill or injured before professional veterinary help is available.
Basic knowledge of first aid for pets is critical for anyone with a furry family member. It is also a must for those responsible for other people’s pets. This includes boarding kennel and cattery staff, groomers, dog walkers and trainers, and others. Knowledge of pet first aid has the potential to alleviate pain and suffering, prevent further harm, and yep, it could save your pet’s life.
Knowing basic principles of first aid and having the right equipment at your fingertips will give you the peace of mind that you can act in a timely and appropriate manner if something goes wrong, and present your pet to the vet clinic with the best possible chance of a positive outcome.
