Hello Animal Lovers! I hope the day never comes when your pet’s life is threatened! Are you prepared if your pet gets a serious wound, poisoned or stops breathing? Most pet owners/parents can handle a minor wound or illness. What do you do if you cannot get to the vet immediately? Remain calm is the first rule of thumb. I have researched the most informative and reliable information for myself and you. (I am not pet first aid certified) I choose to use holistic health care for my own pets.
It is a good idea to keep your pets veterinarian information with or near your pet first aid kit or in a place of easy access, which includes vets name and number and your pets shot record and any vital medical records or history.Animal Poison Control Center~best resource for any animal poison-related emergency, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If you think that your pet may have ingested a poisonous substance, call 888-462-4435. A $65 fee may be charged to your credit card.
I own and have read first aid and natural healing books for dogs and cats. As a visual person I like to see how things are performed or done, instead of only reading. I am certified to practice Reiki (Universal Energy), Japanese system of healing and relieving stress for people and animals.
The first video is about Pet First Aid by The DogSmith. Included: How to safely handle & transport your pet during an emergency, first aid kit, what is normal for your pet, snake bite, heat stroke, internal & external bleeding, poisoning, pet CPR. I would add Rescue Remedy to any pet first aid kit. Rescue Remedy is a flower essence remedy for stress, fear and shock.
