Dog First Aid:
Just like babies, our dogs cannot talk to us and tell us what is wrong or where it hurts. But, unlike humans, their symptoms and responses to emergency situations may be different than we are used to. It is up to us to be able to read the signs and know how to take charge.
You can’t do your dog any good in an emergency if you are running around, confused and panic-stricken, because you don’t know what to do. Or, worse yet, if your lack of knowledge prevents you from even realizing that there is an emergency taking place. Unfortunately, such situations could cause your dog his life.
Please check out the "Quick Links" below and brush up on some dog first aid basics. After all, the life you save will be your best friend’s.
