But have you ever thought, “What would I do if something happened to my dog, a cut, broken bone or was choking on a toy or treat?”
This would be a very scary and stressful situation, and although you are not a veterinarian you can take steps to ensure that you stay calm, and know what you can do to help your pet until you can get them to a veterinarian.
Pet First Aid is simply the immediate care you can provide for your dog when it has become ill or has injured itself. This first step can be extremely important and knowing what to do could make all the difference in your dog life and future health. By taking a Pet First Aid course you can prevent more damage if you dog hurts themselves, support your pet until you can get them to a veterinary clinic and know the signs of pain or illness in your dog so that they receive the help they need as soon as possible.
