Dog First Aid Course
14th June 2015, Oadby.
Why learn first aid for your dog?
Those vital moments prior to getting to a vet can save your dogs life.
The correct course of action taken immediately after your dog has been involved in an accident or suffered from sudden sickness can save its life.
Although accidents and events happen instantly and without warning, an illness may been present for some time but only discovered and suddenly become an emergency.
Dogs cannot communicate verbally and explain how they feel or what has happened to them. However they do have indications and signs that may reveal vital information that could help you to determine a course of action.
Is your Dog breathing?
Is its heart beating?
Is it bleeding?
Is its temperature normal?
Is it behaving abnormally?
Would you know what to do if your dog suddenly became ill or sustained injury?
Would you know how to administer first aid, including CPR on dog?
Can you treat a badly cut and bleeding paw?
If your dog is injured as a result of a fight, would you be confident enough to provide emergency first aid prior to taking the pet to your vet?
Should you move them and risk spinal injury?
