Pet First Aid

Pet emergencies can occur with little or no warning. Trauma, accidental ingestion of poison or foreign object, and sudden illness can all be classified as an emergency situation. It is important for pet owners to know how to recognize an emergency. Our classes include a workbook 5 participants minimum. We have pet manikins and a one of a kind choking dog manikin. Cost is $50.00 per person 2 hour class time hands on expierence.

Some emergencies are not as easy to recognize. Pets that are hit by cars, lacerations (cuts)
burns, electrical shock, falls and other related trauma are common emergency situations. In
situations like these, prompt veterinary care is essential.

Other emergencies are not as easy to recognize. The following is a guide to help pet owners
to recognize emergencies which may not be as obvious.

If your pet is exhibiting any of the following, he/she will need veterinary care.

  • eye injury
  • vomiting
  • accidental indigestion of toxic agent
  • diarrhea with blood
  • accidental indigestion of foreign objects
  • lameness (limping)
  • refusal to eat
  • inability to walk
  • refusal to drink
  • cough

Do not hesitate to call Animal Poison Control (1-888-426-4435) if you even think your pet might have ingested a substance toxic to pets.
