Pet First Aid - The Basics

Bleeding, seizures, broken bones, heatstroke, choking, you have a plan?

Emergency care for pets requires veterinary attention, but your quick thinking and immediate help may save your pet’s life. Do you know the basics of pet first aid?

The American Veterinary Medical Association has an informative link on the basics: Pet First Aid – Basic Procedures. This “how-to” for pet emergency care is not to be used as a substitute for veterinary care, but is a helpful first step.

If your dog or cat may have been poisoned, the Animal Poison Control Center is a great wealth of information as well.
