Now that Spring/Summer is here - so are snakes! While walking my lab, I almost stepped on a snake basking in the sun. Keeping this in mind, I thought I share two links about Pet First Aid with you.
The first is the Pet First Aid Guide from AVMA. This handy pdf has tips and checklists to help keep your dog safe.
Another source of great info is from our friends at FluentWoof: First Aid for Dogs - Preparing for the Unexpected. This is a short article that provides what to do when a dog is choking (for example), along with videos that explain How to Tell if Your Dog Has Shock and Performing Dog Heimlich - all from Dr. Libby Guise, DVM.
