September is officially Pet Emergency Preparedness month but why not get a head start preparing to keep your pets safe and healthy in the event of an emergency.
Would you know what to do if your dog was choking, severely cut, or bite by snake?
Seconds and minutes matter.
It’s best to read and regularly refresh your first aid and CPR knowledge using a Dog or Cat First Aid Book, as well as attending a Dog First Aid Course every 1-2 years. Reach out to your local Red Cross or Rescue Organization to see if they offer or know of a nearby course opportunities.
Of course, in most parts of the world there is also potential for a variety of natural disasters: earthquakes, fires, tornado, floods, etc. Do you have a plan to evacuate with your pets?
