First Aid Awareness for Pets


WELCOME BACK GUYS. APRIL IS PET AWARENESS DAY. AND WE THOUGHT WHAT BETTER PLACE TO COME TO FIND OUT WHEN WE NEED TO KNOW AT HOME. YOU GUYS DO BOARDING HERE. YOU DO DAY CARE AND OF COURSE TEACH YOUR FRIENDS HOW TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR ANIMALS. WE ALL RECOMMEND THAT PEOPLE KEEP A PET FIRST AID KIT SUCH AS CLEAN GAUZE, AND ROLLS. SOME KIND OF CLEANING SOLUTION FOR WOUNDS. THERMOMETERS ARE ALSO GOOD TO KEEP. ICE PACK IN CASE YOUR PET SUFFERS FROM HEAT INJURY. WE ALL HAVE HUMAN FIRST AID KIDS AT HOME BUT SOMETIMES WE FORGET ABOUT OUR PETS. OUR PETS NEED FIRST AID KITS AS WELL. ANOTHER THING YOU AND I WERE TALKING ABOUT. A LOT OF TIMES PEOPLE END UP IN A SITUATION WHERE THEY HAVE TO LEAVE THEIR HOME QUICKLY. HAVING A BACKPACK READY TO GO WITH ALL OF YOUR PETS BELONGINGS IS IMPORTANT. YOU REALLY NEED TO PREPARE FOR YOUR PET TO BE EVACUATED AS WELL. SOME ESSENTIALS YOU NEED IS FOOD. ANY MEDICINES YOUR PET MAY TAKE. DON’T FORGET WATER BOWLS AND FRESH WATER AS WELL AND ALWAYS PACK A LEASH AND COLLAR. DON’T FORGET ABOUT THE ID TAGS. THAT MAKES THEM FOR MORE SECURE AND AT HOME. AND DON’T FORGET SOME CRATES. CRATES FOR SMALL DOGS. OR KITTY CATS LIKE YOU SEE HERE. AND ALSO DON’T FORGET THINGS LIKE CAT LITTER. SCOOPS AND WASTE BAGS FOR YOUR DOG. ALL OF THIS CAN BE KEPT IN A BACKPACK LIKE THIS OR IF YOU HAVE MULTIPLE PETS, IN A TUB. TALK ABOUT FIRST AID AWARENESS FOR YOUR PETS. YOU DO SPECIAL CLASSES NOT ONLY HERE BUT ON LOCATION AS WELL. I TEACH CPR CASES THESE ARE SOME OF THE OUR DEMO DOGS HERE. WE TEACH HOW TO GIVE CPR TO DOGS.
