Have you ever had an emergency with your dog? Have they ever cut themselves? Been stung by a bee? Eaten something they shouldn’t? Would you know how to administer CPR to a dog? Or even how to check it’s pulse?
Would you know the signs of Alambama Rot? Seasonal Canine Illness? Giardia? And would you know what to do if your dog is displaying symptoms?
A good veterinary nurse or veterinary surgeon is worth their wieght in gold and can literally save your dogs life. However what you do before you get your dog to the vet can play a massive impact in this, and depending on the circumstances it may prevent a vet visit.

I’m sure many of you reading this are first aid trained in humans but have you ever thought about being canine first aid trained? Removing a bee sting may seem easy but do you know there is a specific way to do it so that the sting doesn’t go further into your dog’s system? Or do you know how to correctly move a dog that may be suffering a spinal injury? This may seem easy to answer if you have a Pug but what about if you have a Rottweiler?
I have collaborated with Mark at Anglia First Aid to offer my clients a level 2 Canine First Aid qualification with Protrainings.
