Are you a dog lover like I am? Since we use CPR and First Aid on a person experiencing cardiac distress or involved in an accident, can't we also use CPR and First Aid on our pets? Pet emergency education is becoming popular in many cities throughout the United States. Pets cannot talk so understanding the signs of a pet in distress is viable to their overall health. Check out pet CPR and First Aid classes in your local neighborhood or city and see if there are options available. Learning the sign and symptoms of a responsive pet as opposed to a non-responsive pet can make a world of difference. I don't know about you, but my animals are my family so ensuring that they are safe and healthy is the least that I can and will do. :) Check out the article and the link below.
