first aid is not
meant to replace vet care.
learning pet first aid and cpr may just help you save the life or your pet. i took a dog cpr/first aid class a couple of weeks ago and i wanted to share some of what i learned with everyone here. the red cross has a website too so if you want more info or want to check for a class in your area check out www.redcross.com
i found the class to be very worthwhile and i learned a lot.
first this link gives a really good list of all the things that you should keep int a kit Making a First Aid Kit for Your Dog
there are only a couple of things i would add to this list and they are:
-a supply of any special medications you already know that your pet will need
-you may want an e-collar that you know fits your pet(the cone head thing, not a shock collar
-a list of all your dogs current vaccinations...and proof(you will often need these if there is an emergency and you need to have your dog boarded somewhere-most emergency shelters do not allow pets
-i also recommend buying a muzzle rather than the kind you make (just my preference from experience, my dog was still able to nip me with the homemade on on
-the site lists benedryl, some dogs don't do very well on benedryl...check with your vet before adding it too your kit
the other really important thing i learned was to figure out what is normal for my dog before i was faced with an emergency. you should learn how to take your dog's temperature, check for a pulse and what is normal for both. you should also learn how to check your dogs mouth and lips (or eye lids if these are too dark...) for signs of shock...and again, what is normal for your dog. i would guess that your veterinarian could help you with this stuff during your dog's next exam.
it is also really important that you crate train your dog. there was a recent natural disaster type situation in my area and a lot of people had to be evacuated. in that type of high stress emergency situation...what will you do with your dog? a lot of dogs suffered more injuries and more stress because they hadn't been crate trained.
