I'm Dr. Andrew Jones, and I have practiced Veterinary Medicine for over a decade.
Over the past 17 years I have treated thousands of pets for a variety of problems,
and currently own the Nelson Animal Hospital in Nelson BC, Canada.
Most pet owners do not know how to perform CPR, let alone basic first aid for their pet. However every dog and cat owner should know how to provide basic medical care, because during an emergency, you can't always get to a Vet in time. Frequently, even the most loving and responsible pet owners face the trauma of caring for a pet who is bitten by another animal, who has swallowed a dangerous object, has eaten something poisonous, or has been hit by a car.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Do you know what to do if your pet is choking?
- If your pet is hit by a car... what steps would you take?
- What would you do if your pet stops breathing?
- Your pet is bleeding... how do you stop it?
- If your pet has hypothermia - what must you do right now?
- What should you do if your pet has broken their leg?
- Your pet is suffering from shock - what must you do to ensure their safety
on the way to the emergency vet?
- Your pet is bitten by a poisonous snake or spider - what should you do?
Do you know the answers to these questions?
If you know what to do in any emergency situation, it can mean the difference between Life and death. Our intention is not to scare you, but pet first aid education can go a long way. Accidents, seizures and emergency medical situations happen every day. As a responsible pet owner, you should know what to do in the event that your pet is in need of emergency care.
The purpose of Pet First Aid is the same as with us humans; to ensure, as much as we can, that our patient (our pet!) is taken care of as quickly as possible, so that when we arrive at the emergency vet, our pet has the highest possible chance of survival. This is where my book can help you...
