  • Medical First Aid & CPR for Pets
    Pets bring love and joy into the lives of their owners. In exchange, most animal lovers want to provide their pets with the best care possible by giving them a home and taking care of their medical needs. Caring for a favorite cat or dog means more than regular visits to the vet, however. It also means knowing what to do when a pet is injured. In an emergency situation, it’s important to understand what it takes to stabilize and even resuscitate one’s pet until it can receive the professional care it needs. One can learn about providing first aid and CPR from training programs and software or by taking a course in person.

    A site I originated for one of my dogs when he went missing. Through extensive working and marketing efforts, we did get him back after 6 months. The site now houses pet tips, rescue information, and general resources and information to help if your pet is missing. There is no charge for access to any of the information and there’s nothing to sign up for. It’s all there to use, since if you’re pet is missing, you’ve got enough stress on your plate.
