It goes without saying that having a few useful first-aid tricks on hand can save lives. In fact, most schools have begun instructing students on how to correctly interpret symptoms and administer first aid when necessary. Your pet is a valued member of your family as well, so knowing the right first-aid procedures to use in an emergency can be very helpful.

Peak surgicals recommend 5 tips for pet owners to keep in mind the next time they give first aid.

  • Take Precautions

Animals that have been hurt will often be in great pain, and occasionally they will bite people trying to help them. Animals want to shield themselves from further suffering because this is a natural occurrence. If your pet is experiencing severe pain, you should only approach him while wearing safety gloves. Cover up as much as you can and avoid showing skin.

  • Contact a veterinarian

During an emergency, it doesn't matter if you know how to care for a pet or not. You should contact the veterinarian as soon as possible. Use the first-aid skills you have learned to treat the patient.

  • Have a Kit on Hand

Avoid leaving bandages and medications lying around in various rooms of the house. Create a first aid kit and stock it with all the necessary supplies. Bandages, surgical sticky tape, cotton, non-adhesive absorbent dressing, blunt scissors, and some antiseptics should all be included in the pack.

  • Recognize the Category of Injury

You should be on the lookout for symptoms and indicators of sickness because not all injuries are necessarily physical injuries. For instance, if your pet is restless and wailing but has no visible injuries, the issue is internal and a vet should be consulted. The same is true if you notice your pet vomiting—this indicates that he has ingested something harmful.

  • Understand the Situation You're in

Pets with various injuries receive a variety of first aid treatments. For instance, burns should be cleaned with cold water first, followed by the use of a bandage soaked in saline. Apply a bandage to cuts and bruises, and if excessive bleeding occurs, add another layer of bandage on top of the first. Call the veterinarian right away.

Because accidents can happen at any time and it's best to be prepared, every pet owner should be how to administer first aid in an emergency. Follow the advice and keep a first aid kit handy.

Finally, keep in mind that dog first aid is meant to stabilize the animal until appropriate veterinary care can be delivered; it is not meant to replace veterinary care. Your dog should receive quick veterinary care after any first aid treatment, either from your normal veterinarian or from your neighborhood animal emergency clinic. Be careful!
