Product Description

Is there an animal doctor in the house?

Most likely, the answer is no. And when an accident or other emergency threatens your pet, every minute counts. Don’t be unprepared! Open The First-Aid Companion for Dogs and Cats by Amy D. Shojai and learn:

* Basic first-aid techniques, such as cleaning a wound, making a splint, and performing CPR– step by step!
* Which over-the-counter human medications can help– or harm– your dog or cat
* What to keep in your pet’s medicine chest (many essential items are probably in your home already!)
* How to quickly pinpoint what’s mistaken with your pet, the usage of the First-Aid Symptom Finder

Plus, you can discover a comprehensive A-to-Z guide to more than 150 common– and not-so-common– injuries and conditions, including:

* Abscesses (page 60)
* Bites from Animals (page 90)
* Car Accidents (page 117)
* Choking (page 131)
* Gunshot Wounds (page 224)
* Heatstroke (page 237)
* Hot Spots (page 245)
* Jellyfish Stings (page 269)
* Poisoning (page 311)
* Snakebites (page 350)

Each at-a-glance entry tells you when to call the vet, which supplies or medications you can need, what immediate action you should take, and what you should do as follow-up care.

By knowing what to do in an emergency and then acting quickly and optimistically to take the proper steps, you could save your pet’s life. The next time medical help is not quickly available, reach for The First-Aid Companion for Dogs and Cats. It’s a pet owner’s second best friend.

It’s every pet owner’s nightmare: suddenly your four-legged friend isn’t breathing. What to do? There’s no 911 for pets, so it’s up to you to save a life. The First Aid Companion for Dogs & Cats is a straightforward guide that covers both major problems–CPR, heat stroke, and strangulation–and minor ones, such as swollen tails, ingrown nails, and flea allergies. Beginning with simple tests and explanations of general care issues like dehydration examinations and triage, this guide then moves on to an alphabetical listing of every imaginable situation, from arrow wounds to worms.

The individual sections are good for both general reading and instant assistance. Each one starts with a notice of when to call the vet–immediately, the same day, or as needed. It also lists what items from your pet’s medicine chest will be needed, which may include anything from corn syrup to towels and panty hose. The information that follows this simple checklist is divided into “do this now,” “special situations,” “follow-up care,” and “the best approach.” Whenever necessary, simple sketches are included to help show proper technique, such as fashioning an instant muzzle from a pair of nylons, or how to cover a dog’s head in case of an ear-flap injury. Relying steadily on common household items like antihistamines, turkey basters, Gatorade, and plastic wrap, this guide assumes most of us won’t have special medical training or supplies and specializes in very specific and simple methods of helping your pet achieve the best imaginable care. Even more importantly, many suggestions are included on prevention of accidents–isn’t it easier to get that window screen repaired than to rush your kitty to the vet after a bad fall?–Jill Lightner
