The First Aid Companion for Dogs & Cats

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 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 house already!)
* How to quickly pinpoint what's wrong with your pet, using the First-Aid Symptom Finder

Plus, you'll 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'll need, what immediate action you should take, and what you should do as follow-up care.

   Nothing I have been exposed to makes it easy, by layout and need
Undoubtedly one of the most informative and well-organized volumes of this type. Need more complicated, to a less urgent type of treatment, your vet would never reveal the items in this book to a patient's owner. The manual Merck for animals takes time and knowledge to be a safety in a pinch. Nothing that I have been exposed to makes it easy, in terms of layout and need. Dogs share pretty much even information between cats and cats. This is how the Navy writes their book for field work for military corpsman. Simple to obtain a degree, but made to save a life. If your head is in the wrong place, go to the veterinarian.

   The ultimate book of health for cat & dog owners.
Currently I am studying for a diploma with e-training fordogs and this book was a must for them. I found it extremmly useful and full of information i need to help, not just look after my own 3 dogs, but also manage boarding kennels in Cyprus. I first cover every aspect of animal care and i would recommend it to anyone who works with cats and dogs.

   Already Worth the Price!
Our kittens seemed to have hard stools and were distressed when it came to using the box for this purpose. I tried constipation to see what was suggested and we looked for the canned pumpkin solution. Happy cats and a simpler box use for them both.

   Missing pages - too late to return
I started reading this and came another half way through and found that three pages are missing. Of course, my unfortunate luck is that it is a day passed the return date. When you make your purchase, check it thoroughly.

   Of you don't have immediate access to a vet this book will not help you
Admittedly, I have lived for over 20 years with a vet no closer than 3 hour + 2 boat journeys away, and so my expectations of a first aid guide might be a little higher than ca!l your vet. My best example is the section on toad posioning... The book says to wash your dogs mouth with water... Oh and call your vet, over 20 years ago, I did just that. ... A vet 8 hours away... said wash the dogs mouth with milk and give them Benadryl... Magic... Dogseen better. If that does not work lemon juice on the tongue and honey on the gums. In 20 years, several dogs and an uncountable number of dogs have been rescued, none have seen a vet, all have recovered. This is first aid for the first world. If you're off the grid or Vet is any distance away. I wish I had not spent money on shipping or ordering this.

   Amazing book!!!
This book not only saved me money, but also saved my dogs'lives several times. I purchased copies for all my family with dogs. It is detailed and wide ranged from simple injuries to serious trauma situations if you are not able to get to a vet right away. I continue to purchase this for new pet owners in my life.

   Great book! A must have
It gives step by step instructions, meditations that dogs and cats can not have and lists signs and symptoms. Here there is a lot of basic stuff as well, but it is always good to review D, highly recommend this book to everyone who has a fur baby, whether you are a first timer or a seasoned veteran. I also recommend this book for my fellow animals - care professionals.
