First aid for your dog… something many of us don’t think about until faced with a problem.
Feeling strongly about the importance of this topic, the Bright Spot Therapy Dogs Board of Directors asked Steven M. Ellis, DVM, to be the keynote speaker for our first annual Bright Spot Volunteer Appreciation Event. Those attending the event learned important information that could save their dog’s life. During his talk, Dr. Ellis suggested the following book as a good reference to have on hand: The First Aid Companion for Dogs & Cats by Amy D. Shojai. Highlights of the book include: over 150 everyday accidents and emergencies, essential medicine chest, how to prevent accidents, and illustrated clinically proven techniques.
I went right home and ordered a copy of this book and feel better knowing that I have it on hand to refer to in an emergency.
