Our beloved pets are family, and just like with any other family member, it’s important to be prepared if an emergency arises. Knowing what to do in the event of an emergency will help you provide the care your pet needs. Additionally, having the confidence to utilize proper first aid techniques will take you out of a place of panic and helplessness so you can properly assess an emergency situation and give the needed assistance to your pet.
