Pet First Aid Certification

 Since it had been a few years ago that I completed my Pet First Aid certification, I decided to take the course again to refresh my knowledge and skills. I attended the course presented at the San Diego Humane Society last Saturday. The course was designed by the American Red Cross and was full of excellent information on everything from evacuating pets in a disaster to treating snakebites, shocks, fractures, heatstroke, etc. We also learned how to recognize an emergency and how and when to do rescue breathing and CPR.

Is Your Dog Drinking Enough Water?

  There was a great article from WebMD.com this morning on making sure your dog is getting enough water to stay healthy. I thought I would share the information with you.
Even though the temperatures have dropped considerably from the summer, our canine pals still need plenty of water to stay hydrated. Dogs lose water through sweating through their paw pads and panting, as well as when they pee and poop. It only takes a loss of 10-15% of the water in their bodies for them to become severely dehydrated so it is essential that they are replacing that water.
