April is National Pet First Aid Awareness Month. If you have a dog or a cat, you need to take a course in Pet First Aid. You would be amazed at the many things that can happen to your "fur baby" but if you know First Aid, it can possibly save their life. Things like choking, bee stings, heat stroke, a broken limb, a bite from another animal, etc. are all possibilities, especially as the weather improves and we spend more time outside with our pets.
Even indoor cats can run into problems such as choking, cat fights, a fall etc. so they should be considered as well.
Most humane societies and certainly the Red Cross offer Pet First Aid classes in communities across the country.
Make it your business to go online and find out when the next available class is in your area, and then register.
