First Aid for Dogs

I mean, this is First Aid for hoomans to assist us if something unfortunate should happen.

We attended this First Aid for Dogs hosted by Love My Human.

I was there to make sure things were moving along smoothly and no casualties.
What’s wrong with that dog? She looks quite … still.
Glad to see Mum taking notes …
I got hugs from Julie.
Goji decided to read about the course.
Staying’ Alive session!

During the break, Fred and I got to practice resuscitation –

But I was quickly distracted – there were more interesting things than a plastic dog.

Like lunch sandwiches.

And I almost got to some red velvet cupcake!!! But the hoomans caught me red-handed – with some evidence on my face.

But despite that I still got my certificate!

Thank you Heather for a most informative session.

Mum bought the First Aid kit for the just-in-case scenarios at home and the orange packet is for our travels – and that dreaded thermometer that goes up the bum!

May’s comment: Thank you Love My Human for making this possible.

Fab session! The instructor, Heather was brilliant. She touched on all the basic things we needed to know, the vital signs, what to look out for and how to handle situations.

We practiced resuscitation on a mannequin dog. In some instances it was helpful to have our dogs around to identify where best to feel their pulse, feeling their ribs and a few other things.

  1. Aw I love this! It’s so important that our humans know what to do if things go wrong isn’t it? It looks like you had lots of fun too.

    What a wonderful event! I must find one, or at least talk to our vet or the doggie day care to organize something like this!

  4. Jill Keiser

    Quite a nice number of hoomans got there certificates and are ready to help the doggie population, if needed. Good show!
