April is National Pet First Aid month, and now is a good the time to prepare for any pet first aid actions you might need to take. There are a number of resources available on line but we like the Red Cross Pet First Aid app ($.99 for Apple or Android devices). It’s a useful tool that you can keep handy wherever you are. There are separate dog and cat sections where you can learn things like normal breathing rates, signs of allergic reactions and more. There are also locators for pet friendly hotels, vet hospital locator, quizzes and more!
Take a few minutes to do some pet first aid research now. It could save you precious time in the event of an emergency later!
