Cedar Dog’s National Green Your Pet Month


Tech tipsComputer Tricks
Okay, you care about the earth and you are taking “greener” actions. Maybe you are recycling, composting household organic waste, you purchase products made of recycled materials or you began growing some of your own food. Are you aware of Cedar’s 5-point eco-agenda?
You care about your 4-leggeds; but then again do you know all of the Ways YOU impact their health? Knowing HOW YOU impact your pet’s health and What You Can Do about it is essential.
First, we teach a PETSAVER ™ EMERGENCY CPR, FIRST AID course. Included in that workshop is a “snout to tail” assessment. Responsible, loving pet parents should know their pet’s health. The learned skill is a monthly maintenance practice; you are looking for any injuries your pet has not presented to you and you are creating a base-line awareness of your pet’s health. Consider it wellness exercises, not unlike you do for yourself.
You will also learn other valuable hands-on skills; how to restrain and muzzle your pet, knowing that if your furry one is in pain or will be moved into pain, she can and will bite. How do you assess your pet’s vitals? If you already know what is standard for your pet you can act quickly if your pet is presenting something unusual. What about choking management?
Why is this important you ask? Let me explain. My Chesapeake Bay retriever brother Ernie (who is now 5 years and a couple of months old) has “set off” several huge learning curves in our family. In his early years his lack of “sense” was frightening; it seemed he always knew how to get attention while terrifying all of us. He has swallowed a number of objects, the worst of which (not just once but several times) were women’s knee high hose. We are not talking socks here, rather everyday sheer beige hosiery. For some bizarre reason, no matter how careful we were, he would “sniff them out” and after a good chew swallow them. After the first incident, we set on a path to know First Aid for Pets. While there are a number of other “rather frightening exploits” with Ernie and other pets in our care as pet sitters, suffice it to say, all have survived, including Ernie.
To be really clear; this class is in no way a substitute for emergency veterinary care; you do need to know how to respond in an emergency. In some areas more businesses and vet offices are offering 911 services for pets. Having said that, look into those services in advance, have your veterinarian contact info near-by and easy to find and make it your job to know what to do in a crisis. There is no substitute for know-how!
So the question is; are you prepared to act in an emergency for your best friend? According to the American Animal Hospital Association, 1 out of 4 pets would survive if just one pet first aid technique was applied prior to getting emergency veterinary care. Pets are members of the family, your best friends and your life long companions; you would do anything to help them, Right?
