Emergency First Aid for Pets - Every responsible pet owner should understand at least the basics of emergency first aid and know how to apply them quickly and effectively.


Accidents can happen anywhere, at anytime, and being able to apply basic first aid procedures following a serious accident can often mean the difference between life and death for many pets.

In this section we review aspects of emergency first aid for both cats and dogs. Specific subjects considered include amongst others electric shock, artificial respiration procedures, road traffic accidents, bone fractures, snake bites, rat bites, other animal bites, general accidents, severe bleeding etc. First aid for other accidents is covered elsewhere on our website and can be found using the following links:
