April Is ‘Pet First Aid Awareness Month’

PETS ARE AN IMPORTANT PART OF MANY FAMILIES. AND APRIL IS PET FIRST AID AWARENESS MONTH. MAKING SURE YOU HAVE THE SKILLS TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR FURRY FAMILY MEMBER. WE HAVE DANA HUMPHREY. GOOD MORNING. TO DO WE HAVE HERE? THIS IS IRIS. SHE IS KNOWN ON INSTAGRAM AS “APPLE OF MY IRIS.” SHE IS VERY WELL-BEHAVED. SHE WANTS TO STAY SAFE THIS MONTH AS WELL. I AM SURE THAT SHE HAS HER OWN PET SAFETY KIT, FIRST-AID KIT. IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT. YOU CAN MAKE A DIY KIT AT HOME WITH SOME SIMPLE INGREDIENTS. SOMETHING GOOD TO HAVE ON HAND IS NEOSPORIN. THAT IS ALWAYS GOOD IN CASE — MAYBE YOUR DOG GETS INTO A TUSSLE AT THE DOG PARK WITH SOMEONE ELSE AND YOU CAN HAVE THAT HANDY. MAKE SURE ALSO — IF YOU ARE TRAVELING THIS SPRING, TO BRING YOUR SAFETY KITS ALONG FOR THE RIDE. ONE THING YOU CAN ALWAYS HAVE HANDY IS A NATURAL. IT IS GREAT TO KEEP THEM CALM. IF THEY GET INTO ANY FOODS THAT WILL CAUSE ALLERGIES, YOU CAN GET THAT TO THEM, TO CALM THEM DOWN. SOMETHING ELSE I LOVE IS PCR WHEEL. THAT IS ANTIVIRAL, ANTIFUNGAL AND ANTIBACTERIAL. IT IS REALLY GREAT BECAUSE PCR IS DRIED FROM HEMP. IT CALMS THE PET DOWN. IT CAN BE A TOPICAL SOLUTION AND IT CAN ALSO BE INGESTED. IF THEY GET INTO ANY FIGHT AT THE DOG PARK OR ANY PROBLEMS, YOU CAN TOPICALLY APPLY IT. IT IS TOTALLY SAFE AND THEY CANNOT OVERDOSE ON IT. SO I LOVE THAT. THAT COMES IN A DROPPER FORMULA. SPEAKING OF — FIGHT AT THE DOG PARK — WE HATE WHEN THAT HAPPENS BUT IT CAN HAPPEN. WHAT IS THE ADVICE — WHAT THINGS DO YOU NEED TO DO — WHEN IT HAPPENS WITH THE OTHER OWNER AND ALL OF THAT? YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE YOUR PET IS UP TO DATE ON PET RECORDS. PET INSURANCE IS A GREAT OPTION. BUT IF IT HAPPENS AND YOU ARE THERE, YOU WANT TO TRADE INFORMATION WITH THE OTHER PET OWNER. FOLLOW UP WITH A VISIT WITH THE VETERINARIAN. WHEN YOU FIND OUT THE RESULTS, LET THE OTHER PET OWNER NO. AND YOU CAN MAKE SURE EVERYONE IS SAFE AND THERE WERE NOT BE — WILL NOT BE FURTHER REPERCUSSIONS. AND WHAT ARE SOME THINGS YOU SHOULD NOT GIVE THEM? DEFINITELY KNOW IBUPROFEN, ALEVE, ADVIL — THAT IS NOT MADE FOR DOGS. IT IS MADE FOR HUMANS. ALSO NO RUBBING ALCOHOL OR HYDROGEN PEROXIDE. IT DOES NOT WORK WITH THEIR BODIES. YOU WANT TO STICK WITH THINGS THAT ARE MORE PET SAFE. AND WHO DO WE HAVE HERE? SUDDENLY A DOG APPEARED ON MY LAP. THIS IS HORRIBLE. HE IS A CHIHUAHUA. HE IS KNOWN ON INSTAGRAM UNDER “CANINE CLICK.” AND IF HE IS TRAVELING THIS SPRING, THIS IS A GREAT OPTION. IT IS THE COMMUTER CARRIER. JUST LIKE YOU HAVE A PLACE IN YOUR CAR FOR YOUR COFFEE CUP, YOU WANT TO HAVE A PLACE FOR YOUR PET SO THEY CAN TRAVEL SAFELY. WE WERE TAKING A TRAIN RIDE. WHEN HE GOES IN THERE, HE FALLS ASLEEP. HE WANTS TO GO IN AND MEET IRIS. YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF DOGGIE HEALTH INSURANCE. I GUESS YOU TRY TO DO IT WHEN THEY ARE YOUNG? THE YOUNGER, THE BETTER. BECAUSE IT WILL BE MORE AFFORDABLE. MAYBE $20 A MONTH VERSUS — IF YOU WAIT UNTIL THEY HAVE AN EXISTING CONDITION — JUST LIKE US, IT IS MORE EXPENSIVE. GET THEM STARTED YOUNG. THEN YOU PAY MONTHLY INSTEAD OF A HUGE CATASTROPHE AND THEN YOU HAVE A $5000 BILL AND YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO.
