Burns | 60 Second First Aid

Sadly, it’s quite common
for dogs to get burned. They quite like to be near
us when we’re cooking, and around us generally. If your dog is burned,
it’s really important that you treat the area
under cool, running water, as quickly as possible. If it’s only a superficial burn, it’s vital that you do that fast. If it’s a more serious burn, they should always be seen by a vet as quickly as you possibly can. So, for more superficial burns, under cool running water for at least 10, and ideally a full 20 minutes,
under cool running water. If it’s a chemical burn, just ensure that there’s no
contra-indication to using water and run it, providing that’s the case, run it under cool running
water for at least 20 minutes. And, be careful of the runoff, so that it isn’t running
onto another part of the dog, or onto you. Never burst any blisters. Keep them warm, and the rest of them as dry as you possibly can. You’re cooling the burn
and not cooling the dog. And, always get them seen by a vet as quickly as you possibly can.
