How To Handle Your Injured Pet
It is possible that your pet can act aggressively when they’ve been injured. It’s important to be careful how you handle them for their safety and your own.
- Be calm and go slow when approaching.
- If your dog appears aggressive, get someone to help you.
- Fashion a makeshift stretcher and carefully lift your dog onto it.
- Support their neck and back as you move them in case of spinal injuries.
- Cover your cats head gently with a towel, to prevent them from biting you.
- Very carefully, lift your cat into its carrier or a box.
- Support their neck and back as you move them in case of spinal injuries.
First Aid Treatment At Home
Depending on the situation, there are some actions you can take at home to stabalize your pet before transporting them to an emergency vet.
- If your pet is bleeding externally due to a trauma, apply pressure to the wound quickly and hold it there.
- If possible, elevate the injury.
- If your pet is choking on a foreign object, put your fingers in their mouth and try to remove the blockage.
- If you’re unable to remove the blockage, perform a modified version of the Heimlich manouver by giving a sharp blow to their chest.
- If your pet is unconcious and unresponsive, you may need to perform CPR.
- First, check if your pet is breathing and if they have a heartbeat. If you cannot find either, start chest compressions.
- Perform 30 chest compressions followed by two rescue breaths. Repeat this until your pet starts breathing on their own again.
- To give a rescue breath, close your pets mouth and extend their neck to open the airway. Place your mouth over your pets nose and exhale until you see your pets chest rise.
- Check for a heartbeat every 2 minutes.
- Continue giving your pet CPR until you reach an emergency vet.
