Boy you never know when this will be important. I am in the process of organizing a class for myself, my assistant manager (who is a cert. EMT) and community members who want to be informed better on pet first aid.
Most of what I know has been learned by reading and it has come in handy TWICE now.
Last night I had to do the heimlich on Rhumba. This is the second time I have had to do this with her. But last night...was more scary.
She and Lily have a tendancy to go down stairs with me when I do the laundry. I keep my dog food down there in storage containers that snap shut.
Well that is not enough to stop them.
They flipped the latch, helped themselves. Problem is the container is high, food is low and they have to choke themselves practically to get to the food.
On top of that they try to eat as much as they can get as fast as they can.
Roo choked. Got it stuck. I had to do try THREE times to lodge the food loose!
So it seems perfect timing to get this organized....
So I urge you to find a course if you can!! It can save your dog/cats life!
