How to cope in an emergency

When the worst happens, you need to know what to do to help your dog survive. We can provide all the training and information you need to cope in an emergency.

Dalmatian Dog

Best chance of survival

Despite our best efforts to keep our beloved pets safe, accidents can happen. By learning CPR and emergency treatment for your pet, you can be sure that you know what to do in any situation and you can give your pet the best chance of survival until they can receive veterinary care. The principles of CPR on a pet are the same as for human treatment, and involves providing artificial respiration and chest compressions if there is no heartbeat.

Breed specific information and training

Obviously dogs come in all shapes and sizes, and it’s important to take this into account when providing treatment. For example, a chihuahua will need a much smaller amount of pressure when applying chest compressions than a larger dog. Some breeds are also more likely to suffer from breathing problems, such as flat-nosed breeds like a pug or a bulldog. When you sign up with us, we can provide you with breed specific information and training to provide the best care for your dog.

Inform the vet immediately

Be aware that your dog may bite you if they are frightened or in pain. If they seem to be having trouble breathing, try to remove any blockages in their mouth or throat. If they are bleeding, apply pressure to the wound, preferably with a sterile dressing – if this is unavailable, a towel or tea towel will do. Keeping the dog warm will help to reduce the symptoms of shock, and inform the vet immediately if urgent treatment is needed and you are bringing your pet to the surgery.
