Tip of the Week

When a pet becomes injured it could be an scary experience both the pet and the owner.  Your first instinct might be to rush and grab the pet to begin administering first aid right away. This will not only frighten the pet but you might get bitten. An injured animal is usually very scared and has not idea what is going on and will bite out of fear.
You need you use extreme caution when touching and injured animal you can wrap your arms in think towels and use these as a defense for birds, cats and dogs. When applying first aid to a dog you can use a muzzle. If a muzzle is not available a leash or belt will work. Take the belt or leash and put one end through the other to make a loop and slip this over the dogs snout. This works great as a temporary muzzle. For the cats and birds use towels and cover your arms and their heads this will realx them enough so you my apply basic first aid for cuts and so forth.
