“Reminding viewers that the steps taken during the first few minutes following an injury can make a big difference, Pet Emergency First Aid—Dogs provides detailed examples of first aid techniques designed to be used on dogs before they receive professional care. From adding veterinarians to your cell phone contacts to keeping handy first aid kits at home and in the car (with gauze, dressings, ointment, scissors, and more), the program serves up numerous tips along with dramatic scenarios coupled with instructions for handling injuries and situations including choking, fractures, bites and stings, electric shock, seizures, and ear, heart, or foot problems, among others (such as gunshot wounds).
