Pet Tech CPR, First Aid, & Care For Your Pets

As a Health Care Aid I understand the importance of being prepared. That's why the team is trained in First Aid and CPR through ProTrainings Advanced Pet First Aid and CPR Level 3.

Here is a small list of topics each of our pet sitters and dog walkers have been thought

and trained in:

- Near and Secondary Drowning

- Lethargy

- Poisoning, Bites and Stings

- Breathing and respiratory problems including chocking
- Heat Stroke

- Pet/Dog CPR

- Broken Bones

- Taking a Pulse

- Taking a Temperature

- Urination Problems

- Pets and Fireworks and thunder

- Spinal injury and moving an injured pet

- Dressings, Bandages and Controlling Bleeding

SELECT HERE to see a completed list.

Here is a simple list that everyone who owns a pet should have in there home
1. Betadine solution for cleaning wounds

2. Buffered or coated aspirin for fever (consult vet) give 1/4 tablet of a 325 milligram tablet for every 10 pounds of weight , once or twice a day and unfortunately the only way to take a pets temperature is the old fashion way with a rectal thermometer. Be sure to purchase a thermometer that reads in seconds, NOT minutes.

3. Oatmeal dog shampoo for itching skin

4. Epson salt for cleaning wounds and / or soaking wounds on their paws

5. Hydrogen Peroxide to induce vomiting…but DO NOT DO THIS UNLESS YOU HAVE SPOKEN WITH YOUR VETERINARIAN first. Your veterinarian will inform you of the dose of hydrogen peroxide to give to your pet if he or she feels it is alright to induce vomiting…it is usually 1 tablespoon for every 15 to 20 pounds of weight

6. Over the counter hydrocortisone cream for treating minor itching or inflammation

7. Pepto Bismo for diarrhea which I have used and it works great…give 1 teaspoon for every 20 pounds of weight every 4 hours (consult vet)

8.  Canned pumpkin to relieve constipation…one teaspoon in the AM with food and one teaspoon in the P.M with food…I actually learned this trick from one of are clients

9. Simple saline solution to rinse the pets eyes

10.Triple antibiotic ointment or cream

11.Gauge to wrap a wound

When we took the Pet first aid course, ProTrainings recommended we all put together a first aid kit for our pets at home and also to keep one in our car in case we come across an injured pet.  Please call Your Veterinarian/Humane Society/Animal Control if you are afraid to approach an injured pet…they will bite you if in pain or scared. At Happy Paws Cayman we are certified in pet first aid and pet CPR certified and can help you in taking care of a sick pet or injured animal
