April is Pet First Aid Awareness Month
Your dog ate the bag of chocolate chips that was left out on the kitchen counter? Or your pooch fell down the stairs and started limping?
Knowing basic first aid procedures is a really helpful way to avoid the feelings of panic that may accompany these situations. Knowing how to handle pet emergencies and accidents means that an emergency situation can be handled much faster and more appropriately.
According to the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), 25 percent more pets would survive if just one pet first aid technique were applied prior to getting emergency veterinary care.
Check out this handy checklist that tells you all the supplies you should have on hand for pet first aid. At Pawz, we always have this first-aid kit on hand that you can buy online.
Emergency treatment and first aid for pets should never be used as a substitute for veterinary care, but it may save your pet’s life before you can get your pet to a veterinarian. Be sure to read through these basic procedures and print out a copy to keep with your pet emergency kit.

“Our dog Ferris has really enjoyed his walks and play times with the staff from Pawz. They are always friendly and happy to take Ferris and are always
easy to communicate with about questions or concerns. Pawz staff are so friendly, very reliable and professional! Thank you for everything!”

“Our three dogs had a little vacation when Martina sat them. You know and love your work, and we can see that. Every morning, I received SMSes and MMSes,
and more photos through email, about how the boys were doing and what they were up to. I’m a very anxious owner, and it took me a long time to be
able to entrust my doggies into someone else’s care. Thanks to Pawz, I can actually go on a holiday and not be worried about my boys. And they are
so well-priced for the quality of service they provide. Thanks, Martina!” – Iveta, V.
"When things get especially busy for us, it's great to have this kind of service in our area. We especially appreciate the ability to make
a last-minute request if something comes up. Our dog Tilly always looks forward to seeing any of the team members from Pawz!"
– Bob, D.
"I'm very happy with the service provided by Pawz. My dog Frankie loves her walkers. They are also very accommodating, as our schedule
changes often and I feel at ease during my work day knowing my dog is being well taken care of."
– Dominique, R.
“Reliable and professional. Everything works as agreed on at 200%. I really appreciate the updates about each walk. You obviously enjoy what you do,
and my dog is very happy!”
