First Aid Awareness Is Not Always Emergent While we’re getting further along in the month of Pet First Aid Awareness I want to take a detour from just sharing stories of first aid issues to discussing an often overlooked form of preventing first aid issues.

Pet First Aid Awareness Month – Ear Wounds

Ears Are Big Bleeders Ears are big bleeders even when there is such a seemingly small wound. I have had the roof of my car blood splattered thanks to these floppy appendages – you would have thought someone got stabbed but it was just from a tiny Pug’s cut ear!

Foot Problems Are Common I would say broken toenails or foot issues in general are probably the 2nd most common issue that we as dog walkers commonly …
