This was a very informative, and open forum disscussion event, that I found very interesting.
The topics discussed were on:
Bandaging/First Aide: for those scrapes and cuts that always happen on a weekend how to react to them and treat them. We had a very patient collie volunteer that allowed for a demenstration.
Heat stress- sign and symptems and what to do if you notice these symptoms
Fleas/Tics/Mosquitoes/Porcupine quills- how to deal with them if you find them on your dog. Preventative medicines for these pests, which ones are safe if you also have a cat. NOTE: walmart, drug storre brands are not recomended as they get in the blood stream and usually cause negative effects.
Important note with Porcupine quills- Do NOT remove or shorten them get your dog to the vet for proper removal.
Swimming/"Limber Tail"/Ear Infections- I had no idea what "limber tail" was, basically its when they have overexerted their tail muscles like a pulled muscle (usually if they have been swimming alot), and have to take it easy and not move around much for a couple of days to recover. Rest to recover!
Toxicities/Poisoning- many human foods and 99% of human meds are toxic to animals always check with your vet before giving your pet any medicine.
Poison Emergency Call 888-426-4435 there could be a $65 consultation fee that will be billed to your credit card. If you think that your pet may have ingested a poetentially poisoness substance $65 could save his/her life. Open 24hrs/365 days a year.
Alergic reactions outside/Benadryl
Cat bite abcesses- if you are ever bit by a cat seek medical attention ASAP, no matter what cat it is.
A very helpful website where you can find alot of this information on the above topics and much, much more is Veterinarypartner.com.
I will post the handouts we received, on the information board in the Clubhouse!
I hope to see more members out next year as this is an annual event!!
