First Aid For Animals
Is there an animal doctor in the house? Most likely, the answer is no. And when an accident or other emergency threatens your pet, every minute counts. Don't be unprepared! Open "The First-Aid Companion for Dogs and Cats" by Amy D. Shojai and learn: * Basic first-aid techniques, such as cleaning a wound, making a splint, and performing CPR-- step-by-step! * Which over-the-counter human medications can help-- or harm-- your dog or cat * What to keep in your pet's medicine chest (many essential items are probably in your house already!) * How to quickly pinpoint what's wrong with your pet, using the First-Aid Symptom Finder Plus, you'll discover a comprehensive A-to-Z guide to more than 150 common-- and not-so-common-- injuries and conditions, including: * Abscesses (page 60) * Bites from Animals (page 90) * Car Accidents (page 117) * Choking (page 131) * Gunshot Wounds (page 224) * Heatstroke (page 237) * Hot Spots (page 245) * Jellyfish Stings (page 269) * Poisoning (page 311) * Snakebites (page 350) Each at-a-glance entry tells you when to call the vet, which supplies or medications you'll need, what "immediate" action you should take, and what you should do as follow-up care.

As a result, injured animals in need of just simple life-saving treatment, die slow, agonising deaths.
