April is Pet First Aid Awareness Month! Are you prepared?
The PetSaver (tm) program is designed to teach you the basic skills necessary in case of an emergency for your pet.
“An important part of being a caring, conscientious, responsible and loving pet owner is knowing the life saving skills of pet first aid and care.”, stated Mrs. Goff. The eight-hour class includes the skills and information necessary to prepare the pet owner in the unfortunate event of a medical emergency involving their pet. Some of the topics highlighted in the class include: CPR, Rescue Breathing, Shock Management, Bleeding Protocols, Injury and Wellness Assessments, Heat Injuries, Cold Injuries and Pet Care.
“Doggie” or “Kitty” breath is not normal and is usually a sign of poor oral hygiene that should be addressed promptly. The PetSaver program teaches pet owners the many aspects of caring for their pet’s teeth. Pet owners will learn how to properly brush their pet’s teeth. Pet owners will learn how to properly brush their pet’s teeth, choose safe toys and healthy food snacks and work with their veterinarian to assure good dental health.
On the average, pets (dogs and cats) seven years and older are considered senior “pet-izens”
The next PetSaver class is scheduled for April 23, 2011 at The Samaritan Inn Administrative offices located at 1725 N. McDonald St., McKinney, TX 75071. The Samaritan Inn is Collin County’s only homeless program that helps willing people regain their independence through counseling, case management and self help classes. Many men, women and families who experience a homeless situation and have a pet will choose to remain on the street, living in their cars or under bridges. To resolve this situation, The Samaritan Inn is now providing a climate controlled kennel area for these pets; because being homeless shouldn’t mean you have to lose everything. Mrs. Goff will be donating a portion of the tuition from the PetSaver the Inn and will also be collecting donations to help support the program. For more information about the Inn, visit www.thesamaritaninn.org.
