April is Pet First Aid Awareness Month — a month dedicated to raising awareness about keeping our fur kids safe. (Downloadable my FREE Poster Set, “How to Save a Choking Pet” here: Free Red and Howling Posters)
Because choking cuts off oxygen to the brain, you only have a few minutes to save a life. If your pet is choking, most likely, there won’t be time to drive to the vet. Taking a few minutes to watch this video could save your pet’s life!
PLEASE SHARE this video with friends and family who have pets, as well as with pet sitters and anyone else with pets in their lives. Pets can choke on everything from toys to rawhide to string, and the consequences can be deadly. Choking occurs when a foreign object lodges in the throat or windpipe, blocking the flow of air. In this video, I’ve not only put together step-by-step instructions on how to save a choking pet, but I’ve also included common choking hazards, things to watch out for, and helpful tips to help keep your pets safe! xoAmy
