Fire Safety Days-Pet First Aid

Your NH and VT Emergency Hospital

Would you know what to do if your pet had an accident? What if you were walking in the woods and he stepped on a piece of glass and severed a major blood vessel? Or perhaps your kitten chews through an electrical cord while your watching your favorite television show. The medicine cabinet is a favorite crime scene for us pets, what if your cat eats your heart medication and you find him unconscious and not breathing? All of these are common scenarios that my dad and the staff at Small Animal Veterinary Emergency Services encounters everyday.
Lebanon Fire Department Fire Safety Day 2012
You can make the difference between your pet surviving an emergency or not. On Saturday, September 15, 2012 Small Animal Veterinary Emergency Services will join the Lebanon Fire Department "Fire Safety Day" to bring you a very important lecture on pet first aid. The event starts at 10am at the Lebanon High School right across the road from S.A.V.E.S. Dr. Kelly will be talking about life saving techniques to help the pet owner through the toughest of emergency situations at 11:30am. Learn resuscitation and basic CPR on S.A.V.E.S. very own training dog. Pick up a first aid kit for your cat or dog and learn how to apply a pressure bandage or prevent shock. 
Don't miss this opportunity for hands-on training and valuable life-saving techniques.
