Love Dogs... Love Nature

Love your pet... Dog First Aid Talk

First Aid evening packed with people - and potentially life-saving information

Karen from Hillside Vets gave a brilliant talk covering all the important aspects of dog first aid, including how to deliver CPR, tips on how to construct a makeshift stretcher or fashion a splint and what to do in cases of poisoning, drowning, dog bites, heat stroke or hypothermia - and so much more.

Hillside offer Dog First Aid kits for sale at their Corfe Mullen surgery and notes from the talk can also be picked up from there.  They also offer yellow ribbons which are part of the Yellow Dog Scheme, this increasingly well-known scheme was also discussed at the evening.

Hillside's First Aid talk was hosted by Dorset Dogs, with the venue supplied by the Urban Heaths Partnership.  Every place at the event was booked and following the popularity and positive feedback about how useful and interesting it was another is being planned for in a few months time - keep an eye on the website and Facebook for details.
