Hillside Vets are now stocking a first aid kit specifically designed for treating injured pets, after requests from several clients. These are small enough to go in a back-pack, through a belt or just to keep in the home or car and are invaluable for when the unexpected happens.
The packs include bandages for cuts or injured limbs, eyewash pods for removing grit from eyes or wounds, tweezers for removing splinters and a foil blanket to put over a pet in shock or suffering from hypothermia.
Hillside has also added a general first aid advice sheet to the packs and these can be purchased from the surgery at £11.41. Anyone wanting a copy of the first aid information sheet can obtain this from the surgery (free of charge but a donation to Dorset Search Dogs is welcome).
Hillside is proud to sponsor Dorset Search Dogs and have donated pet first aid kits to their members. DSD is a non-profit voluntary organisation assisting the Police, Coastguard and other Search & Rescue teams look for missing persons across the South.
