The second worst thing that can happen to your pet is for him to get sick or hurt; the truly worst thing is for you as the pet owner to be totally unprepared when accident or misfortune strikes. This book covers all the basics of first aid care for dogs and cats, from cuts and bee stings to convulsions, choking, and traumatic, life-threatening injuries. Steps to take in any given situation are laid out one at a time, and a number of very helpful illustrations make all of the information as direct and understandable as it can be. The book is arranged alphabetically by first aid topic, so you can always find the information you need quickly and easily. You really don't even have to read the book. Just having it close at hand when something happens to your pet can make a real difference; it can even help save your loyal companion's life. I would recommend reading the book, though, or at least glancing through it. You can learn important warning signs to watch for in your pet's behavior and help catch a problem in its early stages. In cases of real emergency, knowing what not to do can be just as important as knowing what you should do. You would do well to follow the precautionary suggestions the book describes--putting together a pet first aid kit, for example. By no means can or should this book take the place of professional veterinary care, a point which the text emphasizes, but it can help keep your pet healthy and happy.

This book is so helpful. I think every dog and cat owner should have one. It is so easy to use and can save yourself a lot of money in Vet visits if you're like me and worry about every little thing that might be wrong with your 'baby." I like the glossary and illustrations. I'm getting one as a Christmas gift for all the dog owners in my family. You can't beat it for $8.

Would you know what to do if your cat or dog had an emergency?
I worked on the book so I'm biased, but...
"Pet First Aid" may help save your pet's life!

From the American Red Cross, the nation's largest humanitarian organization, and The Humane Society of the United States, the nation's largest animal protection organization. All proceeds support the efforts of both non-profit organizations.

Makes a great gift for everyone you know that owns a cat or dog.

I couldn't agree more with the previous comment. I would only add that Dr. Bobbie Mammato, the author, conveys her wealth of experience in emergency veterinary care and public health, and makes this an extremely readable and useful text. In fact, why isn't Dr. Mammato credited as the author on your Web site

This book is a great help to me when my pets have any bumps or scratches. It is a wonderful source of first aid information that any pet lover should have.

If you own even just one animal this is a must have book to keep on hand. If you live in a rural area, away from your vet, ORDER this. I keep mine in hands reach in case of an emergency. It is easily understandable even for someone with no prior knowledge. (I worked several years as a Vet assistant). Great gift for someone as a housewarming gift, wedding present, or just because if they are animal lovers.

I got this book because I took the class at the American Red Cross and lost my copy but there is a better book that is wonderfully more detailed: The First Aid Companion for Cats & Dogs. The ARC book doesn't cover a lot of things but does cover quite a few. I did use it though for several years until I could find a better book. The instructions are easily understood and it is useful to have around. The ARC has a second edition book but it is terrible and this book is MUCH better! They should have stuck with their first book. We run a small dalmatian rescue and this book has come in handy quite a few times. We have bought several dog first aid books and this one is my second favorite.

This book is informative and easy to understand. My wife works as a pet advisor [...] and recommends it to all of her client. It is extraordinarily important that all pet owners have this book. It covers all emergency situations from insect stings to CPR to seizures.
