It's the last day of

National Pet First Aid Awareness Month!


April is Pet First Aid Awareness Month!

Let's celebrate Pet First Aid Awareness ALL YEAR!

Pet First Aid Awareness Month is the month that we focus on pet health, being able to keep our pets safe and knowing what to do in case of an accident or injury with your pets.

Knowing what “Normal” is for your pet will allow you to also know what is “Not Normal.
It is estimated that up to 60 percent of animal hospital visits are emergency in nature. Statistics show that preventable accidents are the leading cause of death among pre-senior dogs.
Common pet emergencies and injuries:
  • hit by car
  • falling out the back of a vehicle
  • snake bites
  • insect bites
  • burns
  • choking
  • drowning
  • heat stroke
  • heat exhaust
  • poisoning
  • foreign body ingestion
Being educated in pet first aid helps you to be able to stabilize your pet before transporting it to the veterinary clinic for further treatment. Proper stabilization, bandaging, and safe transport can all help with a better chance of recovery for your pet!
By taking a Pet CPR and First Aid Class, you will learn basic pet first aid including bandaging, temporary muzzling, what to do in case of heat stroke, drowning, snake bites, poisoning and more!

Okay, we all live in Arizona because the weather is almost perfect, the sun is almost always shining, the golf courses are luscious, there are multiple and beautiful wide open spaces and endless hiking trails! 

Surprisingly enough these are also places where some “not so delightful” inhabitants hang out in our state! You've heard the news this past week...... Snakes bites are on the rise!! Again! 
Here are a few simple tips to help keep you safe.

If you hike: 
 • Tap ahead of you with a walking stick before entering an area where you can't see your feet. Snakes will try to avoid you if given enough warning. • When hiking in an area known to have snakes, wear long pants and boots if possible
 • Consider purchasing a snake kit Avoid rock piles or tall green grass/bushes where snakes like to rest. 

About 150 people in Arizona are bitten every year. 
Some of Arizona’s rattlesnakes can also be lethal. 

Scottsdale is notorious for having snakebites and s…

National Adopt a dog month

National Adopt a dog month  And National Adopt a Shelter dog month

Are you thinking about adopting a dog? Has the thought crossed your mind in the past few months? If so, that's great! This is the perfect month for you to get down to business and do just that!

You might be looking simply for a companion, maybe a hiking pal, a friend for your grandparents or parents, how about an agility hopeful, or just a happy, warm face to welcome you home each day? Then this might just be the perfect timing!

Across the valley there are numerous places that you can choose from to adopt a dog. Many Shelters are full and have weekend discounts so they can open up space for new dogs. Unfortunately some will be placed on the E-List almost immediately due to its breed, temperament or health.

They were SCARED.
