Would you know what to do if a cut on your dog’s leg was bleeding badly or if your pet was having a seizure? Do you know what common household items and foods are toxic for your pet?

Hosted by AVC Community Practice veterinarian, Dr. Kathy Ling, this session will provide basic information on how to recognize and care for emergencies and injuries in dogs and cats. Topics will include primary assessment, handling an injured pet, bleeding, shock, common toxins, and recognizing signs of pain and distress.

"Basic First Aid for Your Pet" will take place on Tuesday, March 29, from 7:00–8:30 p.m. in Lecture Theatre A at the Atlantic Veterinary College. Admission is free, and everyone is welcome! For information, call (902) 566-0589, or visit upei.ca/avc.
