This is MyHusky’s very first competition. Enter to win 1 of 2 canine first aid kits, so you will be more prepared if something happens to your dog. Read on for details on how to win.
How many people out there would know what to do if their dog was injured by another dog? Or bitten by a spider perhaps? Well we do now 🙂
On Saturday we attended Dogcity Daycare’s First Aid seminar and learnt how to wrap injured limbs, perform CPR, remove bee stings and all sorts of useful things that eventually pop up in a dog’s life.
Dr Mark Reeve from the Tea Tree Gully Veterinary Hospital presented the seminar and did a great job fielding all of the questions.
We also learnt what things should be included in a canine first aid kit;
- Plastic gloves
- Non-adhesive dressing
- Padding dressing
- Guaze swabs
- Conforming bandage
- Adhesive tape
- Saline flush
- Water based lubricant
- Antiseptic (but not Dettol)
In celebration of our newly discovered skill for making dog first aid kits we are giving away 2 dog first aid kits to a couple of lucky readers. Hopefully you’d never need to use them, but it’s better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.
Just leave a comment below to be in the running. I’ll contact two random commenters in a week to let you know you’ve won and get contact details.
This competition is for Australian residents only. Some of the things inside the first aid kits may have some issues with customs, it’s just easier 😛
