First Aid for Dogs?

Is there a site for First Aid Treatment for dogs?

Like what to do when your dog is choking or has a cut etc?

My dog is fine btw. :D

I have a book "Dog Owner's Home Veterinary HandBook" by Giffin and Carlson. THey have a whole chapter in there on first aid. I've gone through a lot of home vet books and I think this one is the best. They sell it at chapters. It has all the diseases and a page of just symptoms so you can look up your symptoms before you go to the vet.

I also took a course through a local "continuing education" offering. Have you looked at those? Usually offered by local community centers and such. Just a thought.

heeler's rock!

Oakland Educational Services puts on a day and a half course where you can bring your dog and learn hands on. They're really great! I don't know if they go out your way, but try them out. I don't know their website, but just Google it and you'll find it I'm sure. :)
