HOW TO HANDLE AN INJURED PET
Injured animals must always be approached with extreme caution. Even though your pet may normally be very docile and friendly, when they are hurt, they are most likely scared and nervous and will bite or scratch.
Approach the animal slowly and cautiously, and speak in a quiet and calm voice.
Before taking any action, STOP and do a quick assessment:
Be sure you are not putting yourself into a dangerous situation – check the area for other animals, cars, etc.
Listen to your pet to see if he or she is breathing or making any unusual sounds. You may want to put your hand near the animal’s mouth to see if he or she is breathing.
ALWAYS apply a muzzle and use caution as even the nicest animal can bite when in pain. Once a muzzle has been applied, evaluate your pet for injuries.
Have your pet evaluated by our emergency veterinarian in Palm Beach Gardens as soon as possible. Attempt to keep your pet calm and warm as you transport he or she to the vet. Use a flat board, cardboard box, or large blanket as a stretcher if the animal is unable to stand or walk.
