Doggy First Aid - Poisons
Hi Everypawdy, Lexi here.
Beau and I would like to share some of the new knowledge that our hoomins has on doggy first-aid that they did learn at the seminar last night – seminar is a big word for “night out without us but with all the doggy friends”!!
The first, and we thinks most impawtant, thing we want to share is about poisonous things. There is many websites available that discuss this topic, but still there are lots of hoomins who aren’t sure, or don’t even realise that there is lots of everyday items that are toxic to us dogs.
See we dogs rely on our hoomins to take care of us as we don't always know that things are dangerous and bad for us. If something sniffs good we is gonna taste it, an if it tastes good well we gonna eat or drink it – you has to be the ones to keeps us out of temptation!! So here is some things that we has learnt....
