Pet Health Insurance

Have you heard about pet health insurance to help cover veterinary costs?

Is this a good idea?

Insurance is an individual option and the availability of such plans depends on the state you live in and whether or not your veterinarian accepts pet health insurance.

Some hospitals offer their own individualized programs with prepayment for services.

These are known as wellness plans.

In either case, insurance or wellness plan, talk to your veterinarian to see what he or she supports and offers to clients.

Whichever you choose be sure that it covers the basics like vaccinations, annual heart worm check, annual fecal exam for internal parasites and a dental program.

Short First Aid Tips

Bloat If your dog's abdomen appears distended and full of gas, phone your vet immediately, and arrange for an immediate appointment

Transporting you dog in an emergency Gently slide your dog onto an old blanket or coat on the ground, dragging with the body first.

Two people can pick up the corners of the blanket to form a soft stretcher to transfer the dog to the back seat of the car.

The person walking backwards should go right through the car so the dog can be lowered gently onto the seat.

Someone should stay in the back with the dog on the way to the clinic.

If the dog is trying to bite, a necktie or bandage can be temporarily tied around his muzzle.

Do not leave it on for any prolonged period as this may compromise his breathing.

If the dog is panting, do not tie his muzzle closed.
