Is there an animal doctor in the house? When an accident or other emergency threatens your pet, every minute counts. Don't be unprepared! 

Download the updated audiobook of The First-Aid Companion for Dogs and Cats by Amy Shojai for hands-free emergency veterinary advice on your device - whenever and wherever needed! You’ll learn:

  • Which over-the-counter human medications can help - or harm - your dog or cat
  • What to keep in your pet's medicine chest (many essential items are probably in your house already) 
  • Basic first-aid techniques, such as cleaning a wound, making a splint, and updated CPR advice - step-by-step!
  • Fear free handling techniques to keep you safe and reduce your pet’s stress
  • How to quickly pinpoint what's wrong with your pet, using the First-Aid Symptom Finder

Plus, you'll discover a comprehensive A-to-Z guide to more than 150 common - and not-so-common - injuries and conditions, including:

  • Abscesses (Chapter 11)
  • Bites from Animals (Chapter 19)
  • Car Accidents (Chapter 26)
  • Choking (Chapter 131)
  • Gunshot Wounds (Chapter 59)
  • Heatstroke (Chapter 63)
  • Hot Spots (Chapter 65)
  • Jellyfish Stings (Chapter 72)
  • Poisoning, including grape/raisin and xylitol toxicity (Chapter 88)
  • Snakebites (Chapter 100)

Each easy-listening entry tells you when to call the vet, which supplies or medications you'll need, what immediate action you should take, and what you should do as follow-up care.
