Having a pet first aid kit is always good to have handy. It does not have to be fancy; a human first aid kit will usually work in a pinch. We highly recommend a first aid kit to anyone who takes their dog(s) out a lot to parks, competition events, adoption events or long walks. Having the supplies to dress small wounds or help stabilize a pet for the trip to the vet can save a life.
A big thank you to Dechra Veterinary Products. For you large donation of Animax antibiotic ointment. This is a great donation for us and will definitely help our K9 officers when they get minor wounds when hunting through woods, fields, or abandoned buildings.
We had a great time at the Lake County Sheriff Department where we trained 24 officers from five different agencies. Twenty four kits where given out.
We just received a large donation from Virbac Thank You. Dehydration is a very common problem with working dogs in the summer. This addition to our first aid kits will give handlers another tool to help their partners in the field.
Lake Hills Volunteer Fire Department does boot drive to raise money for Kits for K9's Yesterday Volunteer fireman and K9 handler for St John police department visited Dr. Lisa Booth at Vale Park Animal Hospital to deliver a donation. The fire department volunteers at attended the CPR seminar put on by Dr Booth.
I want to thank you for saving my dog's life. I attended your Pet CPR and First Aid class at Vohne Liche Kennels back in 2013. The way you taught the class - your passion - made learning fun and helped me remember what you were teaching us.
The Lake Hills Fire Department has another tool to help rescue pets, thanks to the donation of a pet oxygen mask. The donation of the mask was made by Invisible Fence of Northwest Indiana, the first donation the company has made to local fire departments.
Working dogs just don't know when to stop working. We have seen many cases of dehydration from all levels of handlers it happens. Thank You to NaturVet for donating Oral electrolyte solution, another great product we can now include in our first aid kits.
Any working dogs can develop paw issues they are working on concrete, asphalt or running thru who knows what to catch criminals. We knew Mushers Secret was developed for sled dogs to protect their paws, but we found that it helps all working dogs.
