What to do if your pet is injured

We've compiled a simple list of first aid tips for animals to help you in case something happens to your pet.

Protecting pets from snakes

The best way to protect your pet from snakes is to discourage them from coming too near your house. Always walk your dog on a leash in bush areas or places prone to snakes.

Preventing and dealing with dog fights

You can often tell from the body-language of the dogs if they are being playful – angry dogs tend to be rigid and jerky, often with their hackles raised.

Pets and hot weather

If you suspect your dog or cat has overheated, immediately move them to a cool place and try to bring down their temperature. If possible place them in front of a fan and cover them with wet cloths.
