7 BEGINNER’S TIPS ON DOGGIE FIRST AID As a dog owner, you should really consider teaching yourself doggie first aid. With the proper training and techniques you may be able to save your dog’s life one day. by Alicia Breckenridge You love your dog. Your dog is like a member of the family! But do you know what to do if there is an emergency and your dog needs immediate help? If not, you need to change that as soon as you can! The following is doggie first aid information that you can use to help your dog if your dog becomes sick or injured. HOW TO CHECK YOUR DOG’S PULSE 1 To check your doggie’s pulse you need to locate the femoral artery, located under the skin on the inside of the leg, between the two large muscles found where the leg meets the body. With the dog standing, place your hand in front of the rear leg where it meets the body and slide your fingers into the space between the leg and groin area. You will feel the artery pulse when the heart beats. Once you have found the artery when the dog is standing, try again with the dog in a sidelying position. Count the pulses in 15 seconds and multiply by four to find the number of beats per minute. Familiarize yourself with the pulse rate of your dog, how it feels when they are calm and relaxed and also how it feels after any type of exercise. Normally, a dog’s pulse will fall somewhere between 70 and 120 beats per minute. A puppy could have a pulse rate anywhere between 120 to 160 beats per minute. PERFORMING A CAPILLARY REFILL TEST 2 Lift the dog’s lip and check the color of their gums above their canine tooth. The gums should be pink. When you press on them, they should turn white for a moment and then go back to pink. This is known as a capillary refill test. If they are blue in color, your dog is lacking oxygen.
