C.P.R. Class

Friday, I attended a C.P.R. (CardioPulmonary Resuscitation) class for dogs and cats, at A Rejoyceful Animal Rescue near me in Mount Clemens, Michigan.  Met my friend BG there, and she brought along her friend A, too.

Have wanted to take a CPR or pet First Aid class since forever...!  I learned that you've got to keep your cool, and make sure someone has called an animal emergency veterinarian, so they are ready when you arrive, and may be able to give you advice while you are giving CPR.

On that note, I realized that I have all of the cats' medical and veterinary information stowed where I can find it, but if there was an emergency, The Hubby or someone else would have no clue whom to contact!  So the first thing that I did today, was make a cheat-sheet of phone numbers, addresses and hours to hang on the refrigerator.  It lists the nearest emergency vet office, and Chuck's and Angel's vets.  The thought of something happening, and while I'm in a panic, or away at the office, looking through my phone contacts for vet information...just fills me with dread.

So, folks...make sure you have your veterinarian's information available to your household! Please consider attending a pet First Aid or CPR class, since I know you all LOVE your furry friends and would do anything to help them.  It's not that a class will make you a super-hero, but if some of the knowledge helps out one day, then it's A GOOD THING! πŸ’•πŸ˜ΈπŸ˜ΈπŸ˜ΈπŸ’•
