If you think your pet is having an emergency now, contact us immediately at 306-933-2677
Dogs can be very inquisitive and sometimes chase things or taste things that can be dangerous. We recommend that you are familiar with potential hazards and emergency situations before they arise so that you are prepared and able to prevent and/or react to your dog appropriately. Be mindful of things that your dog can find such as over-the-counter drugs/medication, toxic common household plants/flowers, mice and rat poisons, antifreeze and any foreign object/material that they may find and ingest. Visit the Animal Poison Control for more information if needed. It is best to keep anything that you do not want your dog to find in a safe place where they do not have access to.
First Aid Kit
We have created our own first aid kits for dogs and cats that we have available for purchase at the Martensville Veterinary Hospital.
Each component is of high quality and the liquids are in durable refillable containers. Most components are multi-use and in sufficient quantity to address multiple injuries, unlike many commercial pet first aid kits. Our kits and totes also have a booklet, written by Martensville Veterinary Hospital’s very own veterinarian Katina Stewart, that goes through the basic use (and misuse) of each item, as well as short instructions on how to handle the most common pet first aid emergencies.
Our pet first aid kits are intended to help you get your pet to your veterinarian with the best chance of making a full and speedy recovery. There are first aid class sessions that become available at select times through the year, let us know if you are interested and we can add your name to our contact list.
