K9 Affairs where all things dog are a concerning affair.

Can you help your dog?

if they choked on a toy...  

if they were hit by a car...

if their heart stopped...

if they were drowning...

if they ate chocolate...

if they slashed their paw...

Canine First Aid can make the difference. 


 What is done between when an injury happens and when veterinary care is available will greatly affect your dog’s chance of a full recovery.

 Expect the best for your pet.  Is your pet's caregiver (walker, groomer, sitter) up to date on their pet first aid certification?  Professionals who charge for their service should be be prepared and certificatied.  Ask to see their certificate.

Take the DOGSAFE Canine First Aid certificate course yourself and learn how to help your dog in an emergency.  One day of learning will prepare you so you can make a difference for your dog!
