Wag’N’s new Pet First Aid Bandana provides first aid action steps for pet emergencies
June 7, 2010
Herndon, VA — Many dog owner’s view their dog as a member of the family, giving them special treats, premium food, trips to the dog park, “play dates” with other four-footed friends and even birthday parties. Because dogs serve such an important role in our lives, dog owners should be prepared to act as a “911 responder” in the event of an emergency where the dog requires immediate attention. The new Wag’N Pet First Aid Bandana provides dog owners with essential pet first aid treatment guidelines for such topics as hypothermia, heat exhaustion, insect and animal bites and more— literally tied around the pet’s neck.
“First aid and wilderness survival bandana’s have been available to assist during human emergencies for years,” said Ines de Pablo, who holds a Masters Degree in Risk, Crisis & Emergency Management and is founder of Wag’N Enterprises—the first and only dedicated Pet Emergency Management Company in the world. “Pet owners love to dress up their dogs with collars and scarves—we believe that pet fashion can serve a greater purpose by providing the basics of Pet First Aid on an easy to carry and versatile bandana.”
The only first aid bandana in the world made especially for pets, the Wag’N Pet First Aid Bandana is 22” x 22” and is made 100% red cotton with white imprint. The Wag’N Bandana summarizes the symptoms and treatment of the following pet first aid topics:
- General Pet First Aid Rules
- Dog and Cat ABC’s – covers rescue breathing and pet CPR
- First Aid for bleeding as well as snake, insect and spider bites
- Situations requiring emergency veterinary care
- Chocking Management
- Burns – Actions for Survival
- Seizure Response
- Heat Exhaustion, Heat Stroke and Cold Injury First Aid
- Bleeding Management
- Shock First Aid
Dogs and their humans can wear the stylish bandana around the house, yard, or block, and it is great for hikes or when traveling. The Wag’N Pet First Aid Bandana can also be used as a bandage, sling, eye patch, for cleaning wounds, as an emergency muzzle, to signal an emergency, or even as an ice pack for an injured pet or pet parent.
Wag’N reminds pet parents that the bandana does not circumvent them from taking a pet first aid course. The skills of pet first aid are best learned in the classroom and the basics skills can be covered in as little as four hours. The bandana was designed to remind pet owners of what to do when tensions are high in a pet related emergency.
