Simple Aid Procedures You Can Do for Pet Injuries While Waiting Your Veterinarian | Animal Health | Scoop.it
Let’s face it, our furry friends, may they be feline, canine or other species, are prone to accidents. Their curiosity may lead them to break a vase, chew your wooden chair to pieces or eat items that could be toxic to them.
Melissa's insight:

Even the most responsible owner’s pets can get into accidents. For this reason, it is important to have a basic knowledge of animal first aid and to keep your veterinarian’s number handy.

He added that "our pet is well cared for and loved as a member of our family."

 

"This is an opportunity to break the cycle," Vick said. "To that end, I will continue to honor my commitment to animal welfare and be an instrument of positive change."

 

In 2010, Humane Society President Wayne Pacelle told HLN's Jane Velez-Mitchell that the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback shouldn't get a pet immediately and should have to meet certain benchmarks whenever he did.

Michael Vick was suspended from the NFL in August of 2007 for pleading guilty to the federal charge of forced dogfighting and served 18 months in federal prison. Vick returned to the NFL in 2009 (although many people regret this decision of his) and he claims to be a new man. Vick has been working in public outreach programs and said it would be wrong to close the door to owning a dog. Vick has now purchased a new dog now and claims that he needs to teach his children to develop a healthy relationship with animals. Vick claims to respect animal welfare and proposes to keep the health of animals in mind.
