K9 Medic is about learning how to take care of your dog in the event of an emergency. Author Eric Roth is a paramedic for a busy 911 system and has been teaching people how to save the life of their dog by using paramedic first aid techniques since 2009.
Since there is no 911 for canines, Eric takes his world as a paramedic and shows the reader how to apply it to dogs. One thing the book gives to the readers is confidence. Confidence that no matter what the situation involving their dog, they will not only be prepared, but be able to provide care for the best possible outcome.
Content covers over 20 first-aid items including first aid kits, torn pads, dog fights, seizures, broken bones, electrical injuries, muzzling and bleeding control. There is special attention to choking, bloat, and poisons.
Eric writes in a format that is very conducive for learning, and you will be better prepared for any emergency involving your dog. K9 Medic is a must-read and a book that any dog lover will enjoy.
AVAILABLE IN SOFT COVER ($16.95) or EBOOK ($2.99)
