It’s national Pet First Aid Awareness Month. Those who follow this blog know I frequently post about the subject. One of my most popular books covers pet first aid in A-to-Z detail. To celebrate the book-birthday of the audiobook, I’ve discounted THE FIRST AID COMPANION FOR DOGS AND CATS from $16.75 to only $2.99 for this week only (4/17 –> 4/23), on these platforms:
I hope you NEVER need to use pet first aid on your furry wonders. But learning how to administer cat first aid or dog first aid literally means life and death for your pet.
Writing the Pet First Aid Book
Several years ago, I had the honor and privilege to interview more than 70 emergency veterinarians for my book THE FIRST-AID COMPANION FOR DOGS AND CATS. I’m humbled to have heard from many pet parents that the book’s information helped, and even saved cat and dog lives. Mee-WOW!
But pet first-aid and emergency care evolves, with improvements, new conditions identified, or even better techniques perfected. While the original print (and Ebook) texts continue to offer solid help to pet parents, I wanted to update the pet first-aid information with Fear Free Handling tips, and new information that has since come to light. While I pray you never need the information, this new audiobook format makes the pet first-aid veterinary advice available on-the-go, whenever and wherever you and your cats or dogs need it.
WHAT’S IN THE BOOK
“Amy Shojai has created the definitive 911 emergency guide for pets. Long recommended by vets and pet parents alike, now she’s updated the content in an audiobook format to make helping your pet—and saving his life anytime and anywhere—easier than ever before. Every cat and dog lover should have their vet on speed-dial, and this audiobook on their phone. Highly recommended!” — Dr. Marty Becker, internationally known veterinary expert and founder of fearfreepets.com & fearfreehappyhomes.com
