Dog First Aid : How to Care for a Dog’s Torn Toe Nail

Dog First Aid : How to Care for a Dog’s Torn Toe Nail


So I am going to demonstrate for you how you
would bandage a torn toenail from a dog. We are working with Ty here and he has torn his
right dewclaw. Dewclaw is the nail that is upside on the leg and he has torn that completely
off. So first thing that we want to do is you can see that the hair around the dewclaw
is a little bit matted and the first thing we need to do is clean that area up. We need
to brush that hair out. Now you can shave the area if you want to. I am trying to save
the coat so I am just going to brush this area out. It is going to tender and sore so
I am being very careful to hold the hair away from the skin so I don’t hit the skin with
the brush
and it is actually matted like this because he has been licking it. Ty stop. I am going
to expose the area. Put your head down. Okay, put your head down. Okay you can see that
it is a little bit red and raw here, the area that he has been licking; the area around
the dewclaw that is missing and in fact I will scissor the hair away from this area;
make it a little bit easier to work. Okay he is very obvious sensitive in this area
so I am going to work carefully.
So this is the dewclaw here. It is a little bit swollen. The dewclaw itself is actually
missing. We are going to clean this area out here. I am going go use some Betadyne from
my first aid kit; some Betadyne and cotton. If you can leave a wound like this open for
the air to heal, that is always better but if the dog is worrying it, licking it and
causing it to swell up like this then we really do need to close it off. Before we close it
off though, I want to clean it out.

How to Make a First Aid Kit : Electrolyte to Include in Your First Aid Kit

How to Make a First Aid Kit : Electrolyte to Include in Your First Aid Kit


For certain trips for example if you’re going
into the dessert for a hiking up in the mountains, in the dessert, if your going for long long
camping trips in areas where it’s very humid or hot and you are doing a lot of sweating
or even if you’re just doing some exercise that causes you a lot of sweating and loosing
a lot of fluid then you want to replenish your electrolytes, that’s your sodium, your
potassium, your glucose in your body to prevent any dehydration. So, if you can get hold of
these packages or anything that this is, for example, is called oral rehydration salts
that would be very good to include into your kit. I will show you how to use this but you
can also get this in tablet form, too. So, basically tablet form is a compressed form
of the loose powder and this is the loose powder form. And, in this package it contains
sodium chloride, which is the chemical name for salt, potassium chloride, and glucose.
So,here it says, directions: How to Use. Very simple, it says dissolve in 1 liter drinking
water. But, for example, sometimes kids don’t like to drink things that taste icky, so you
can also put it in orange juice, any kind of juice, fruit juice, and let it dissolve
in there and you really wouldn’t tast it at all. So, it’s, the kids are more inclined
to drink it. But, anyway here, it’s very simple, I’ll show you. You just get a liter of water,
but here we just got a sample, a cup of water, and of course this is when a pair of scissors
comes in handy because it you don’t have a pair of scissors I guess you’ll have to resort
to using your teeth. But, which I am going to do but I don’t have strong teeth. So, if
we, if we, if we can find a pair of scissors, which we should have, oh, here it is, so here
see, pair of scissors, I told you is very important item. If you don’t have strong teeth
like me so, very easy, open it up, and here we go. We will then just pour into the water
and give it a stir and this is when if you have a depressor if you don’t have any sort
of like catheter, you can always improvise, that’s why it’s always good if you can get
one of these tongue depressors in your kit because you can always use it as a stirer.
See, so these things in the kit, these items, you can improvise and use them, it’s like
survival techniques so here we go, this is my stirer and let it dissolve and I’m going
to taste it. See what it tastes like. I haven’t tried this brand, let’s see. See what it tastes
like, it’s better to have ice.
Yes, it’s better to put into orange juice or something that’s sweet because it’s like
drinking a pot of salt. But, it’s good for you though when you’re dehydrated. You don’t
want to end up in the ER, right, so, alright, there we go. Rehydration.

So to go over with you the items, we’ve got
our scissors,
thermometer and you want to make sure that you clearly marked that this is a dog thermometer
so that you don’t accidentally use it on humans. You want to have tape and make sure that you
actually have tape in here and you are going to have gauze that you can use to turn into
gauze pads. You can make your own gauze pads as well as vet wrap. Vet wrap is a great material
to use. It is self-adhesive so you want to have your vet wrap available. You should have
something that you can use as a muzzle to close the dogs mouth if you need to. You can
actually use a real muzzle or just some piece of material cloth that you can use to keep
the dogs mouth closed. You need to have a very good supply of cotton balls, Vaseline
to use with your thermometer, Hydrogen Peroxide. Hydrogen Peroxide you are going to use if
your dog is eaten or ingested something and need to make him vomit. Rubbing alcohol, Betadyne,
cough syrup, your care solution, activated charcoal and you can get this from most drug
stores. Not something most people typically have in their house, ear ointment; that’s
all that we have in here. You want to make sure that you have your list ready and available
and make sure that you get all of the stuff and you have one central place that you can
keep everything so that when there is an emergency and you need to give first aid to your dog,

around the house and locating it.

Dog First Aid : Dangers of Kennel Cough in Dogs

Dog First Aid : Dangers of Kennel Cough in Dogs


So for a smaller breed dog, I would fill the
syringe to for 1/2 tablespoon. You would open the dogs mouth, open towards the cheek and
insert it in and then you can give them the cough syrup. Probably talk to your veterinarian
about how frequently you should give the cough syryup and most veterinarian’s do recommend
giving cough syrup for severe coughing. If your dog is continuing to cough and is getting
lethargic, then you might want to put the dog on antibiotics. Again, this is something
that your vet is going to determine but it is not uncommon to put your dogs on course
of antibiotics to make sure that it doesn’t become more serious infection. If yhou find
that your dog is very lethargic and breathing very shallowly, then you want to bring them
to the veterinarian specialist. They are probably going to take lung x-rays and test with oxygen
levels. If the dog is trying to avoid coughing when coughing becomes very uncomfortable,
the dog can start to avoid coughing by taking shallow breaths and the more shallow breath
they take, the less oxygen is coming in and it will actually reduce the level of blood
oxygen in their body. So if the case becomes very extreme, the dog might need some medical
attention. They might need to have oxygen placed inter nasally. They might need to be
on IV-fluids. A kennel cough can be something that is fairly mild and dogs get over in a
day or two and it can be something that will cause your dog to wind up in the hospital
for a couple of days and we just talked about a couple of things to do to help care for
them.

Dog First Aid : What is Kennel Cough?

Dog First Aid : What is Kennel Cough?


What is kennel cough. Probably everybody has
heard that and heard from vets and if you’ve boarded your dog, you’ve heard it from places
that you board but people may not have a really good idea what is kennel cough and how your
dog can get it. Kennel cough is an illness that is a combination of viral and bacterial
infections and dogs are likely to get kennel cough when they are in places where large
numbers of dogs congregate. Dog shows are very typical place. You have dogs coming from
all over the country and they are getting together. One dog may be sick and it spreads
very very quickly. It is highly contagious. Anther place you might come across kennel
cough would be in a dog park where again you have a large number of dogs coming together.
Boarding facilities are another place kennel cough can be very prevalent. So kennel cough
again, is a mixture, a combination of viral and bacterial infections. There are two types
of vaccinations that your veterinarian can give your dog. There is a inter nasal vaccination
and that is thought to last for up to about 6 months. There is also actually an injection
which is thought to last 6 to 12 months. The problem is that if the combination of viruses
and bacterial infections that are making up the kennel cough, the common word for the
dogs illness, is always changing so these vaccinations are not a 100 percent guaranteed.
Many times dogs have actually had the vaccination will come down with kennel cough. So the best
thing you can do is be aware of where you are taking your dog. Vaccinate if your veterinarian
specialist feels like the area you are in has a lot of kennel cough going around, watch
where you take your dog. If you are not sure about the health of other dogs are present
where your dog is, avoid contact with those dogs.

How to Survive a Venomous Snake Bite : How to Use An Extractor to Remove Snake Venom

How to Survive a Venomous Snake Bite : How to Use An Extractor to Remove Snake Venom


Hi, I’m Ginger Black. I’m a professional snake
handler with Expert Village. Okay. We have our pseudo snake bite victim here who was
prepared enough to bring his Sawyer extraction kit with him. Inside the kit you have a cheat
sheet telling you what you can use this kit for. There are sting relief pads for bee and
ant stings, things to that effect. Alcohol prep pads. A couple of Band-Aids. The extractor
itself. The tips that belong in it. And a razor. You want to begin by taking one of
your alcohol prep pads and very gently cleaning the bite location. Your razor. You want to
very gently shave around the bite location to remove any hair there. Remove your extractor.
And, choose a tip that is an appropriate size for the wound. You want something that will
cover both punctures from the fangs. If the snake was too large to do with one tip, you
may need two extraction kits. You’ll pull the plunger back on the extractor. Put the
tip on the end. Place it over the puncture wounds. And push the plunger in. This draws
the skin up into the tip and will suck blood and venom from the victims skin. You don’t
want to leave it on anymore than thirty seconds at a time. To remove it, simply pull the plunger
out. Take it off. Clean the site again with a prep pad. Clean the kit. And, replace it.
Go through the whole process again. You want to do this as many times as possible within
the first five minutes after the bite.
