    Slightly a stretch for your blog maybe, but how about first aid for the groomer accidents that happen. I k now I am always cutting myself, and bites, scratches scrapes all need first aid and many people don;t know what to do when the groomer accidentaly cuts off the very tip of their finger......don;t ask how I know that.

      I saw an itty bitty dog fight last night. One dog had a couple of punctures on the ear & neck. That might be something.

        Oh, yeah, and when I was at a vet's the lead tech would not wrap the ears on a matted Maltese I did so they would not swell after I shaved them. Thee owner refused to believe I did not harm her dog and never came back. Could you please teach us how to wrap them?

          I've used the contents of my pet first aid kit more on myself than on any pet. mine included.

            Thanks for the ideas.
            I have wanted to do something on groomer safety for awhile. I will also plan to do something on ear injuries including care and wrapping.
            SMP- the only problem with any puncture wound is that is closes and the bacteria stay trapped. that can cause serious problems. any puncture wound, no matter how minor, should be seen by a vet.

              I keep the makings for a compression bandage onhand. Never know when you will slice somkething off you needed! LOL AND bite care. My lip that was bitten badly was not bleeding when I got to the ER because I knew what to do. (I have photos if you want to use them).

                  Torsion/bloat if you can't get to the vet right away, or before getting to the vet.

                  We were at a show in Utah, and being from Nevada, didn't know where to take my friends Belgian Shepherd. The vet said if we had "passed" a tube the dog would have had a better chance. I had heard of this having Borzoi, but we were not prepared.

                    what you would have needed is a bloat kit. which is bacically a long tube that you use to flip the stomach. that is way beyond the scope of my capabilities. that something that a vet would need to demostrate. sorry. but it is still a good topic to discuss and is now on my list. thanks.

                      Yeah, I had heard about it, (passing a tube) but never have seen it done, so I would be too afraid to try by myself.
