May is a busy month for Pet Celebrations.

The first week of May is National Pet Week as well and Be Kind to Animals Week.

May 13-19 is National Dog Bite Prevention Week.

May 3 is National Disabled Pets Day.

May 15 is Hug Your Cat Day.

Do you know what to do when your dog or cat becomes hurt?

• Be the first to aid your pet. Some simple first aid measures can provide a necessary and life-saving remedy until medical help can be reached.
• Stay calm. Do not panic. When you are calm, so is your pet.
• Handle with care. Carefully restrain an injured pet for his safety as well as yours. Muzzle a dog unless he is unconscious, has difficulty breathing or has a mouth injury. Use an e-collar or a carrier for cats.

Your veterinarian knows best. If you think that your pet is ill or injured, do not hesitate to take him to the veterinarian.
