How to approach an injured animal



1. First and foremost protect yourself! If you become injured it will be harder to help the injured animal. Injured animals often become defensive and may become aggressive.


2. Approach the animal slowly and talk in a calm, soothing voice.


3. Always muzzle an animal in pain or have some one restrain the head before examining the injured area. This is important even with your own pet as all animals can bite when injured. Place a commercial muzzle or a fabric muzzle (gauze/nylons) before trying to move an injured dog. A can can be wrapped in a large towel or blanket for transport. Do not place a muzzle on an animal that is having difficulty breathing or vomiting.
