Animal first aid is: the immediate treatment of the injured animal, using facilities or materials at hand to help you.

The aims of first aid are:   

To preserve life  

To prevent the condition from worsening  

To promote recovery/prevent suffering  

Firstly – assess the situation (is the animal in danger of more injury, does it need moving immediately, or the traffic stopping etc.

You need to assess how you can safely help – do not put yourself in danger).

Don’t panic, take a deep breath and try to think logically

A – Airway (check that there is nothing in the mouth causing a blockage.)

B – Breathing (is the patient breathing)
