    DefaultPug Emergency Care (CPR, Poison Control, Hot Weather, etc.)

    This is a collection of important Emergency Pug Care information which has been previously posted in various threads here on PugVillage. Be prepared for emergencies by printing the relevant information now and hanging it where you will have quick access if needed!
    • Poison Control: If you think that your pug has ingested a potentially poisonous substance, please contact a Poison Control Center or your vet immediately.

    • Assembling a Pug First Aid Kit: (information courtesy of begnbark.com ) Every pet owner should have some basic first aid supplies on hand. Be sure to check your emergency kit periodically and replace items that are expired. Here is a list of supplies to put together for your pet first aid kit:
    1. Absorbent compresses (gauze sponges assorted sizes)
    2. Adhesive tape
    3. Antibiotic ointment
    4. Blanket (emergency blanket or space blanket)
    5. Clean cloth
    6. Cold compress (instant cold compresses work by squeezing or shaking the package)
    7. Gloves
    8. Glucose paste or corn syrup (if your pet is diabetic or has a history of low blood sugar)
    9. Grooming clippers
    10. Hydrogen peroxide (3 percent)
    11. Leash
    12. Muzzle or snout loop – even the gentlest animals will sometimes bite when in pain.
    13. Petroleum jelly
    14. Penlight or small, bright flashlight
    15. Rectal thermometer
    16. Roll cohesive wrap (3-inch width) (Also known as VetWrap)
    17. Roll gauze (2-inch width)
    18. Rubbing alcohol
    19. Scissors (small with blunt end)
    20. Syringe (baby dose size)
    21. Sterile eye lubricate
    22. Sterile saline eye wash
    23. Styptic powder (to stop bleeding)
    24. Towel
    25. Tweezers
    26. Epsom salts (to make saline solution)
    27. Water
    28. (In North America only) Benadryl (diphenhydramine) in appropriate dose for your pet's size, if approved by your vet for allergic reactions. Residents of other countries should ask which antihistamine is appropriate to use for your pug.
    29. List of emergency telephone numbers (including your pet's vet, an after-hours emergency veterinary hospital.
    • Poison Control Center (APCC): 1-800-764-7661 or 1-800-222-1222
    • ASPCA: 888-426-4435 or 800-548-2423 or 800-222-1222
    30. Have your pet identification tags and any medications your pet is taking. It is good to have a kit for the house and the car. One can never know when an emergency will occur.

    Financial Assistance Resources for pet owners

    Are you having trouble paying for vet bills or important pet care? Are you at risk of losing your pug due to your financial situation? There are national and state organizations that may be able to assist you.

    Check out these links:

    Humane Society of the United States
    No owner wants a pet to suffer because medical care is out of reach. Financial aid is out there, and there are steps you can take to cover an emergency vet bill.

    AAHA Helping Pets Fund
    AAHA Helping Pets Fund
    As the benevolent arm of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), the AAHA Foundation seeks to improve the lives of pets. The AAHA Helping Pets Fund works with AAHA-accredited veterinary practices to identify pets in need. Accredited practices may then apply for assistance from the Fund for emergency and non-elective treatment of abandoned pets and pets whose owners are facing financial hardship.


    Care Credit
    www.carecredit.com
    CareCredit, the leader in patient/client financing, has helped more than 3 million patients/clients get the treatment or procedures they needed and wanted. With a comprehensive range of plan options, for treatment or procedure fees from $1 to over $25,000, we offer a plan and a low monthly payment to fit comfortably into almost every budget.


    Angels 4 Animals
    www.Angels4Animals.org
    Angels4Animals, a non-profit organization and a program of Inner Voice Community Services, has a mission to serve as the guardian angel of animals whose caretakers find themselves in difficult financial situations. At Angels4Animals we believe that animal owners should not have to say goodbye to the animals that they love. Our work is accomplished in conjunction with veterinary clinics across the country, eager to assist as many animals, and their owners, as possible. Our services range from financial aid to complete treatment to those pets and pet owners in need.


    IMOM
    http://www.imom.org
    Mission Statement:
    Helping people help pets. To better the lives of sick, injured and abused companion animals. We are dedicated to insure that no companion animal has to be euthanized simply because their caretaker is financially challenged.


    Help-A-Pet
    http://www.help-a-pet.org/
    Our efforts focus on serving the elderly, the disabled, and the working poor. For lonely seniors, physically/mentally challenged individuals and children of working parents, pets represent much more than a diversion.


    In the UK: Assistance with Veterinary Bills
    http://www.petloversonline.co.uk/financial.htm
    Most of us can cope with the financial commitment involved in the day to day care of our pets. However, how many of us come out in a cold sweat when our pet is ill or injured and we know we have to take it to the vet? Most of us are fortunate enough to be able to afford it but, some of us who love our animals dearly cannot.

    In Canada:

    The Farley Foundation. The Farley Foundation is a charitable organization, founded in 2001, that subsidizes non-elective medical care for pets of seniors receiving the Federal Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) and persons with disabilities receiving the Ontario Disability Support Payment (ODSP). Farley funding is both applied for, and disbursed through eligible veterinary practices across Ontario.

    If you need to surrender your pug for any reason...
    Please find out if there is a Pug Rescue Organization near you. A breed-specific rescue group will know more about the pug's special needs and work hard to find a permanent home for your pug. You can find a list of U.S. Pug Rescues on the Pug Dog Club of America's website here: Rescue
    Or contact: Jason Huff, 812-454-4953

    You can also try contacting a local AKC training club to see if they have information on additional local resources that may assist you: Training Resources

    Wow! Thanks! These links are great! I am going to copy these and send them through the network.

    Also make hard copies and leave them at the vet' offices.

    Take care,

    Thank you for the information! :) We should keep a printed copy of this and stick it to our fridge to be always ready.
    Pugs have a way of finding the people who need them, filling an emptiness we don't even know we have.

    These links are wonderful resources to have handy. I will definitely print and have handy. I am currently going through a very scary situation with my 5 year pug, Max. Yesterday morning, we had him admitted to Animal Hospital where they diagnosed him with aspiration pneumonia. We were out of town and had to rush home and get him to ER.

    Thank you for this excellent reminder! The first aid and emergency care advice is always helpful!
    Unfortunately, the financial assistance here is literally non existing, but I am glad to see that at least pug and other dog owners in North America have the ways to improve their pets' life quality by providing them a better care.
