Sorry if this is in the wrong place, I wasn't sure where to put this one.

After watching the UKs Professor Noel Fitpatrick repair numerous pets on his programme Supervet, it made me think that I'm not that prepared for my pets medical needs. I do have a pet FA kit, and Merek's manual but I'm wondering what else I should have.

I have a OAP dog and tropical fish at the moment, but there are plans for another dog and maybe a cat too.

I have the usual supplies of collars, leads, stroller, Bob kit already.

I'm wondering what information I should have, such as physiology and anatomy of each pet, do a FA course for my pets, build a really good library (I'd love any suggestions) and watch more videos on Veterinary stuff. i have found some great charts on Pinterest to print off (see my Pin board on Veterinary or individual pet vet sections)

I'd love your advice.

Thanks
Purdy.


PS: I had a nightmare where my dog bleed out just like an alcoholic, so now I'm wondering what would cause that, I'm thinking poisoning. Luckily my chap is fine of course but it does play on ones mind.

PPS Just in case for UKers, Profession Noel Fitzpatrick is in Surrey:

Work part time at an animal hospital.
learned alot there.
As for medical procedures many are almost exactly the same as woukd be used on people.
only difference is layout and even then it's very similar.

Not an expert on all the surgical stuff! I agree on volunteering at an animal hospital. You might visit a larger library or look around online for some older books on the subjects you're interested in. The information is out there... learning it without help is the problem!

By the way, consider giving Thorvin kelp a try. You can buy it online. It's great stuff for nearly every animal. Horses and livestock especially respond well to it, and cats and dogs I've heard respond well in smaller doses. Thorvin's website has a lot of details, and their kelp is pretty affordable. I've had neighbors and relatives turn bad situations around through supplementation with kelp and medicinal clays especially! (That includes cancer and some bad bowel diseases, and I know throvin's great for pets' rheumatic complaints.)

Maybe you'll find that interesting! Good luck with preparations. :)
