A First Aid and Disaster Guide for Dog Owners
by S. Heath and A. O'Shea. Whether you're hiking with your canine friend
in a remote area or work with a dog on a search-and-rescue team or police
force, you need to be prepared for emergencies when veterinary service is
not available. Rescuing Rover: A First Aid and Disaster Guide for Dog
Owners provides dog owners, handlers, and emergency physicians with an
understandable guide for safe treatment until the dog can be transported
to a veterinarian. Although a number of books describe some techniques for
the emergency care of dogs, there is no single illustrated summary that is
as practical. With its concise, easy-to-read instructions, detailed and
beautifully rendered illustrations, and convenient format, this book
covers such common medical procedures as bandaging an ear and constructing
a makeshift muzzle. Written in consultation with canine handlers from
FEMA, staff from the AAVDM and the Purdue University School of Veterinary
Medicine, it can also be used as a practical learning guide for veterinary
medical and technical students.

first-Aid for your Dog by Tamara Shearer.
This book is a must-have for all dog owners. It reviews most everything
you need to know in an emergency situation. The illustrations are kind of
basic in their drawing, but the other information makes up for this slight
problem. Everything seems to be covered from lacerations and broken bones
down to poisons and poisonous plants (giving you symptoms and treatments).
