A small animal referral practice has produced a series of free first aid videos for pet owners.

Davies Veterinary Specialists, based near Hitchin in Hertfordshire, says sometimes an ill or injured pet could need immediate care – and knowing what to do could provide vital time to get the animal to a vet and save a life.

Presented by registered veterinary nurse Danielle Banks, the six videos provide an insight into the highly skilled role of a nurse at a busy veterinary referral centre and include practical hints and tips for pet owners.

In the first episode Danielle and colleagues Hannah Perry and Nichole Neate explain the role of a referral nurse. Further episodes guide dog and cat owners through some of the practical skills, such as what to do in a first aid situation, how to handle and examine a pet safely and how to administer medication effectively.

Davies managing director Tim Richardson said: “Registered veterinary nurses are the beating heart of Davies and we would not be able to function without them. We are proud to celebrate Veterinary Nurse Awareness Month with our new video series, which not only showcases the outstanding skills and dedication of our team but also provide pet owners with numerous important practical nuggets of information and know-how to help them cope in a first aid crisis.”

The videos are being rolled out across Davies’ social media platforms during the month of May and can be viewed on the company’s YouTube channel.
