These days, there are lots of reported car accidents. All people are prone to accidents, even animals such as your pet dog. However, you should not worry because there are lots of things that pet owners can do once your beloved pet is involved in a car accident.

You need to approach your injured pet with caution. As soon as you see that your dog has been hit, you need to pick them up quickly and carefully. If your pet is snapping or growling, you should try to gently muzzle your pet. If you don’t have veterinary first aid equipment, you try pantyhose with the panty part cut off since its stretchy cloth is ideal to muzzle your dog. In addition, you could also use a scarf, shoelace, or leash in order to bandage the injured area. The next thing you should do is to assess the injury of your pet to decide if you need to rush your dog to a veterinary hospital.
