All across the world, we live with our pets in our homes. They are family, but how do we help protect our furry family members? They come with us everywhere. They get themselves in trouble. Then what are we suppose to do when they get hurt and we are dealing with a first aid situation with your dog or cat?
We prepare ourselves on how to treat our physical injuries. We take first aid for serious injuries and teach our children on where are the bandages for their scrapes and cuts. However, we fail to prepare ourselves for loneliness, rejection, and depression. We fail at creating tools in our lives that would help us during these challenging times. It has become a such apparent issue in our society that it has become a topic for research for Guy Winch. He addresses his research during his local TED Talk called Why we all need to practice emotional first aid.
