What I Learned in Pet First Aid Class--How to Make an Emergency Muzzle

Emergency Muzzle?  What's that? 


Beagle with Emergency Muzzle made out of gauze.


If your pet is ill or injured, you need to get it to the veterinarian as calmly and efficiently as possible.  Even the sweetest, gentlest dog can become aggressive and bite when they are in pain.

If you do not have a muzzle, use a scarf, panty hose, strip of gauze, or cut off the bottom of a a soft t-shirt as an emergency muzzle.



          *Start in the middle at the bottom of the dog’s muzzle.

          *Wrap the bandage upward, tie, and then bring it back downward under the chin and tie.

           *Take the two loose ends and tie them behind the dog’s head securely.




Practice making the muzzle so you are familiar with how to do it and the motions won't be foreign to your pet.

I found this video that will give you a better idea.
