Animals also have a right to first aid, “because we find ourselves alone”

They were dozens of participants a few days ago in Chartres (OR et lower) To follow his training with the greatest interest Lorient Bossac. A dozen, no more until everyone can fully participate.

This training is the best in First aid for dogs and cats (PSCF) that she created was inspired by her own experience with her pet in distress “because you really find yourself alone when your dog or cat is in pain,” and, as with humans, bad gestures can be devastating.

Lauriane Boussac is a naturopathic doctor by training for people and animals. She has also been involved for many years in the business Red Cross as such first aider.

The trigger for my current engagement was when, one fine day, I found myself alone with my dog ​​who was in total distress…me too.

It draws lessons from this situation that could have gone wrong. An opportunity to discover that animal first aid is already in place, and we can then go further.

Special training and now also for horses

Moving forward, she gets closer to what is out there, trains herself and then decides to create first aid units for dogs and cats in which she draws inspiration from both the features offered to humans and animals.

For a while now, she’s pushed her concept even further, this time First aid for horses In response to a genuine request “I called the vets for this unit because we’re attacking a completely different dimension.”

For horses, for example, foot diseases are particularly frequent and crucial, so I followed the advice of a equine foot doctor.

Between first aid and care, a barrier

Lorient insists on one thing, truth Do not know to go away In this first aid:

You find yourself really alone with your animal, in an emergency situation and waiting to be taken either to a vet or for it to move. But above all, we do not cross the first aid barrier towards care, we are neither veterinarians nor veterinary assistants.

Boundaries are sometimes misunderstood by pet owners because they can seem blurry.

Lauriane cites as an example of cauterize the woundsThe splint application And they are real veterinary work that “requires anesthesia because the animal is in pain”.

The text of the law authorizes and protects the actions covered in first aid but then it is necessary to see the maximum for these interventions.

Above all, we must be acutely aware of the suffering of animals, which has been neglected for far too long. I think of hounds that were so badly injured that the hunters put the stitches on themselves.

Social networks are full of advice, and sometimes it’s really bad

The trainer suggests that pet owners already know how to spot alarming signs and then know what to do if they occurhemorrhageand woundsHeart failureUnconsciousness, drowningAnd the chokinggastric torsion/distraction, sunstroke

Situations that thrive on social networks, sometimes with risky advice.

If we take the condition that many pet owners have suffered with scorching summers, heat stroke, we find out anything and everything on the nets. Before any trip to the vet that could aggravate the condition, it is necessary to specifically waste this first aid to lower the animal’s temperature.

Through panic or sometimes with the desire to do well, the situation worsens, hence the need to master the correct actions.

For a year since I started these courses, Lorient couldn’t help but see the enthusiasm and expectations of the animal owners.

It has established itself as a territorial boundary for the entire region Lower Valley Center or even neighboring departments if there is a demand, such as the Paris region or Vienna. Sometimes it pays up Toulouse “Because of the lack of trainers in this field.”

Although she is not the only one practicing in France, there is not much in her field “because it takes a lot of time, especially on weekends, a lot of travel with high costs and especially expensive equipment”.

In her bag, Lauriane has already idiots representing all sizes of dogs, From Chihuahua to Saint Bernard !

Sophisticated mannequins are worth several hundred euros and must be changed regularly.

Added value to CV

However, she wanted her training, which was being done without any help from any official body, to remain inside Accessible rates So that as many people as possible can reach it.

As a naturopath, she imparts natural techniques to the participants “but everyone does what they want, the classic treatments are there too.”

Lorient says this training has had the opportunity to offer to gendarmes on a personal basis, to nurses, veterinary assistants, or even pet sitter or a nanny. “Even if it has not yet been recognized in France, it does indeed bring more confidence to those who followed it, and to the owners as well, and is rather an added value on the CV.”
