- Strategies for Dogs
Approach your dog calmly and slowly. Kneel down and call their name. Back away and call for help if there's any indication of aggression. If your pet seems passive, build a makeshift stretcher and gently lift him or her onto it, supporting the neck and back areas.
- Strategies for Cats
Your cat may experience pain as you stabilize them. To help prevent them from biting, gently place a blanket or towel over their head. Slowly lift your cat and place him or her in an open-topped box or carrier, carefully supporting the head and neck areas.
