EMS Introduces Trained Service Dogs to Help Cut Costs

Canines have been used for police work, search & rescue, tracking and a variety of other tasks. Now they’re assisting EMS…and doing so at a much lower cost.

In all due seriousness, your dog might not be able to give you mouth-to-mouth, but you can certainly save Fido in an emergency. Perhaps it’s time to sign up for Dog First Aid?

P.S. Special thanks to Brandy Bowers at the Bureau of Environmental Services for sending this on. Shout outs to the original (?) sources including The Poodle (and Dog) Blog and Just One More Pet!
