It’s been bothering me for quite some time.
What happens to your dog when you faint (have a stroke, lose consciousness, weaken) on the street?
What happens to your pets when you live alone and paramedics take you to the hospital?
Does your friend stay on the street?
Die alone at your house?
Arek from the Ratownik Medyczny site explained to me how it works in Poland. There is a simple procedure for that. Paramedics call Police or other municipal services and they take a pet to the animal shelter or vet. both in the street and house scenario. At home, additionally, a dog or cat is being locked in the bathroom immediately, so that people who bring help were safe. And that’s all!
Arek told me also that he hasn’t seen such a situation, so this knowledge hasn’t been implemented to the practice. Of course, it is great but… it’s hard to believe, isn’t it?:)
