From working dogs on Australian farms to search and rescue dogs and beloved pets, canines are valued members of the community that contribute to the betterment of the lives of their human companions, according to global animal health association HealthforAnimals.

Outlining several ways in which dogs can assist with health issues, the infographic reminds readers that we must in turn care for the health of our canine companions.

HealthforAnimals, formerly the International Federation for Animal Health, will be releasing a stream of educational content throughout the year, including further animations and interactive infographics spanning a range of topics.

Hey there,

We created an animated Dog CPR Infographic for dog owners. I thought you’d be interested in it for Vet Times website because I see you’ve posted infographics that are helpful to pet owners before.

Let me know if you’re interested in seeing it and I’d be happy to forward along!

Hope you’re having a great new year so far 🙂

Take care,
