RUTHERFORD COUNTY, Tenn. – After responding to a head-on collision and tending to the occupants of both vehicles, a fire and EMS crew turned their attention to a different kind of patient – a dog.
Pepper, the dog, had been in one of the involved vehicles and had bleeding paws from a too-short nail trim at the groomer, wrote Rutherford County Fire & Rescue on its Facebook page.
Rutherford County Fire & Rescue firefighters administered first aid and applied bandages to Pepper using the same techniques they had just learned that morning from a local veterinarian.
A paramedic with Rutherford County EMS then transported Pepper to the local hospital to which her owner had been taken, safely reuniting Pepper with her family
