COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Emergency responders in Ohio could provide certain medical treatment to injured pets under legislation that state lawmakers plan to consider on their final session day of the year.

The Ohio House and Senate are scheduled to hold their last voting sessions of 2015 on Wednesday before breaking for the holidays. The General Assembly’s work would then resume in January.

The House planned to vote on a bill authorizing certain emergency personnel to provide an injured dog or cat with some medical services, such as “mouth to snout,” while responding to a fire or other emergency situation.

Representatives also will weigh legislation that would authorize probate judges to issue search warrants in criminal matters.

A Senate committee was slated to consider a corrections bill to the state budget.
