Event description

Description

Purpose
When people think of first aid, they often do not think about their pets. Pets have accidents the same as humans and knowing what to do should the worst happen is a simple thing to learn with basic training. Pet first aid is not aimed to replace veterinary care but it will help you to recognise an emergency, calm your pet and reduce the risks of delayed treatment. Learning pet first aid is fun and informative and will give you the skills to deal with a pet emergency should it arise.

Duration
1/2 Day

Intended Audience
This course is ideal for:

  • Vet staff
  • Kennels
  • Dog walkers
  • Pet professionals
  • Pet owners

Objectives

Understanding basic first aid for your pet will give you the skills to assist them and prevent them from getting worse before professional help is given by your vet.
