Emergency Response for Pets
Why classes in Pet First Aid? There is no 911 system for common emergencies for pets and domesticated animals. You the pet owner or Good Samaritan may be the quickest or only support for an animal in distress. What can you do? Pet First Aid classes are modeled after proven classes in First Aid and CPR response to humans.
We provide trained instructors who offer classes that are 4 hours in length, include hands-on practice and provide a certification of completion to program participants.
• CPR for cats and dogs
• Stopping severe bleeding
• Choking assists
• Immobilizing broken bones and injuries
• Detecting serious illnesses
• Avoidance and treatment of heat stroke
• What to do if your pet is hit by a car
Class materials include books developed in conjunction with sources such as The Humane Society of the United States and American Board of Veterinarian Practitioners. We use dog and cat manikins with lungs for practice in rescue breathing and CPR.
