These single evening classes take place in our shelter classroom.
This "paws-on" course is designed to give pet lovers the necessary information that will help you respond to a life threatening emergency involving your dog or cat. Every pet lover should learn these important skills:
• how to approach a sick or injured dog or cat
• safe restraint and transport
• recognition and assessment of an emergency involving your pet
• to give lifesaving rescue breathing and CPR to cats and dogs with practice on a manikin used by veterinary schools
• choking, shock and severe bleeding
• how to handle common emergencies
• making a pet first aid kit and preparing for emergencies
• local contacts for pet welfare and emergencies
The cost of the course is $65 per person.
This fee includes either a dog or cat first aid book.
If you have both dogs and cats and would like to purchase a second book, the cost is $6.75.
Space is limited so pre-registration and payment in advance is required.
To register, please call Lindsay at 982-3555.
