Pet First Aid Course

The Winnipeg Humane Society and Emergency Essentials are proud to offer a Pet First Aid Course on the following dates:
Thursday, January 6 from 6 pm - 10 pm
Thursday, February 24 from 6 pm - 10 pm
Thursday, March 24 from 6 pm - 10 pm

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.
