Pet first aid is the immediate care given to an injured or suddenly ill pet as temporary assistance until competent veterinary care is available. Properly applied first aid can save your pet’s life, reduce recovery time and be the difference between temporary disability and lifelong disability.
This program concentrates on basic first aid care. It is not intended to replace veterinary care, but rather to instruct the pet owner on how to save a pet’s life during an emergency or to minimize a pet’s trauma after an injury
In addition to basic emergency care, we will cover some common illnesses and other problems that your pet may be exposed to. Although first aid is important, nothing can replace good nutrition, regular veterinary check-ups, a safe environment and, of course, your love and devotion for your pet.
This program will primarily refer to dogs and cats. However, first aid applications for most pets are similar.
