Our pets are part of our family and we love them dearly but are you confident that you would know what to do should your pet come to any harm? It could be something simple like a cut or scratch but you could also find yourself in a situation where your pet may need CPR. In any case having some knowledge of First Aid should be a priority, and you don’t need to have your own pet either to want to have pet First Aid knowledge, as a nation of animal lovers this is a must for anyone.
Here at ASTS, our half day course and will give you the knowledge and confidence to look after your pet should anything happen to them, plus what to do in between you getting them to a vet.
On the day of our first Pet First Aid course we had a very varied group of attendees which was great to see! We had professional dog walker, a dog fosterer, a therapy dog owner, a student hoping to study to become a vet plus a whole host of pet lovers. Our trainer for the course was Kevin Harrison, he is ex fire fighter and has over 20 years experience of First Aid Training here in Kent and all over the country. Pet First Aid is not dissimilar to Human First Aid, however there are the obvious differences; Would you know how or where to check your dog or cats pulse? How do you perform CPR? How can I transport my pet to the vet in the most comfortable way? Do I need a dedicated Pet First Aid kit?
If you would like to know the answers to these questions plus a whole host of information then book on to attend one of our up coming Pet First Aid courses here in our Training room in Strood, Kent. The course is on a Saturday morning and runs for approximately 4 hours, from 10am to 2pm.
Here is what some of our attendees said about the courses:
“The course was very informative regarding pet first aid and covered a wide range of potential issues from general pet care through to CPR. The atmosphere was very friendly and relaxed which made the course fun and enjoyable. I would recommend it to any pet owners, especially dogs and cats.”
