What is the course content?

Those vital moments prior to getting to a vet can save your cat or dogs life.

The correct course of action taken immediately after a cat or dog has been involved in an accident or suffered from sudden sickness can save its life.Advanced canine first aid courses

Although accidents and events happen instantly and without warning, an illness may been present for some time but only discovered and suddenly become an emergency.

Cats and dogs cannot communicate verbally and explain how they feel or what has happened to them. However they do have indications and signs that may reveal vital information that could help you to determine a course of action.

Is your cat or dog breathing?

Is its heart beating?

Is it bleeding?

Is its temperature normal?

Is it behaving abnormally?

Would you know what to do if your cat or dog suddenly became ill or sustained injury?

Would you know how to administer first aid, including CPR on a cat or dog?

Can you treat a badly cut and bleeding paw?

If your cat or dog is injured as a result of a fight, would you be confident enough to provide emergency first aid prior to taking the pet to your vet?

Should you move them and risk spinal injury?

Our cat and dog first aid courses are not boring ‘chalk and talk’ sessions, they are fun, hands-on, you will learn essential things such as bandaging ..it may sound easy!

Dealing with severe bleeding and nasty broken bones. Deep puncture wounds and embedded objects.

Restraining a cat for medication and treatment.

No matter how calm and friendly a dog is under normal conditions, when in pain and distressed they will bite! so we will deal with handling this situation.

  • The course is approximately four hours with a half hour break and costs £50 per person.

 

removing embedded items from a dog
We use training aids that represent nasty and traumatic wounds to learn about cleaning, packing and dressing.

We have a selection of nasty traumatic training aids that represent incisions, lacerations, puncture wounds, stabbings, embedded objects, open fractures, bites and stings, ulcers etc.

These are designed to assist in training to treat and bandage wounds prior to taking the animal to the vet.

Our first aid cat and dog first aid courses are about managing a scene, treating an injured animal and getting to the vets as fast as possible.

Delivering an injured animal to a vet in a far better condition that if no first aid has been used is the prime objection.

I completed this course in November 2016 as I needed to refresh my pet first aid. It was very informative with lots of hands on practice on life like veterinary mannequins. Peter the tutor has lots of knowledge and teaches pet first aid with a good sense of humour (be ready for the bad jokes)! Very enjoyable day and well worth the money.
