Why Cats and Dogs First Aid together?
CPR of catsFirst aid is the immediate care given to a pet who has been injured or is suddenly taken ill. The vast majority of first aid treatment is universal and matters not whether we are treating a cat, dog, rabbit or any other furry friend but there are differenes in areas such as CPR, as much as there are differences in CPR depending on breed and size, so there is no reason to dedicate a first aid course just for dogs or just for cats …they can sit together

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

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.
