With input from more than 400 U.S. Veterinarians, Pets America has developed a comprehensive Pet First Aid & Disaster Response Workshop that offers expert guidance on everyday pet emergencies as well as how to prepare for and respond to disaster situations.
This certification course teaches CPR, the Heimlich maneuver for pets, and how to deal with the most common pet emergencies such as bite wounds, cuts to pads, and sudden illnesses. Participants learn to recognize early warning signs of illness, tips on preventing health problems, how to stay safe while helping an injured pet, and how to assemble pet first aid and disaster kits. There are also opportunities to practice CPR skills on life-like pet mannequins.
Please do NOT bring your pet to class. However, we'd love for you to bring photos to share!
