About this course

Certified classroom pet first aid course

The content of the classroom course has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) The course is based primarily on dogs, (bearing in mind “Modern dog breeds show more variation in size, appearance, and behaviour than any other domestic animal”) with some reference made to Cats and other common smaller pets. Our Furry friends can be very curious and unfortunately accidents do happen. Just as it’s important to provide food, attention and toys, it’s also important to be able to help your pet in an emergency situation.
