Many pet emergencies occur outside and even far from a veterinarian’s office.
And usually the first person on the scene is you…
So, would you know what to do if your pet was in a medical crisis situation?

According to the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), 92% of dogs and cats will experience an emergency in their lifetime, and 1 out of 4 pets would survive if just one pet first aid technique was applied prior to getting emergency veterinary care.

Pet first aid is the immediate care given to a pet that is suddenly ill or injured until it can be transported to a veterinarian for medical attention. Knowing these skills and techniques can make a difference between life and death—giving your pet a fighting chance to survive.

You will learn:

  • How to conduct a primary assessment in an emergency situation
  • How to safely restrain and muzzle an ill or injured pet
  • The skills of canine and feline CPR and rescue breathing
  • How to manage choking, bleeding, and shock incidents
  • Heat and cold injury protocols
  • Action steps for insect bites, stings, and snake bites
  • The daily Snout-To-Tail™ wellness assessment to gauge your pet’s health vitals
  • How to prepare a pet first aid kit
  • How to improve communication with your vet, pet care professionals, pet parents, and community
  • And much more!
