New Course, coming soon …

A short one or two part course covering first aid techniques on dogs

Why Dog First Aid? Because unlike other pets, dogs travel with us pretty much everywhere we go. Incidents away from home, walking in the countryside, road traffic injuries may need immediate action prior to getting a vet. The vet ambulance does not come to you!

Course content is based on current veterinary practice.

Part one includes: Know your dog; weekly health checks; scene safety; managing an incident; checking vital signs; CPR; drowning; choking; blood loss and shock; restraints and carries; first aid kits.

Part two includes: Bandaging practice; injury management; common illness and medical problems; burns, poisons, bites and stings; heat and cold; dog bites on humans; first aid kits. Plus brief consideration of use of flower remedies and homeopathic remedies.

Please Note: NO dogs to be brought to the course. Dummy dogs will be provided for practice.

Approx cost (depending on venue and numbers):

Part one as one 3+ hour evening session: £30 max

Part one and two booked together (two full evenings):  only £55

Full day £55

Fees include certificate of attendance and dog first aid manual
