Preventable accidents are the leading cause of death among pre-senior dogs and cats. That’s why canine professionals and pet parents alike should always be prepared to handle any emergency that may arise. In this 4 hour PetTech® certification workshop, students learn and practice what to do in a variety of emergency situations.
Topics include primary pet assessment, rescue breathing, CPR, choking management, and bleeding protocols. Students also learn the “Snout-to-Tail” assessment for wellness and injury, and what supplies to put in an effective pet first aid kit.
Class is taught by a certified PetTech® instructor and consists of a combination of lecture and hands-on application of concepts. Students who complete the workshop successfully receive PetTech® certification for CPR and first aid, which is valid for 2 years.
