Pet First Aid
This one day seminar gives the pet owner information needed to deal with a pet medical emergency. Part of first aid knowledge is deciding what is an emergency and what can be treated with first aid care.
The Red Cross Emergency Pet First Aid class teaches how to provide immediate care for an injured animal until the pet can be taken to a veterinarian for professional medical care.
No dogs attend this class–it’s for owners only!
This class is taught on a Sunday, from 11 am to 4 pm, four times a year. The cost of this course is $75.
The next upcoming class is Sunday, April 2, 2017.
Class size is limited, so pre-registration is encouraged!
