K9 CPR & FIRST AID
K9 Class: The K9 First Aid and CPR course is designed to give the pet lover, dog sport enthusiast or pet professional the necessary information and skills to stabilize an injured animal until qualified veterinarian care is accessed.
Whether you are new to dog ownership or a long time friend, EMS provider, have a puppy, or care for a senior dog, own a purebred or a mixed breed from the shelter; regardless of your situation, your dog is precious to you. You only want the best for your dog, just like you want the best for every member of your family.
Since 2009, We have developed and have and taught over 1750 dog lovers a fun and educational K9 first aid class that is designed to be taught at any location. Since there is no 911 for dogs, it is our intention to close that gap. In short, we take our world of paramedicine and show students how to apply it to dogs.
One thing the class gives to the students is confidence. Confidence that no matter what the situation involving their dog, they will be able to provide care that will help for the best possible outcome. That alone can be priceless.
We use actual Canine CPR manikins where people actually preform “mouth to snout” breathing and compressions. The class content covers over 20 First Aid items including: first aid kits, torn pads, dog fights, seizures, broken bones, electrical injuries, muzzling, and bleeding control and appropriate restraining of an injured animal. There is special attention to choking, bloat, and poisons.
There are several hands-on-type skills, and the relaxed, open format is very conducive for learning. Since the material is paramedic-based, you can even use your new-found skills on humans (if you want to that is!). During class each person gets a class participation packet, and will receive a pet first aid certificate at no charge. The card is valid for life, and with the card, students may take the class at no charge anytime in the future.
Hope to see you soon.
