Pet First Aid Classes
Wouldn't you like to do all that you can to have a healthy, happy puppy? Wouldn't it be nice to stay calm and know what to do when your pet has an accident or illness?
You can prevent medical issues and prepare for emergency situations by taking a Pet First Aid class. Pet First Aid is different than people first aid, because dogs and cats can't tell you what's wrong, they have teeth that they're not scared to use, and, if you call, an ambulance won't come. The more prevention you can practice, and the more prepared you can be for emergency, the better.

The course is designed to give pet lovers the information and skills needed to stabilize injured animals until qualified veterinary care can be accessed. The emphasis is on preventing illness and injury, the importance of early veterinary care, and the appropriate restraining of injured animals. Skills are practiced on live animals and students are encouraged to bring pets, when they are healthy, up-to-date on vaccinations, and get along well with people and other animals.
You will learn:
· preventing illness and injury
· restraint and transportation
· bleeding and wounds
· bone and joint injuries
· eye and ear injuries
· medical conditions
· injuries from heat and cold
· whelping and queening
· administering medication
· airway obstruction
· artificial respiration
· cardiopulmonary resuscitation
· dealing with grief
The course is administered across North America by Walks 'N' Wags of Vancouver and was originally developed in 1993 by Nurse Ethne Dickinson of Oakland Educational Services and her pet advisory group consisting of Veterinarians and others in Alberta's animal care industry. This is the only comprehensive pet first aid course available in Canada, and Louise is the most experienced instructor in Saskatchewan - teaching since 2002.
Group bookings are also available for community colleges, police dog handlers, veterinary clinic staff and service groups by contacting K-Lane Kennels at 306.781.2774 or email@example.com.
Note to registrants:
Students are responsible for their animal during the course. Pets must be healthy and current on vaccinations. If your pet is crate trained, please feel free to bring the crate - it will come in handy when you and your pet want a break. Remember to bring a water dish and a camera!
