Nobody wants to imagine the worst but our furry friends can be very curious and accidents can and do happen at any time and when we least expect them. So, just as it’s important to provide food, companionship and toys, it’s also important to help your pet in an emergency situation.

This course is designed to give you the confidence, knowledge and skills to enable you to give life saving first aid to your pet in an emergency situation, prior to attending your veterinary surgery.
