First Aid Course

Would you know what to do in an emergency?

Many of us enjoy our beautiful countryside, beaches, lakes and just getting away from the crowds with our four legged friends – we certainly do, infact we have some recommendations on where to go, but what if you are out and your pet suffers from a cut paw, chokes on a gravy bone or worse still a full on emergency?

No one wants to feel helpless in this situation which is why we are very excited to offer our own Pet First Aid courses.

On our course you will cover a wide range of topics from how to perform a basic health assessment on your pet right through to dealing with emergencies and administering CPR.

Our fun and practical courses run for approximately 5 hours and include course notes, practical sessions on both models and live animals all under the watchful guidance of our fully qualified staff – and of course there will be refreshments!

Just some of the topics and situations you will cover:

Courses cost £50 (10% off if you are one of our health plan members) and are limited to groups of ten.

There are currently the following course dates scheduled:

  • January 12th 2019

This course is not intended to replace the advice of a Veterinary Surgeon and therefore veterinary advice should always be sought as soon as possible.

In an emergency, where no veterinary surgeon is immediately available to give advice and guidance, the lay person (Person who is not an expert in a given field of knowledge) has the right to administer first aid treatment to an animal providing that it will only be a temporary measure until veterinary advice is immediately sought, the treatment administered should be designed to preserve life, alleviate suffering and to prevent the situation worsening. If the situation is traumatic and requires surgery, it must be pointed out that: Under the terms of the Veterinary Act 1966 no person is allowed to practice veterinary surgery unless registered in the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons or in the supplementary register of Veterinary Practitioners.
