Course Information

It is impossible to predict when you may be presented with an emergency
situation either with your own, or with someone else’s dog. By having basic
canine first aid skills, you will be able to provide a dog with vital care
needed in the first 10 to 15 minutes of an injury or medical emergency.


This in turn, means very often a dog can be presented at a veterinary
practice in a more stable condition allowing for a much more positive
outcome.
