What will I learn in a pet first aid course?
Our pet first aid courses are built to empower pet owners and pet pros to feel confident acting in case of various medical emergencies. Our information covers adult cats and dogs. Each topic is discussed in steps: 1.defining the medical emergency 2.how to recognize it 3.how to prevent it (if possible) 4.how to treat it 5.what to expect at the vet. Check out each courses syllabus on their respective pages. Our courses do not cover every possible medical condition. Students should triage their pets based on information provided, their best judgment and common sense and understand that disease physiology is complex. A veterinarian is the ultimate source of information for pet health.
Will I be certified in pet first aid & CPR?
Pet owners will receive a certificate of completion. Each level of Pet Professional course require a passing grade of 80% or more to receive certificate. All certificates are good for two years at which point we recommend re-taking the course to stay up-to-date on information and skills.
