"This is a great course for pet shop teams, groomers, Veterinary receptionists or anyone working with animals.
It is really practical with lots of great common sense advice and reassurance and would be very useful for pet owners too.
Anyone who has done this course should feel much more confident in dealing with minor mishaps and in knowing when situations are more serious and when and how urgently to contact the Vet."

Why do we need first aid training
Just like people, animals have accidents and like people, the better the first aid administered the more likely an individual is to survive the accident. However, would you know how to care for your cat or dog in a first aid situation? For most people, the answer would be no!
For pet owners and the professionals who take the day to day care of their animals, it is essential that first aid skills are learned, understood and practiced so that in the event of an emergency someone can administer life-saving first aid to a beloved pet.
To ensure the public and pet professionals, have the very best training available, Jacqui Molyneux, a fellow of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, has spent 24 months devising a training course to allow everyone access to the very best, most up to date, information. Advice and training that will prepare anyone to administer emergency first aid to a dog, in a huge range of situations. The information given is clear and concise and above all honest so that anyone knows what to do, or what they cannot do (to dispel old wives tales) to give the best possible outcome for a pet in need.
