Who should take Pet First Aid?
Anyone that has a pet in their care! The comprehensive Walks ’N’ Wags course is designed to give pet owners and caregivers the information, confidence, and practical experience needed to deal with injuries and emergencies. We hope you'll never have to use some aspects of the course - but if you need to; you will be ready!
We offer the Walks 'N' Wags pet first aid courses to the public on a regular basis. We firmly believe that knowing how to care for your pet in an emergency is as important as knowing how to care for any other family member.
Private courses can be arranged for 4 or more people. Group rates apply. For more information or email Purrs and Paws.
We Teach the Walks ’N’ Wags Pet First Aid Course!
The Walks 'N' Wags Pet First Aid course is the longest standing in Canada. You get 10 hours of fun while learning how to be a first aid responder for your cat or dog in an emergency. The course also focuses on prevention and emergency treatment. We always have a demonstration pet with us for practice, and well behaved pets are welcome with the understanding that the owner is responsible for their behaviour in class. You receive a comprehensive manual, created with input from veterinarians, a quick guide, and a certificate on passing the exam. Not to mention LOTS of knowledge and practical work on a real wiggly pet.
Topics include (along with many more):
Artificial Respiration and CPR
Bleeding and wounds
Recognizing and preventing illness
Bone and joint injuries
Parasites and poisons
