First aid and emergency care for your pet

Would you know what to do if your pet was in a life threatening situation?  Accidents happen in the blink of an eye and knowledge of basic first aid could mean all the difference to your pet. 

During this course you will learn how to apply first aid in a variety of situations, transport your pet safely, be able to recognise what constitutes an emergency situation and learn how to react to it accordingly. 

We will cover the most commonly known toxicities and types of trauma as well as some of the less common to ensure that you are well versed in providing first aid in a range of situations. 

The facilitator of this course is a highly experienced emergency care Veterinary Nurse and Nurse Educator.
