Pet First Aid - Online Learning

Their dinner sometimes looks better than yours, their toys are taking over the house and your partner complains you have more photos of them (hey, they are way cuter).

Your pet relies on you and you’d be devastated if something happened to them. Pet First Aid is a short online course that will make sure you are ready to respond to emergencies like wounds, toxic reactions, heat stroke, seizures, critter bites and cardiac arrest.

You’ll learn how to prevent common issues and how to apply first aid to your dog or cat in a variety of situations if something does go wrong.
