Recently, I attended a Pet First Aid and CPR course to acquire knowledge of life-saving techniques in the event of a pet emergency.  Arden Moore, a master instructor with Pet Tech, the premier pet first aid/CPR and wellness program provider, delivered the course.  Not only was it both engaging and highly informative, it also taught the most currently recommended practices for responding to a critically injured pet.

Among the topics covered, we learned how to first assess an emergency situation, administer rescue breathing and cardiopulmonary resuscitation, respond to a choking animal that is both conscious or unconscious, manage bleeding, what to do in the case of poisoning, insect bites/stings and snakebites, and responding to heat-related injuries.  The most outstanding attribute of the class was that it was hands-on, giving us real applied knowledge and time to practice what to do in each situation.

Minutes count in saving a pet’s life in an emergency.  So even though I learned the best course of action in each situation, I realize that nothing is more important than to get our four-legged loved ones to their vet or other animal hospital as quickly as possible.

This course had an indelible impact on my life as a pet care professional.  I highly recommend this training to others in our line of work.  Knowing how to properly respond in a pet emergency is a must!  Pet Tech rocks!
