Be Prepared for Pet Emergencies
If your pet got injured would you be able to administer basic life-saving care that could mean the difference between life and death?
First Aid and CPR training classes are both offered online and in person regularly in most US cities and states and are open to just about anyone. Every pet owner should consider getting this training as another way to safeguard their precious four-legged family members from potential emergencies and dangers.
And for anyone who works with pets in a primarily non-medical role – such as dog walkers and pet-sitters — Pet Lifesaving certification certainly gives you an edge in the pet care marketplace, according to the folks at Care.com <http://care.com/>. https://www.care.com/c/stories/6355/get-trained-in-pet-first-aid-and-cpr/.
Classes are usually offered by veterinarians and vet techs who teach lifesaving techniques geared for cats, dogs and even some exotic pets. The American Red Cross offers pet lifesaving training as part of its Emergency Preparedness programs. http://www.redcross.org/get-help/prepare-for-emergencies/types-of-emergencies/pet-safety#About.
