How To 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 Clifton Park 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

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.
If you want to learn more about such training available in Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga and Schenectady counties check online with Hudson Valley Community College in Troy, NY at  and The American Red Cross for the same information › take-a-class › first-aid › cat-dog-first-aid
And don’t forget to create a Pet Emergency Evacuation Plan — another important and potentially life-saving strategy to teach the entire family. Pet evacuation during a natural disaster or fire can mean the difference between life and death, too, for you and your pets. Be sure to post tags in several visible spots such as the interior front door and window pane facing outdoors listing the pets who reside with you for firefighters or other first responders.
