PET FIRST AID FACT: Pets may naturally hide illness and injury so they can maintain their social standing and not appear weak. Learning how to quickly recognize a pet experiencing a medical emergency and the proper first aid actions to take can make the difference in not only the pain and suffering the animal experiences, but also may impact the need or cost of hospitalization.
We provide public and private pet first aid & CPR training classes for individual professional pet handlers, pet industry businesses, animal welfare groups, and responsible pet parents of all ages. Through 6 hours of hands on practice, interactive training, live animal demonstration, and the latest science based curriculum, you will gain the skills to recognize and respond to any dog or cat having an emergency.
Public Pet First Aid & CPR training classes are regularly held in the southeast Michigan area. Our public classroom is less than 60 minutes from the Detroit, Ann Arbor and Toledo areas with easy highway access. If our public class location or dates are not convenient, please contact us and request a class in your area. We do take our class on the road!
All class participants may elect to test their knowledge through our 40+ question logic based certification exam. A score of 80% or higher earns you a signed certificate, allows for listing in our directory of certified providers (under construction), use of the Registered Emergency Animal Lifesaver logo and title, and the necessary support and training to keep you up to date on the latest scientific changes in emergency pet care.
