Dog First Aid
Would you know what to to if your dog required immediate Emergency treatment?
Knowing how to provide First Aid may mean the difference between life and death for your beloved pet.
Many dog behaviours can get them into trouble including scavenging for inappropriate foods (and other things !), roaming, resource guarding etc.
You will learn how to identify an Emergency Situation and how to keep yourself safe.
We will teach you what your dogs normal vital signs should be and what to look for if your dog is sick or injured.
You will learn how to check your dog’s respiration rate, mucous membranes, capillary refill time, heartrate and temperature.
You will know when and how to use a pressure bandage for a snake bite and a pad and pressure bandage to stop bleeding. You will practice making a donut bandage to stabilise a penetrating wound and a Robert Jones bandage to restrict limb movement of a fracture.
You will know what to do in the event of a burn, poisoning and shock…and much more!
This course is taught as a team effort with a registered Veterinary Nurse who can answer any (tricky?) technical questions you may have.
First Aid courses are run twice yearly. It is a 3 hour course which includes hands-on practice, notes and morning tea.
