Give yourself the peace of mind every responsible pet owner needs

Learning pet first aid is all part of being a responsible pet owner, and this short course will give you good all-round pet first aid skills in six manageable modules. This course, which leads to a Pet First Aid certificate, is also a smart investment for anyone who works with pets regularly, from dog walkers to those providing holiday care for cherished pets.

What Will I Learn?

On completion of this course you’ll have a varied skillset in pet first aid, from basic CPR, to how to treat burns, to spotting the signs of dehydration. You’ll also understand more about anatomy, how to examine pets at home and the importance of proper veterinary care.

Why Should I Invest?
