This Weekend: Pet First Aid and CPR Class

By Valerie K. Kane, HSSV Volunteer

Do you know what to do if your pet is suddenly injured or suffers a medical emergency? I know that I don’t, so I’m glad to see HSSV is sponsoring another practical, useful class for pet owners: Pet First Aid and CPR.

In this class, Diane Troup from A Dog’s Life will teach techniques that could save a pet’s life, including controlling bleeding, applying bandages, treating shock and performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Students will also take home an easy-to-use first aid book and a go-anywhere first aid kit.

The Pet First Aid and CPR class will be held on Saturday, August 28 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm in Classroom B of the HSSV Animal Community Center. I plan to attend and I’m looking forward to feeling much more confident and knowledgeable about handling a medical emergency with my dog, Tosha, or the other companion animals I interact with. If you’d like to join me, there’s still time to register; just click here.
