Pet First Aid Course

Could you save your best friend in an emergency?

Your beloved canine companion has cut their paw on some broken glass and is bleeding heavily – What do you do?

Your faithful feline is choking and unable to breathe – What do you do?

Just like humans, pets can easily injure themselves or become ill but they depend entirely on their owners to act quickly to potentially save their life before veterinary treatment is obtained.

To give pet owners the skills and confidence to administer emergency first aid, AWL’s resident veterinarian Dr Alison will be running informative and hands-on pet first aid classes at the AWL’s Wingfield shelter. Each 2 hour class will include in-depth training in accident prevention, what to do in trauma emergencies and safe restraint and transportation of your pet in an emergency plus much more!

The AWL offers a great price of $60 for Dr Alison’s Emergency First Aid class PLUS all attendees will be presented with a free St John’s Pet First Aid Kit valued at $19.95 and a take home emergency guide.

ONLY $60.00
