About the course

The course has been designed for pet professionals, fulfilling continuing professional development (CPD) requirements. However, it is suitable for pet owners too.

This course concentrates on the dog although many of the first aid principles apply to other mammals too as the body systems work in a very similar way.

By the end of the course you should be able to:

  1. Recognise a range of First aid situations.
  2. Be able to carry out a safe assessment of the animal.
  3. Be able to respond to a range of first aid situations.
  4. Have the confidence to carry out basic first aid treatments whilst waiting for veterinary attention.

The course is not designed to replace veterinary treatment.

 
  • THE COURSE RECOGNISES THAT THE VETERINARY SURGEONS ACT 1966 RESTRICTS THE DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OF AN ANIMAL BY ANOTHER PERSON OTHER THAN A QUALIFIED AND REGISTERED VETERINARY SURGEON. HOWEVER ANY LAY PERSON CAN CARRY OUT FIRST AID IN AN EMERGENCY SITUATION.
  • FOR ALL FIRST AID CASES, A VETERINARY SURGEON SHOULD BE CONTACTED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
