Free pet first aid course for pet owners in Nottingham

12 October 2017

Would you know what to do in an emergency situation facing your pet?

Thanks to generous funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery, we’re running a free pet first aid course for pet owners in Nottingham.

The course will be split over three sessions, with people able to attend one or all three if they wish.

The first session will cover heatstroke, bandaging and bloat, and will be held on Tuesday, 17 October, at our Nottingham Pet Hospital in Dunkirk Road between 6pm and 7.30pm.

Further sessions will take place at the same venue between 6pm and 7.30pm on 24 October, covering poisonings and seizures; and 31 October when participants will learn what to do if a pet is choking, as well as pet CPR.

PDSA vet nurse, Kaya Hawrylak, said: “Would you be prepared in the event of an emergency with your pet?

“If not, don’t panic and come along to our first aid course to learn how to keep your pet safe. Thanks to funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery we’re able to teach pet owners the skills needed to care for an injured pet to prevent further injury before they can be seen by a vet.”

The course involves a mixture of theoretical and practical aspects as well as opportunities for group discussion. All participants will receive a certificate of attendance.

We’re also holding another course on 28 November and 5 December at Queens Pavilion, Queens Park, Nottingham, between 9am and 12pm on both days.

Places are limited for both courses so for more information or to book, contact Kaya on 07825 193 501 or email
