What does the course involve?

Our ‘Pet First Aid’ workshop provides 4-6 hours training.

The focus for the day is on being able to identify when something isn’t right with a pet and being able to act accordingly in an emergency situation before you get to the vet.  We’ll also take a look at how you can prevent some emergencies from occurring in the first place.  Delegates will leave with knowledge on how to prevent, identify and take the appropriate action in the case of an emergency.

It is delivered by our Community and Education Vet Nurses through a mixture of:

  • Facilitator led theory work
  • Group discussion
  • Case studies
  • Video examples
  • Practical exercises

At the end of the course you will be able to test your knowledge on what you’ve learnt by completing our online quiz.  You have 7 days and 3 attempts to pass the quiz, once you’ve done that we’ll email your course certificate to you.

You can find all the information you need about each course on the individual events.
