Tech Seminar: Pet CPR and First Aid
This course will begin with teaching basic pet CPR, including practicing techniques on CPR manikins for cats and dogs. This course will also cover various first aid techniques, triage from the front desk all the way to the kennel, and how to handle certain situations in the veterinary clinic. You will learn how to make a first aid kit for yourself and how to guide your clients to be prepared for emergency situations. Fear free training on how to approach injured animals will also be discussed. By the end of this seminar, you will have a strong handle on first aid and triage and receive a certification in CPR and first aid!
