This intensive 2-hour online webinar will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to help dogs when emergency strikes. Anyone with dogs in their care, be it personally or professionally, need to keep them safe, healthy, and happy. Part of this is knowing exactly what to do should the dog have an accident, illness or injury.

First Aid isn’t an alternative to professional veterinary care, but in an emergency, having these skills can be the difference between life and death. In just 2 hours this online Canine First Aid Webinar will take you through the entire concept of First Aid for dogs, including the principles and main purpose of First Aid.

You will explore the different injuries and illnesses that can occur, and what you need to do in each situation.

These include:

  • Broken limbs
  • Choking
  • Drowning
  • Electrocution
  • Heat stroke
  • Heavy bleeding
  • Hypothermia
  • Resuscitation
  • Road traffic accidents
  • Shock

You will also learn ways of transporting an injured dog, bandaging and muzzle application. In addition to this, you will be introduced to common sources of poison in the home and garden, bites, stings, and fits. To help you be resourceful in any situation, you will be taught how to improvise and make a stretcher, splint, muzzle and restraint out of everyday materials.
