Canine First Aid Course Information
Whether you are a dog owner or a professional working with dogs, having a good understanding of canine first aid and how to administer emergency treatment is essential.
This course covers the objectives and rules of first aid, what should be included in a first aid kit and in creating a safe environment. It also shows methods of improvising items such as muzzles, stretchers and splints and explains how to carry or restrain injured animals.
The course includes drowning, vomiting and diarrhoea, poisoning, what should be in your first aid kit, and medical emergencies such as bloat. The course also covers burns, bites and stings, shock, electrocution, choking, how to administer CPR including checking a dogs pulse and breathing.
We take a look at various types of fits, hyperthermia and hypothermia and how to restrain and bandage an injured dog and various options for carrying an injured dog. You will practice various dressings for different types of injury.
First Aid actions are only the initial responses to an emergency and should not be thought of as the only actions to take that will ensure the dog’s welfare. At the end of the training day, participants will work through various emergency scenarios practising what to do in the event of an emergency.
