This veterinary approved and accredited online course is suitable for dog owners or pet professionals, e.g. dog walkers, vet nurses, groomers, dog carers, dog trainers/behaviourists, etc, fulfilling continuing professional development (CPD) requirements. Covering a range of topics with video demonstrations, downloads to keep, tutor help if you need it and a final accredited course certificate.
What you’ll learn:
- To recognise and respond to a range of first aid situations.
- To carry out a safe assessment of the dog.
- To respond to a range of first aid situations.
- To carry out basic first aid treatments whilst waiting for veterinary attention.
- Basic principles, safe handling, up-to-date CPR and much more (see syllabus below).
This course concentrates on the dog although many of the first aid principles apply to other mammals too as the body systems work in a very similar way.
At the end of the course you’ll obtain your Accredited Certificate in Canine First Aid, which like human first aid, I recommend that you refresh your skills every three years. This is because research is being conducted continually and so procedures change over time. A refresher course will be available soon.
2. For all first aid cases, a veterinary surgeon should be contacted as soon as possible.
Online Course Content
A comprehensive online course to refresh my canine first aid knowledge. During lockdown, many organisations offered their 1st aid courses online but P.E.T. offered a competitively priced course which could be taken and resumed at your own pace. The videos and downloadable resources are high quality and I would highly recommend.
Brilliant, thank you. This is a really thorough course. Due to the lockdown, I was unable to to attend a classroom training course. I looked at several online courses before I chose this one but I am so pleased that I did. It was interesting, very well explained, the video clips were very good. I will use this site for further courses.
This first aid course is excellent, and very comprehensive. I found it easy to navigate and I liked the idea that you could save progress as you went along, meaning that you could study at your own pace. The Video tutorials were clear and informative. I like that there are downloads and printouts to keep on file for future use.
