Pet First Aid Training from Lightning Training Solutions

The focus of all of our Pet First Aid Courses is being able to identify when something is not right with a pet as well as being able to act accordingly in an emergency situation before you get to the vet.

We'll also look at ways to avoid certain accidents before they happen at Lightning Training Solutions. Delegates should leave with the knowledge and confidence that they can assist in preventing, identifying, and taking the proper action in the event of a pet emergency.

Common Pet Emergencies

Our Pet First Aid Courses cover common pet emergencies including:

  • Heatstroke in dogs - what are the symptoms, how to treat and avoid it?
  • Choking in dogs and cats - learn the Heimlich maneuver for animals
  • Bleeding - how to control bleeding and shock in pets
  • CPR - when is it necessary
  • Bites & wounds - how to clean and dress a wound
  • Eye injuries - how to flush an eye and apply an eye pad
  • Burns - how to treat burns in pets
  • Seizures - what to do if your pet has a seizure
  • Fractures - splinting techniques for different fractures

Our courses will teach you how to deal with these and other emergencies should they arise. Call us today to book a course.
