Do you know what to do in the event of a pet emergency?
The Dayton Emergency Veterinary Clinic is teaming up with the Dayton Area Chapter of the American Red Cross to offer a pet first aid course. The course will provide basic information on recognizing and responding in emergencies, illnesses and injuries in dogs and cats.
Basic Pet First Aid for Dogs and Cats includes learning how to rescue breathe for your pet, CPR and care for choking pets, and first aid for bleeding, fractures, poisonings and illness. For
life-threatening emergencies, you need to get your pet to the veterinarian or emergency clinic as soon as possible BUT knowing the immediate appropriate response in an emergency can help save their life.
The course is being offered May 22, 2010, from 9AM to 1 PM at the Dayton Emergency Veterinary Clinic, 2714 Springboro Pike West, Moraine, OH 45439. The cost of the course is $45.00, and the proceeds go to the Red Cross Emergency Response Department, enabling them to respond to those in the community with house fires, flooding, etc. The cost includes a 116-page dog or cat first aid book, containing an alphabetical first aid reference Guide and a DVD.
Call Heidi at 293-2714 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for reservations; the class size is limited to the first 30 registrants; appropriate age is 12 years or older.
Refreshments and snacks will be provided compliments of the Dayton EVC; please do not bring pets to the class.
