Why Cats and Dogs First Aid together?

First aid is the immediate care given to a pet who has been injured or is suddenly taken ill.

The vast majority of first aid treatment is universal and matters not whether we are treating a cat, dog, rabbit or any other furry friend but there are differences in areas such as CPR, as much as there are differences in CPR depending on breed and size, so there is no reason to dedicate a first aid course just for dogs or just for cats …they can sit together

Cat and Dog First Aid Course Duration


Minimum of four hours.

However, if we are coming to you and there is just one or two people, we can naturally shave an hour or so off the course because of the low number. However, we do not shave off quality nor do we cut corners.

Cat and Dog First Aid Training is delivered in a friendly manner and environment with comfort breaks and refreshments. We ask you to provide Tea, coffee, soft drink and biscuits – if time is of the essence, we can skip a break or two! – It’s your course! We just don’t skip topics.
