Pet Owners First Aid

Kerry Stubbs

South East & Kent

As an experienced Registered Veterinary Nurse I have come across numerous situations where owners & pet professionals have been left wondering if there was something else they could have done during a traumatic event involving either their own pet or one they have been entrusted to look after.

We all want to do the best for our animals and within my profession is it paramount to everything I do within it, the animal always comes first. It is because of this that I decided to write an animal first aid course for like minded people who own or look after dogs and cats using my experience, knowledge and training.

An accredited & certified animal first aid course directed at pet owners & pet professionals i.e. dog groomers, dog walkers, boarders & anyone working within the domestic pet industry.
The course is certified by CPD UK (offering 6 hours CPD) & accredited by AMTRA (offering 14 points) & Canine Hydrotherapy Association (refresher first aid courses offering 6 hours CPD).  The course meets NARCH requirements.

In a relaxed environment in groups of a maximum of 12 people you will learn how to deal with a wide variety of scenarios that can affect animals within your care.
