It's 11 PM on a Sunday let your pet out for the final walk of the night. Suddenly you hear a commotion outside and your pet returns covered in blood  after being attacked by a raccoon. Your vet's office is closed, the animal emergency hospital is ten miles away and your pet is bleeding profusely...

There is no Pet 9-1-1...


Do YOU know how to help your pet in an emergency?

A medical emergency or traumatic injury suffered by your 

pet can be life threatening - unlike their human counterparts, you cannot simply dial 9-1-1 to get help in the event of an emergency. Veterinary medical offices typically maintain normal business hours and even animal emergency hospitals can be miles an emergency, Every Second Counts!! 


Learn the vital skills needed to help your pet in an  an emergency, provide life saving treatment and safeguard them against further injury prior to reaching definitive veterinary medical care. Paws N Claws 911 is owned and operated by a thirty year seasoned provider of pre-hospital emergency medical services. A lifelong dog lover and owner, Tom has taken his vast education, training and field experience as a veteran pre-hospital emergency medical care provider and educator treating two legged patients to four legged patients, by adapting his highly interactive, hands-on teaching style to educate pet parents, pet care professionals and others in the techniques of Pet CPR and First Aid. Experience the difference of an instructor who has "been there, done that" having administered these life saving techniques to two and four legged patients in an emergency. There is no substitute for real world experience!!    

This training is designed for anyone with an interest in "pawtecting" the safety and wellness of canine/feline pets.  

The course content is delivered through a combination of lecture, demonstration and hands-on skills practice.

With a focus on hands-on skills practice to ensure proficiency and retention of the life saving skills taught, this 

training is geared for Pet Parents, Pet Care Professionals (Groomer, Sitter/Walker, Vet Tech, Kennel Staff), Animal Rescue Volunteers and First Responders (NO prior training or experience is needed). Classes can be taught

almost anywhere including your home, office/place of business, school, animal shelter, firehouse or group meeting.
