Course Content

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

Our training is vastly superior in that we provide hands-on skills practice (no "Death

by PowerPoint" or video) with a "real world" approach to pet emergency care. The training features a focus on hands-on skills practice to build muscle memory thereby ensuring proficiency and retention of the life saving skills taught. Experience the difference of  being taught by an instructor with 25+ years experience in pre-hospital emergency medical care who has "been there, done that" having administered these

life saving skills to two and four legged patients in "the real world".

There is no substitute for real world experience!
