Certification awarded

PLATTSBURGH — Deidre Berman of Canine Adventure LLC of Plattsburgh has been awarded the Pet Professional Guide’s (PPG) Pet First Aid Certificate of Competence. PPG is a member organization founded on the principles of force-free training and pet care.

According to PPG President Niki Tudge, “Having pet first-aid skills is fundamental to our industry and to the PPG’s guiding principles. Everyone can benefit from learning some basic first aid, and earning this certificate of competence not only demonstrates the member’s skill and knowledge but also shows a commitment to the pet industry profession. Our new program is very comprehensive requiring the PPG member to pass a rigorous knowledge and practical examination in order to earn the certification.”

The American Red Cross and the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) have recommend that all pet caregivers learn pet first-aid skills to help keep animals safe and healthy. Pet owners and professionals that are trained in pet first-aid measures and proper life-saving techniques are better prepared to handle routine and life-threatening emergencies when they occur.

“Our PPG First Aid Program has been developed by a certified veterinary technician in accordance with American Veterinary Medical Association guidelines and teaches the basic skills and procedures that may possibly save a pet’s life by providing the knowledge to administer basic treatment to a sick or injured animal until professional veterinarian help is available,” Tudge said.
