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.
