Canine & Pet First Aid

Would you know what to do in an emergency?


Our Canine & Pet First Aid courses ensure you are able to help provide basic first aid in an emergency situation to your own pets and those in your care.

The course has been designed to give you basic life saving skills to initially respond to an illness or injury until you can get the pet safely to a veterinary surgery. It is ideal for pet owners but also suitable for pet professionals. The course primarily covers dogs but also covers cats, rabbits and other small animals.
​
During the course you will complete theory work and also some practical hands-on skills which will include the use of our resusi-dog Casper. You will be assessed throughout the course for understanding/participation; there is no 'test' at the end.
​
The primary purpose of this course is to;
  • Preserve Life
  • Promote recovery
  • Prevent worsening of injuries/conditions until you can seek veterinary support.
  • Minimise pain/suffering
  •  
The course covers;
  • Keeping you and your pet safe
  • Minor Injuries
  • Seizures
  • Drowning
  • How to control bleeding
  • Shock
  • Resuscitation
  • Heat Stroke
  • Choking
  • and much more
​The course fee includes;
  • a student manual
  • weekly refresher emails
  • CPD credits
  • tutor instruction
  • hands-on practical skill development and your certificate.
Upon successful completion, you will receive an OFQUAL certificate which is valid for 3 years.

​** As much as we love dogs, this course is for humans only, so please leave your 4-legged friends at home.

Do you have a group of staff, friends or colleagues? Why not look at hosting your own course at a convenient day/time for you?

I completed the Online First Aid Course with Potter Paws as I needed to update this for my dog walking and pet visiting business whilst in Covid lockdown. The course was very well presented and we received a certificate and first aid training booklet through the post. There was also the opportunity to practice some of the skills in person once Covid restrictions have been relaxed. Highly recommended for pet professionals and pet owners

I took part in the Canine Pet First Aid course in May which was run as a virtual course via Zoom. The course was very informative
