Canine & Pet First Aid

Would you know what to do in a pet emergency?

Get vital skills to confidently provide basic first aid to your pet in their time of need!

Whether you’re a pet parent or you work with animals, this is one course you can’t afford to miss.
You’ll learn essential life-saving skills to handle a pet’s injury or illness right until you can get them to a vet. By the end of the course, you’ll know how to:
1. Preserve life
2. Promote recovery
3. Prevent injuries and conditions from getting worse until you can seek vet support
4. Minimise pain and suffering

This course is the perfect blend of theory and hands-on training. You’ll work with our resusci-dog Casper to help you develop those all-important practical skills. Rather than a nerve-wracking final exam, we gauge how you’re doing throughout these interactive sessions to make sure you’re on
track.

Here’s what you’ll cover:

  • Keeping you and your pet safe
  • Tending to minor injuries
  • Handling seizures
  • Drowning rescue
  • How to control bleeding
  • Treating shock
  • Resuscitation
  • Dealing with heat stroke
  • Managing choking
  • …and much more!

Our all-inclusive programme equips you to tackle pet emergencies like a pro. You’ll get:

  • A comprehensive student manual recapping what you’ve learned.
  • Weekly refresher emails to keep those fresh new skills razor-sharp.
  • The opportunity to pick our expert tutors’ brains and engage in lively Q&A sessions

To top it all, at the end of the course you’ll receive CPD credits and an OFQUAL certificate that’s valid
for 3 years.

Our sessions are insightful, relaxed and fun. We love welcoming fresh faces and you’ll meet a fantastic bunch of fellow pet enthusiasts to share tales and tips with.

**Please leave your four-legged friend at home – as much as we love pets, this course is for humans only!**

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?

What a great course, I learned so much. Hope I never need to use the skills I was taught but great to know I might be able to help if there was a problem. Many thanks.

I completed my first aid training course in September, This course was included in my dog grooming course Iā€™m currently doing.
Potter Paws provided a face to face session at at the Salon.
Sam Potter who ran the course was brilliant, very informative, friendly and made everyone who was taking part get involved.
At the end of the course you complete a test and receive a nice certificate.
You can also purchase an animal first aid kit and student booklet which I thought was a nice touch šŸ‘šŸ¼
When I renew my certificate I will definitely be going back to Potter Paws.
Highly recommend

I completed the Online First Aid Course in April - Sam was incredibly thorough and informative, taking time to answer questions and go into more detail if needed. He was very friendly and professional, and made the whole session engaging while covering a wide range of topics. The demos and visual aids were really helpful and informative - I feel like a learned a lot in a relatively short space of time!

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
