Help save a dogs life

Our Pet First Aid Course will give you the skills to deal with a variety of minor problems.

This approved course is delivered from a purpose-built facility at VIPPIES HQ.

Jade and Sheena are qualified pet and canine first aid instructors and will deliver this classroom-based course over 4 hours.

You will also learn how to take your pet’s pulse with Sheena’s willing helpers Max and Holly.


What you will learn

It will give you a basic understanding of problems that can benefit from first aid including:
  • heat stroke and hypothermia
  • dry drowning
  • poisoning and stings
  • broken bones and spinal injuries
  • cuts and blood loss
  • bumps and grazes
  • tick removal
  • bloat
  • shock

Learning CPR

It gives peace of mind should your pet need life-saving emergency resuscitation.

‘Recussi-Fido’ puts in an appearance so you can learn how to carry out CPR – you will need previous basic knowledge of ‘Nellie the Elephant’ for this part. There are also opportunities to practice bandaging and some fun quizzes.

Ahead of the course, you will receive a student manual so you know what to expect.

There is a short end of course test which, on successful completion, will earn you a certificate.
