This course covers all the basics of first aid care for dogs and cats, from cuts and bee stings to convulsions, choking, and traumatic, life-threatening injuries. Steps to take in any given situation are taught one at a time, and a number of very helpful hands on practice make all of the information as direct and understandable as it can be. In cases of real emergency, knowing what not to do can be just as important as knowing what you should do.
