Several months ago the Lady I rescued experienced a scary pet first aid emergency with Taffy, which she posted about in Drama and Dog Emergencies: What would you do? Worried that Taffy was in shock, the Lady searched Google for symptoms to see if she needed to rush Taffy to the vet or could help her at home. But there were two important symptoms that she didn’t know how to do, find her pulse and breathing rates. Because of that she ended up taking Taffy to the vet where she received the proper medical care for her bite wounds. But, the Lady felt if she would have known what to do she could avoid a vet visit next time, as her wounds were not that serious.
When contacted by ProTrainings.com to take their new on-line pet first aid and CPR course ProPetHero, the Lady I rescued jumped at the opportunity. After looking into other pet first aid courses she found them too costly, time consuming and inconvenient.
Unfortunately, it shouldn’t take an at-home emergency with your pets to realize you don’t know what to do.
Who Should Learn Pet First Aid and CPR
It’s not only important for pet owners to know what to do in case of an emergency with their pets, but anyone who works with pets in a professional capacity including:
- Pet Owners
- Dog Walkers
- Pet Sitters
- Pet Trainers
- Anyone who works with cats or dogs
Pet First Aid Topics Covered in ProPetHero Training
ProPetHero pet first aid and CPR training is a comprehensive course that covers all areas of first aid and what to do in case of an emergency with your pet. Most importantly, to the Lady I rescued, it starts out by helping you get organized so that you’re prepared just in case with what you’ll need, using a pet first aid kit and disaster preparedness kit checklist.
Once you’ve got your supplies organized in one safe place you won’t find yourself running around in a panic looking for a towel or muzzle for you to help your pet.
From there the course teaches you how to understand and measure vital signs. This is the area where the Lady needed the most help with Taffy’s emergency. To determine if Taffy was going into shock she needed to check her breathing and heart rates but had no idea how to do it. If her vitals would have been normal a vet trip might not have been necessary.
Taught conveniently on your own time in less than two hours (1:39), all areas of pet first aid and CPR are covered. The Lady found the short videos easy to watch and follow along, with a quick quiz on the topic following each video. Each topic is easily navigated from one topic to the next. You can stop at any time and easily start right back where you left off.
Other subjects in the course include Pet Poisonings, Lethargy, Vomiting and Diarrhea, Itching and Scratching, and dozens of others. The course trains viewers to notice abnormalities and to detect early health warning signs in large and small dogs and cats. Viewers will learn the proper steps to take and be shown essential preventative care and potential lifesaving techniques that are so important when immediate action is necessary.
At the end of the course you receive a nationally recognized certificate which is good for two years. During that time you also have access to all of the training materials and documents.
