PetSaver / Pet First Aid & CPR - June, 2016
Description: All our Pet First Aid and CPR classes are approved for CEU's by many organizations including: Massachusetts Certified Veterinarian Technicians CCPDT PSI NAPPS North Carolina Veterinary Board Others We can also apply for others if you are required CEU's with in your orginization. Do not let this scare you off. All pet owners will greatly benefit from this class. This just shows the level of the class for our students.   The Pet Saver / First Aid and CPR program is aproximately 8 hours in length and is the recommended course of instruction and includes all three classes.   PetSaver (Approximately 8 hours)(8am - 5pm) The PetSaver class includes three seperate programs combined into a one day class. They are: 1. Pet First Aid & CPR (Approximately 5-6 hours)(8am - 2pm) One of the most important and vital items you will learn in this class is the Snout -To-Tail assessment. This skill alone is worth the price of admission Restraining and Muzzling Primary Assessment Rescue Breathing Canine and Feline CPR Choking Management Snout-To-Tail Assessment Assessing the Pet's Vitals Handbook Insect Bites & Stings and snake bites Heat & Cold Injuries Seizure 2. Caring For Your Senior Pet-izen  Part of being a caring, conscientious, and responsible and loving pet owner includes helping the pet into its “golden years.” Medically speaking, “old age” for pets is considered a condition and not an illness or disease.  There are many preventative measures that you can do now to increase the quality and quantity of your pet’s life as they become “senior pet-izens.”  This course will teach you to create a lifestyle for your pet that minimizes the risk of illness, injury and disease and, at the same time, maximizes the quality of their life and your relationship with them. 3. Dental Care For Your Pets  Your pet not having their teeth brushed for the first 3 years of their life is equivalent to you not seeing a dentist until you were about 20 years old.  Imagine what your mouth would look like, what it would smell like if you didn’t have any dental care for the first 20 years of your life!  This course will teach you how to properly brush your pets' teeth, how to recognize the signs of periodontal disease, the four stages of periodontal disease, and what you should do if you suspect your pet has periodontal disease.  You can read more about this program and others at: www.jimhelemsdogpals.com You can see all out Pet First Aid products on our shop: www.dogpalsshop.com   About your instructor.   Jim Helems currently owns Jim Helems' Dog Pals.
