Course Summary:

This course has been designed to give owners the confidence and practical skillset necessary to cope with the everyday injuries a dog might experience, as well as with emergency situations, such as road accidents.

Students will establish an understanding of signs of good health, which they’ll learn to use as a point of reference when recognising any potential signs of discomfort.

This one-unit course covers a wide range of symptoms, enabling the owners to feel able to treat their own pets, and providing professionals such as veterinary receptionists with potentially vital first aid skills.

This Advanced Short Course is perfect for learners who want to delve deeper into this area, as well as those already working in the animal care sector looking to further their professional development.
