Chartiers Custom Pet Cremation sponsored a four hour pet first aid certification class at the Bridgeville Public Library on Saturday October 22, taught by Karen Sable of Pet Emergency Training, LLC.
Although there is usually a charge for attending the classes, Deb sponsors these sessions free of charge in an attempt to offer families the skills that they may need to save the life of their dear pet.
“It is difficult when we lose a pet who has lived a full and long life, but it is practically impossible to say goodbye when the pet is only a few years old. The grief is palpable in these situations, with families saying they had such plans for the life cut drastically short.”
And not just considering household emergencies, but with the number of weather related problems during the past several years (floods, tornadoes and large snowfalls with power outages), the western Pennsylvania area has not been spared the impact these conditions can have on our beloved pets.
The four hour class covered injury assessment, rescue breathing, canine and feline CPR, bleeding protocols, choking management, heat and cold injuries, bites and stings, seizures, poisoning, fractures and limb injuries, and the creation of a home pet first aid kit. Participants received lecture presentations as well as extensive demonstration on stuffed animals and hands on skills practice as well as training materials, a first aid handbook, Certificate of Completion and wallet card.
