You will put your customers at mind at ease because the class is focus on all types of emergency, not just first aid and cpr.

“Great course, each topic was explained clearly, concisely, with clear demonstrations. I will use this for review. Got some great ideas to telling potential dog parents what I do when first working with a pet and great for list of what to information to get from pet parents and what information and resources I need to have with me. Being informed and educated regarding emergencies will certainly increase my business and show how much I care for their animals. And it's the most economical course that I found for pet first aid certification! Jane K.”
