Pet First Aid Course

Our qualified Veterinary Nurses run regular pet First Aid courses at our main surgery in Henley.

Would you know what to do: If your dog cut their pad and it was bleeding profusely? If they had collapsed and you were not sure about moving them? If they had run through some long grass and came out with a very sore eye?

These are just a few of the first aid cases that we see on a regular basis (cut pads being the most common) and, most of the time, they arrive at the surgery having received no immediate first aid.

To address this our qualified nurses have set up “first aid courses” where they will teach you how to cope in a variety of first aid situations. These courses are informal and practical based, we show you how to put the dressing on and then you have a go, so that if it happens in real life you will be able to act quickly.

You can ask as many questions as you like and we will cover a range of first aid scenarios with you. We will provide a co-operative patient for you to practice on.

Everyone who has attended a course so far has seemed very enthusiastic and the nursing staff are thoroughly enjoy them.

Cost is £28.50 including a doggy first aid kit.
