Our Paw-some New Pet First Aid Course

Dog with St John Pet First Aid Kit

At St John Ambulance Tasmania, we're thrilled to unleash our latest addition to the pack: the Pet First Aid Course! As the experts in first aid, we're no strangers to saving lives, and now we're extending our expertise from two-legged to four-legged (and sometimes feathered or floppy-eared) friends. This course is purr-fect for pet owners, pet care professionals, and anyone with a heart for animal welfare. Our furry, scaly, and feathered companions aren't just pets; they're part of the family, and it's our duty to ensure they're safe, sound, and wagging. Join us as we embark on this tail-wagging adventure to keep our pets healthy and happy.

Why Pet First Aid? 
Just like us humans, our pets can get into a bit of a pickle – whether they're chasing their own tails into trouble or finding mysterious "snacks" that they shouldn't. Knowing how to react when your fur baby gives you a fright with a sudden illness or injury is crucial. Our course isn't just about dealing with emergencies; it's about preventing them too. With topics including CPR for pets (yes, it's a thing!), what to do if your doggo or kitty is choking, and how to deal with bites, stings, or the dreaded chocolate ingestion, you'll be the coolest cat in pet care.

Be Prepared to Paw-tect
Many pet emergencies happen at home or during times when immediate veterinary care may not be accessible. In these moments, your knowledge of pet first aid can be life-saving. Being prepared means you can provide comfort and care to your pet, minimizing their pain and distress, and potentially improving their chances of recovery before professional help is available.

Tailored Training for All Types of Tails
Whether you're a dog person, a cat person, or an "all creatures great and small" person, we've got you covered. Our training is as diverse as the animal kingdom, designed to cater to the specific needs of different pets. From whiskers to feathers, you'll learn how to handle emergencies with confidence, ensuring peace of mind for both you and your furry, scaly, or feathery friend.

Empawering Pet Owners
Armed with knowledge from our course, you'll be the alpha of pet health and safety. It's not just about responding to emergencies; it's about preventing them, understanding your pet's health, and ensuring they lead a happy and healthy life. Plus, it's a great way to show your pet how much you love them – in addition to belly rubs and treats, of course!
