Knowing pet first aid CAN save lives. Here are testimonials from two of our students:
Mary Costantino writes: “I took your pet first aid class and I wanted to tell you that I used what I learned today to save a dog’s life. I work for Greywood Kennels in Lakeside, CA and one of the dogs had a problem and stopped breathing. I did CPR and she came back. It was a wonderful feeling. I just wanted to thank you and tell you how wonderful you are.”
Ivory Rose, a pet daycare and boarding staffer, writes: “The puppy was unresponsive and limp. His tongue and gums were blue. The vessels in his eyes were popping. I did what you taught me. I took a deep breath, calmed down and got to work. I started CPR for what felt like an eternity. Finally, the puppy was responsive. He coughed up pieces of kibble. I started the Heimlich maneuver as I could see he was suffocating again. I was getting a few pieces of kibble out every couple of minutes. Finally, his gums and tongue were pink again and he started to bite down on my fingers. I rushed him to the vet. He got a clean bill of health. It is so important for any pet parent to know CPR and pet first aid. The feeling of holding a lifeless puppy was the most horrific experience of my life. I am grateful he is okay. Something as simple as food — eating breakfast — and this happened. I could not be more thankful for everything I have learned from you, Arden, You are the reason this puppy named Harper is alive.”
