There is no 911 for your dog or cat. What would you do if your pet was injured and medical care was not readily available?
The recent wildfires are a good reminder that your family disaster preparedness efforts need to include your pets. Berkeley Humane will be hosting a Pet First Aid and CPR class on Saturday, October 13, 2019.
“We are teaching this class in recognition of the 29th Anniversary of the Loma Prieta Earthquake,” said Jeffrey Zerwekh, Executive Director of Berkeley Humane. “After a major emergency help may not be available right away, if your pet is injured, we want you to be equipped to care for them, potentially even save their life.”
The participants will learn the prior planning and preparation necessary to respond effectively to an animal medical emergency. It will be taught through lecture, discussion and hands on activities. Pet First Aid and CPR is the immediate and temporary care given to an injured or ill dog or cat to sustain life and to minimize further harm and suffering until the animal reaches medical care in the form of an emergency clinic or veterinarian.
Students will receive a Pet first Aid handout and a Certificate of Completion. Participants must be at least 12 years of age and able to undertake moderate physical activity. The class is for people only. No pets allowed.
