Help! My dog is... choking?

If Snuffy the puppy were choking or stopped breathing, would you know how to save her? Well, if not, you’re in luck, because we can now help you answer “yes!” 

The American Red Cross is known for providing lifesaving training that helps families stay safe and healthy, and since pets are part of the family, we offer training that will keep them safe and healthy as well! Our three-hour Pet First Aid course provides hand-on training in emergency care procedures for cats and dogs.   This session will teach you step-by-step so that you can learn how to:
·         Identify a normal heart rate
·         Safely approach an ill or injured animal
·         Safely restrain a cat
·         Properly muzzle a dog
·         Administer CPR and much more!

To learn more about our Pet First Aid program, view our flyer, or register for this $25.00 course, please visit the Chapter online or call us at 716.878.2377. 
A portion of the course fee goes towards the Pet Emergency Fund.
