Can you help your dog... if she choked on a toy? If she was hit by a car? If he ate chocolate? If he cut his paw? If he was hurt in any way?

What you do between when an injury happens and when veterinary care is available will greatly affect a dog's chances of a full recovery. Register for Dogsafe® Canine First Aid courses and workshops and learn how to help dogs in emergencies.This course includes a 118-page Dogsafe® student manual and a valid three-year certificate with rights to use the Dogsafe® logo for marketing purposes. CPR/AR (artificial respiration) is trained hands-on with canine manikins and stuffed animals.
