About Pet First Aid Team

Our Mission

Pet First Aid is a course created by animal lovers to teach people how to care for their pets. Having your pet get sick or injured is a difficult thing to see. This course was devised by the ProTrainings team to help people know what to do in these situations.

The Pet First Aid website launched in April 2011 across the United Kingdom and has been attracting media attention even before its debut. Lead instructor Keith Sleightholm has appeared on ITV's "This Morning" program to explain the importance of pet first aid to viewers across the country. The program has also been featured in national newspapers.
