When people think of first aid, they often do not think about their pets. Pets have accidents the same as humans and knowing what to do should the worst happen is a simple thing to learn with basic training. Pet first aid is not aimed to replace veterinary care but it will help you to recognise an emergency, calm your pet and reduce the risks of delayed treatment.
Learning pet first aid is fun and informative and will give you the skills to deal with a pet emergency should it arise. This course can be taken as a classroom course nationally with an approved and monitored ProTrainings instructor or it can be taken online using video-based learning.
This course is ideal for pet owners or pet professionals. It covers the main first aid subjects for Dogs and Cats but this information is also suitable for most other animals. Understanding basic first aid for your pet will give you the skills to assist them and prevent them from getting worse before professional help is given by your vet.
This qualification is also available with an Endorsed Certificate from TQUK, for an extra charge if required. Sample certificate below.

“A very well put together and pitched e-learning experience, covering a broad range of pet first aid subjects and enabling me to undertake this with super quick course access and well structured bite sized learning elements. Good and immediate return to point reached previously, to fit in with my availability. I also liked the questions along the training routeway, to check and confirm knowledge retention and understanding. The Course Manual has some helpful information and supports the e-learning elements making this more of a blended learning solution.”
“Good introduction to pet first aid, videos informative with supportive text. Great to be able to leave training at any time and then resume exactly where you had left off. Regular video updates emailed as well.”
