HVA Offers Pet CPR, First Aid Training

Did you know that man’s best friend and the rest of your beloved pets can benefit from their owner knowing Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation techniques?

Like their masters, pets are susceptible to medical emergencies, including cardiac arrest. But don’t think because you’re familiar with CPR techniques used on people, you’re ready to save Fido’s life should he stop breathing.

There are numerous variables to consider, such as at exactly what weight you hold your pet while performing CPR so you don’t seriously injure them versus using both hands to perform chest compressions while your pet lay side-down on the floor.

Questions like that will be answered for participants in this free HVA-provided training course, during which you will learn first-hand how to properly care for your pet in an emergency. Participants will receive a pet bandana after completing the program.

The Pet CPR and First Aid training will be held at the Huron Valley Ambulance Ann Arbor headquarters located at 1200 State Cir. in Ann Arbor from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, November 3rd.
