What should you do if your pup is having a seizure? Do you give your dog the Heimlich if it is choking on a chicken bone? If your cat got in to a fight how do you examine it to make sure it’s not seriously injured?
Come by the Brooklyn Lyceum, on Fourth Avenue at President Street, for the pet CPR/first aid class at the Brooklyn Mutt Show on March 24 and 25 to find out how to save your pet when it needs medical attention.
The certification course will be given by Brooklyn Bark Dog Walkers and Pet Sitters with BluePearl Veterinary Partners.
According to The American Animal Hospital Association, one in four pets’ lives could be saved if their owners administered a correct first aid technique.
You will learn how to recognize the signs of heat stroke, chocking, seizures and other emergencies and how to treat them by Dr. David Wohlstadter, an emergency care veterinarian and Brooklyn Bark’s “bark master” who is a licensed pet CPR instructor.
After the four-hour course you will be certified in pet CPR and emergency first aid.
