It’s Pet First Aid Awareness Month!

Do your pet sitters know pet first aid?

April is Pet First Aid Awareness month, a very important way to promote education and training to become a caring, responsible pet parent and pet care professional!  We at Equipaws are proud to be trained in Pet Tech Pet CPR and First Aid’s thorough course and are committed to Pet Tech’s theme for this year: “Inform, Educate, Take Action, AND…Prevent 1 Million Pet ER Visits.”

We strongly believe in prevention; being a prepared pet parents means being proactive in your pet’s health. This includes feeding them the right foods, giving them regular dental and medical care, providing safe outlets for play and appropriate exercise routines, training, socializing, and being trained in pet CPR and first aid.
