Miami Pet First Aid and CPR Classes

Pet Tech Equipaws Pet Services

Sign Up for Pet First Aid and CPR Classes in Miami!

We all love our pets like family. Did you know that pets, just like your children, are at greater risk of injury or death from preventable accidents than any other reason? In fact, 70% of pets who are injured and die as a result of their injuries could have survived if they’d been given CPR or First Aid on site. That’s why Equipaws Pet Services is now offering Pet Tech’s pet first aid and care classes for pet owners in Miami:  the PetSaver™ and Pet First Aid & Care For Your Pets™.

 Taking the correct and proper actions can significantly increase the chances of survival and reduce the extent of injury to your pet before transporting them to your veterinarian. It’s worth it to be prepared for every emergency!

Pet Tech First Aid & Care for Your Pets™ 

The Pet Tech First Aid & Care for Your Pets™ program is a five hour course that covers a number of valuable first aid skills and information to keep your pets fit, healthy, and happy. The course will teach you life-saving skills, including:

  • canine and feline CPR
  • rescue breathing
  • choking management
  • snout-to-tail assessment for injury and wellness
  • lectures on insect, snake bite, shock, and heat management, and other preventive knowledge.
Additionally, the class includes the PetSaver™handbook, and upon successful completion each participant will receive a certificate.

Dog Adoption Event in Downtown Dadeland

dog friendly events Miami Downtown Dadeland

There are tons of fun, dog-friendly events throughout Miami in April, and we have our paws in lots of them! We’re happy that West Elm Dadeland approached us to put on a pet-friendly event at their Dadeland store on April 13, 2014. The Downtown Dadeland area is very pet-friendly; the condos allow cats and dogs, and the store encourages paw traffic. Add that all up and it equals the perfect spot for a dog-friendly mixer!

Together, we are putting on a Doggy Adoption Fair to find forever homes for a few lucky dogs from Friends Forever Rescue. So, whether you would like to adopt and rescue a dog, or bring you own furry friend along, join West Elm Dadeland for their very first Doggy Adoption Fair in their store:

Where: 8805 Dadeland Boulevard, Miami, FL 33156

When: April 13, 2014, 12-4 pm!

It will be the perfect place for those living in the South Miami, Pinecrest, and Falls area to meet local, pet-centric vendors to fulfill all your pets’ needs.
