If you were in an emergency with your pet would you know how to help them? Knowing pet first aid is so important if you are a pet parent.

We often take our pets with us on journeys. They can run into the same situations we do and the question is if your pet was in need of first aid or even CPR would you know what to do?? If you answered no or I am not sure you should consider taking the pet first aid training being offered by the Medical Reserves Corps.
