Ask Allie

O&H: Allie, we’ve been hearing about first aid classes for pets. Please tell us more!

Allie: Sure! Red Cross pet first aid classes, which last about four hours, are a combination of lecture, discussion, video presentation, and live demonstrations. They can be taught for dogs, cats, or both, and topics include actions to take in an emergency, such as CPR and controlling bleeding. The Red Cross first began offering pet first aid classes in 1997, and it recently revised the program to separate care for cats and dogs, which are different in some important respects. Another source for pet first aid classes is Pet Tech, which has 300 trained instructors in 30 states, Canada and Mexico. Started 13 years ago by Thom Somes, a former emergency medical technician and a human first aid instructor, Pet Tech offers first aid and CPR, dental care, and senior pet care classes. For more information you can visit Pet Tech’s website at www.pettech.net.

Testimonials
I am beholden to Mr. Hook and the entire staff who advised me during the difficult time following my sisters’ death. The firm was highly recommended and I understand why. Any bewilderment I felt going through the estate process was eased by the compassion and professionalism exercised by this law firm. I am eternally grateful.
