Canine First Aid Level 2 (VTQ)
Loved pets deserve excellent care and that includes giving them first aid learned on the Canine First Aid Level 2 (VTQ) course if necessary.
When people think of first aid, they often do not think about their pets. Pets have accidents the same as humans and knowing what to do should the worst happen is a simple thing to learn with basic training. Canine first aid is not aimed to replace veterinary care but it will help you to recognise an emergency, calm your pet and reduce the risks of delayed treatment.
This is the basic course to cover the first aid for your pets that covers all the topics mentioned in the Course Contents.
Please scroll down for a full list of the course contents.
This course is ideal for pet owners or pet professionals. It covers the main first aid subjects for Dogs and Cats but this information is also suitable for most other animals. Understanding basic first aid for your pet will give you the skills to assist them and prevent them from getting worse before professional help is given by your vet.
This qualification is a Level 2 Qualification and is also available with an Endorsed Certificate from TQUK, for an extra charge if required.
