New York: Learn How to Save Your Pet’s Life

October 5, 2012 by Tails Magazine in Home, News with 0 Comments

Do you know what to do if your dog has a seizure?  If your cat is choking?  Do you know how to recognize and treat heat overexposure?  What to check for after a dog fight, even if everyone looks OK?

Do you know how to approach an animal in an emergency without becoming collateral damage yourself?

The American Animal Hospital Association estimates that 1 in 4 more pet’s lives could be saved if their owners applied just one pet first aid technique.

The time to learn pet first aid is not on the way to the emergency veterinarian.

You can learn and be certified in pet CPR/first aid in a course given by Brooklyn Bark Dog Walkers and Pet Sitters at BluePearl Veterinary Partners, 
32 4th Avenue  Brooklyn, NY 11217 on Thursday, October 11th starting at 6:30 pm.

This course is sponsored by a partnership between FIDO, NYC’s largest dog owner advocacy group and Brooklyn Bark and part of their monthly seminar series ”Your Dog is Smart; Now it’s Your Turn”.  It will be taught by Helen Bowers, Brooklyn Bark’s Bark Master, a licensed pet CPR instructor and Dr. David Wohlstadter, a BluePearl emergency care veterinarian.  The 4-hour class will cover these and other emergencies that pet owners in New York City encounter.  The goal of the class is to enable pet owners to present their distressed pet to the emergency veterinarian in the best possible shape, giving the vet a better chance to save the pet’s life as well as reduce the pet’s ultimate bill.

In order to get this information out to as many pet owners as possible, the class is highly subsidized but carries a fee of $50 to cover costs.  As spaces are limited, preregistration is mandatory.

Information and registration form may be found athttp://www.brooklynbark.com/Pet-CPR/
