    DefaultPet First Aid/CPR

    Boy you never know when this will be important. I am in the process of organizing a class for myself, my assistant manager (who is a cert. EMT) and community members who want to be informed better on pet first aid.
    Most of what I know has been learned by reading and it has come in handy TWICE now.
    Last night I had to do the heimlich on Rhumba. This is the second time I have had to do this with her. But last night...was more scary.
    She and Lily have a tendancy to go down stairs with me when I do the laundry. I keep my dog food down there in storage containers that snap shut.
    Well that is not enough to stop them.
    They flipped the latch, helped themselves. Problem is the container is high, food is low and they have to choke themselves practically to get to the food.
    On top of that they try to eat as much as they can get as fast as they can.
    Roo choked. Got it stuck. I had to do try THREE times to lodge the food loose!

    So it seems perfect timing to get this organized....

    So I urge you to find a course if you can!! It can save your dog/cats life!

    Yep! I posted about this last week or so... I would love to do one. I have learned a ton while working in the vet clinics, but not so much of the emergency things that are very good to know

    I should mention that it is the Red Cross who is helping us put on the class.
    I found another orgainization that does it but the woman wants $59 per person!

    Do you know when you'd be organizing it? I'd be willing to make a trip up there for a day if I was able to go!

    Waiting for them to call back. Where are you located. I found several places in MI where they seem to do them often at Red Cross. Up here in the north though...we are behind the times LOL

    I'm near Lansing. I just did a search and they have some coming up in December! They have separate ones for cats and dogs, $35 each. I didn't know they did that! That's awesome!

    I saw that one in Lansing and figured if I cannot get this one going I was going to attend it.

    Let me know if you end up going! I know exactly where it is - I've driven by it a million times and walked around that area for hours looking for a lost dog
