- become certified in Pet First Aid while supporting a great cause!

This 10-hour hands-on certificate course offered through Oakland Educational Services is designed to give pet lovers the information and skill required to stabilize an injured animal until qualified veterinary care can be accessed. We emphasize preventing illness and injury, the importance of early veterinary care and the appropriate restraining of an injured animal. We help you develop an emergency action plan which can be used for any emergency. All skills are practised on live animals, and students are encouraged to bring their pets to the course as long as they are healthy, up to date on vaccinations, and get on well with people and other animals! The course is usually held on a Saturday, in the downtown Toronto core.
