Pads and Paws Pet Services are really excited to be hosting another Doggy First Aid Course in partnership with Dog First Aid!

Every member of the Pads and Paws team has been first aid trained so that our clients can feel confident that we know what to do in the first few moments after an injury or accident. Following a super successful course in November and further enquiries; Pads and Paws Pet Services will continue to host Doggy First Aid courses led by a qualified and experienced veterinary surgeon. We really believe that this course is invaluable for those who work in the pet industry and dog owners alike.

Whilst the number one rule with any serious incident is to call or visit a qualified Vet, this course will provide you with the knowledge and confidence to treat minor injuries and administer what could be lifesaving treatment in those first few minutes before you get help from a qualified professional.

You will find an overview of the course content and other details below. If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to get in contact with one of the Pads and Paws Pet Services team.

We are also offering doggy daycare during the course at a discounted price of £20 - just book this as an add-on when registering for your place (pick-up and drop-up will not be included).
