Pet First Aid for Pet Professionals Level 3 (VTQ)

Pet first aid is the provision of initial care and medical assistance to injured or unwell pets. It involves recognising and responding to emergencies, performing basic medical procedures, and stabilizing pets until professional veterinary help can be obtained.


Pet first aid knowledge is valuable for pet owners to ensure the well-being and safety of their furry companions in times of medical emergencies.
