Tri State Pet First Aid, because your pets’ survival could be up to you!

Cincinnati cat first aid, dog first aid, and pet cpr classes

Tri State Pet First Aid teaches you the skills necessary to provide emergency care to your pets should the need arise.

According to the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), one out of four more pets would survive if just one pet first aid technique was applied prior to getting emergency veterinary care.

Why should you take a pet first aid class?

There are more than 77.5 million dogs and 93.6 million cats owned in the United States. Many of these pets are considered part of the family sometimes even being referred to as “fur kids”.  Just one trip to the pet store will make you realize just how much pet owners care for their pets. Carts filled with toys, treats, apparel and quality food are in abundance. Why then wouldn’t a pet owner take a pet first aid class to learn the skills that could save their pet’s life?

Do you know what to do if your pet were to have a seizure, choke on a piece of rawhide, sustain a cut, stop breathing or worse, had their heart stop beating?
