Canine First Aid Workshop

On the 22nd March 2014 Furrtography completed a practical Canine first aid and CPR workshop run by Canine First Aid Workshops - Rachel Bean.

Rachel is a qualified and RCVS registered Veterinary Nurse with 17 years experience.

The workshop consisted of lots of intense theory for the first half of the course, we learned about how to assess the injured patient, how to try and handle and restrain injured patients, we learned about haemorrhages, different types of wounds, Poisons, Hypothermia and Hyperthermia, Shock, Unconscious, collapsed patients, fractures and the list goes on...

The second half of the course we learned about CPR and how to administer this to a dog using Casper the Resuscitation Dog and also how to treat and bandage dog's paws and ears.

I have to say being a beloved dog owner and also working with dogs the course really opened my eyes to how vulnerable our dogs are both in the home and out on walks/location.

I would seriously recommend anyone that own's a dog or works with dog's that this course is a must and that the information that you learn within the course is vital if your dog ever becomes ill or injured.

I have to say a big thank you to Rachel Bean and the team at Academy4dogs for hosting this course, it was extremely informative, well delivered and well structured.

 Attached are a few candid pictures that I took on the day of the practical sessions using Casper the CPR dog and the real dogs that we practiced bandaging.

Many Thanks!
