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.
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.
