“Improving the Quality of Pets’ Lives, One Pet Parent at a Time”TM

Are you confident you would be able to act quickly in the event of a medical emergency with your furry friend?

Do you have the knowledge AND skills necessary to ensure the best possible outcome should your pet become ill or injured?

According to the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA),
1 out of 4 more pets would survive if just one pet first aid technique was applied prior to getting emergency veterinary care.

Our essential 5 hour Pet CPR & First Aid course and comprehensive 8 hour PetSaverTM Program are both designed for pet parents and pet care professionals. Groomers, dog walkers, pet sitters, rescue organizations, doggie daycares, trainers, kennel operators/staff  and loving pet owners can all benefit from the knowledge and practical skills gained through these courses.

Topics for both courses include:

  • Restraining & Muzzling
  • Primary Assessment
  • Rescue Breathing
  • Canine & Feline CPR
  • Choking Management
  • Bleeding & Shock Management
  • Fractures & Limb Injuries
  • Snout-to-TailTM Assessment for Injury & Wellness
  • Assessing the Pet’s vivals
  • Pet First Aid Kit Contents
  • Insect Bites & Stings and Snakebite
  • Heat & Cold Injuries
  • Seizure
  • Poisoning

    8 hour PetSaverTM Program also includes:
  • Caring For your Senior Pet-izenTM
  • Dental Care For Your Pets
  • Top 10 Situations Requiring Immediate Veterinary Care
  • Administering Medications
  • These are interactive courses taught by Golden Opportunity Assistance Dogs’ founder, Donna Frezell, where participants will learn through lecture, demonstration and lots of hands-on skill practice.  You will hone your skills on various canine and feline manikins including those with working lungs and femoral pulse for realistic CPR practice. As an added benefit, Golden Opportunity Assistance Dogs’ own service dogs will attend each class allowing participants to practice some of their skills on real live cuddly golden retrievers.
