Owens' Workforce and Community Services Offers a Pet First Aid Class, June 11

Will you know what to do when your pet Fido or Whiskers is in an emergency situation and needs immediate help? Learn how to protect your dogs, cats or other domestic pets from further harm, injury or suffering during emergencies as Owens Community College offers a new Pet First Aid class on Saturday, June 11.

The Pet First Aid course will occur from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at the College's Workforce and Community Services, located on Tracy Road in Northwood.

"Attendees will be taught the proper techniques of applying prompt, effective care to their pets in the event of a crisis situation," said Andrea Thompson, Owens Director of Continuing Education. "The goal is to show individuals the correct way to care for their pet until it can be taken to a veterinarian for medical care and attention."

Thompson added, "All pet owners and pet lovers are encouraged to take a pet first aid course. Pet emergencies can happen anywhere and individuals need to be prepared to handle unforeseen situations."

Course content will include material and instruction on how to approach a sick or injured animal, administering medications, performing CPR and first aid, recognizing an emergency, and what to store in a pet first aid kit. Participants are asked not to bring their pets to the class.

Owens' Workforce and Community Services is dedicated to providing customer- driven workforce development and job training. The learning-centered approach focuses on developing and enhancing professional skills to meet the needs of the community, customizing training in the areas of computer applications, allied health education, apprenticeship-related training and skilled trades.
