Pet First Aid Event returns 11th Oct

It’s been ‘a minute’ since Clent Hills Vets held a physical Pet First Aid Event, which is why we are so excited to share that this hugely popular event is back next month!

We will be running our Pet First Aid Event again on October 11th for local pet owners and carers. The event, which is about cats and dogs, will take place at Bromsgrove School and starts promptly at 7pm (registration will open at 6:45pm).

In many pet health emergencies, it can be vital to get your pet to a veterinary clinic as quickly as possible for treatment, however, how do you spot the symptoms of potential emergencies and what can you do in the first instance to help your pet?

At our upcoming event, Emily Ashdown, RVN (Registered Veterinary Nurse), Pet Physiotherapist and first aid trainer, will take you through a number of common pet health emergency situations and teach you about the symptoms to look out for and how to administer basic first aid.

Emily will cover cuts, choking, poisons, seizures, stings, road traffic accidents and much, much more. She will also show you how to respond to an emergency situation with your safety in mind. When animals are hurt they can be unpredictable, so it’s important to make sure you don’t get injured whilst trying to help your pet.

We will be selling pet first aid kits on the night for £10, or you can order one for £15 from our Bromsgrove vet practice after the event.

Whether you’re a dog or cat owner yourself, or you look after other people’s pets, it’s important to know what to do in an emergency situation. Acting fast could indeed save a pet’s life.
