Cat First Aid & CPCR (yes, there's a second C)
Cats are NOT small dogs! The fabulous feline is a uniquely different species, and although many first aid techniques are similar to ones used on canine friends, this webinar addresses cats specifically. Denise Fleck (The Pet Safety Crusader) will take you on a 3-1/2 to 4-hour self-guided journey into CAT FIRST-AID & CPCR. She will share with you what signs accompany various illness and injury, and the basic steps you need to take at the time of crisis to minimize complications and pain until you can reach veterinary care.
Topics covered include:
Muzzling, Safe Approach & Transporting Cats
How to Find Your Cat’s Pulse, Respiration, Capillary Refill
