April is Pet First Aid Awareness Month!

How would you help your dog if he became overheated on a hike, if you found a tick on your cat, if your pet got stung by a bee, or…bitten by a rattlesnake?! April is National Pet First-Aid Awareness Month, and there’s never been a better opportunity to learn than during the PFA (Pet First Aid) SUMMIT 2023!

Pet First Aid and CPR instructor Denise Fleck, The Pet Safety Crusader, has taught more than 31,000 people how to rescue Rover or help Fluffy feel better before veterinary care is available. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday this April, Denise will showcase one of the 100 Pet First Aid instructors she has trained. Log onto at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific to attend. Cost is free, but what you may learn is priceless!

During #PFASUMMIT2023, 12 topics will be discussed by instructors who teach The Pet Safety Crusader’s veterinary-approved program across the U.S. and in Canada:

  • Mon 4/3 What is Pet First Aid & Why Should You Know It?

  • Wed 4/5 Training for Safety

  • Fri 4/7 Raw Food Basics

  • Mon 4/10 Tales of a Pet Sitter

  • Wed 4/12 String in Your Pet? Get to the Vet!

  • Fri 4/14 Special Considerations for Working Dogs

  • Mon 4/17 Tips & Tricks For Giving Your Pet Meds

  • Wed 4/19 H2O & The Pet Bowl it Goes In

  • Fri 4/21 Cancer Awareness

  • Mon 4/24 Is Your Dog an Introvert or an Extrovert?

  • Wed 4/26 IVDD: A True Neurologic Emergency

  • Fri 4/28 Your Pet’s Health & Safety Team

I'm excited to announce that Doggy's Big Day will soon be able to offer in-person pet first aid and CPR classes to our clients and the community! I (Linda) am getting certified through Denise's Instructor Training program to become a certified instructor. My goal is to empower pet parents and professionals with the skills I am acquiring through an intensive 10-week training with The Pet Safety Crusader. Stay tuned for more information on upcoming classes!

Pet First-Aid is NOT a replacement for veterinary care but by reacting quickly and confidently when injury occurs, you CAN make a difference in the life of an animal!
