Make the New Year Safer For Your Pets

 

We recognize the importance of having First Aid knowledge for human medical emergencies, but how about for our feline and canine family members?

Many of us forget that in spite of their excellent natural instincts, cats and dogs can get into accidents, ingest poisons, step on sharp objects, and experience other harmful mishaps. Will you know what to do if your cat suddenly is injured or acutely ill and you cannot immediately get professional veterinary help?

Fortunately, certified pet first aid instruction is available locally. VOKRA is proud to be a supporter of Walks 'N' Wags Certified Pet First Aid, located right here in Vancouver.

Several of VOKRA's volunteers have taken the Walks 'N' Wags' classroom training and found it very informative and beneficial. And if a Pet First Aid course isn't available in your area, or you cannot attend classes for another reason, they have a distance learning option.

So, although I'm not a big fan of New Years Resolutions, this is one I can get behind 100%. You can register individually, or if you're interested in getting together with like-minded cat folks to have a private group session, send me (Dania) an email: danias@vokra.ca.
