Yesterday the GSPCA held the first Dog First Aid Course at the Shelter.
11 dog lovers turned up on a very sunny Sunday to take part and all enjoyed a 2 hour session learning about first aid for dogs and what to do in the case of an emergency.
The group learnt about CPR for dogs to what to do if their dog gets cut or electrocuted.
Donna Rostron who has adopted a dog from the Shelter called Coby said ‘Thank you Steve Byrne for a great first aid course for dogs today learnt some useful tips at the GSPCA’
Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said ‘It was a great morning yesterday sharing knowledge that could help save a dogs life.’
‘Working in animal care we often take for granted the knowledge we learn that could save an animals life and it was great to share that with a very keen group that seemed to really enjoy the experience.’
‘Inca the husky who’s looking for a home came in as a model and she really was a star letting the group find a dogs heart beat and have a bandage attached to her head.’
‘We are looking to hold a cat first aid course on the 2nd of March and another dog course on the 23rd both starting at 9.30am.’
