Editor's Viewpoint: Ideal ‘treat’ for a pet... first aid classes for dog owners

Editor's Viewpoint ·

Aoife and Emma with Bert

Sometimes the best ideas are glaringly obvious - when someone else thinks of them. Vet Aoife Morrow's first aid classes for owners to treat their pets in an emergency is one example. How many owners would know what to do if their dog had a serious injury or had difficulty breathing.

The basic skills taught by Aoife could make the all difference and allow owners to stabilise their pets until professional help is obtained. Non-pet owners might argue that it would be more important for people to take first aid classes to help other humans, but owners also have great devotion to their pets and will do anything to stop them having a dog's life.
