FIRST-AID CLASSES FOR FOUR-LEGGED FRIENDS
If dogs and cats are a part of your family, then wouldn’t you want to ensure they live a good, long life? You can do your part by taking a PetSaver first-aid class. In these one-day seminars, held in partnership with the Brookhaven Parks and Recreation department, you’ll learn how to perform CPR and rescue breathing, along with other life-saving skills such as what to do if your pet is choking and how to treat bleeding and shock. Seconds count in an emergency medical situation, notes class instructor Nicole Essawy, and one out of five pets would survive if the owner knew these invaluable techniques. Attendees will also learn to do a complete snout-to-tail assessment that assists in detecting issues ahead of time. And, fun fact: You get to practice on stuffed animals. Classes are currently scheduled for July 16 and Aug. 21, with more to follow. Online registration is required. – JB
