Pet First Aid Instructor Development Workshop Offered at the 2014 Southwest Veterinary Symposium

Interested in becoming a Pet First Aid Instructor? Pets America is excited to once again offer a full certification course at the Southwest Veternarian Symposium in Fort Worth, Texas, September 27, 2014. Register today - space is limited! 

Pet's America's mission is to save the lives of pets and the people who love them! Advance preparation is the key to raising the bar on pet care and ensuring the safety and survival of people and their pets in any emergency, yet few educational opportunities exist to help pet owners learn valuable pet first aid skills or create a personal disaster plan. In filling this important niche, Pets America has surveyed more than 400 veternarians from the International Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society and the TX Veterinary Medical Association to create a comprehensive pet first aid curriculum and guide.

Pets America partners with the Emergency Care and Safety Institue to deliver workshops nationwide. The demand for pet first aid and disaster preparedness classes is growing at an exponential rate. As a result, enthusiastic, experienced instructors are needed to teach classes to pet owners and their communities at large. Earn extra income while teaching the latest standards, skills and procedures veterinarians and disaster preparedness professionals recommend!
