Real Life – Dog Hit-and-Run

by Keith -

Emily, a student who took her Pet First Aid Course with ProTrainings, used her quick thinking and the skills she’d acquired with us, to help a wounded Staffie who’d been hit by a car! Whilst travelling home from a grand Sunday lunch, Emily spotted a limping Staffordshire Bull Terrier.

Luckily, the owner had taken a ProTrainings ‘Pet First Aid’ course and sprung into action, turning the dog upside down and shaking him, before checking the inside of his mouth for the tablet. “Remembering the first aid talk Keith gave us 2 years ago, I checked his pulse regularly and kept an eye on his breathing rate. “I can definitely say that I would have panicked more, and would not have done the preliminary …
