According to the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), 1-out-of-4 injured pets would survive, if just one pet first aid technique was applied, prior to getting emergency veterinary care.

Taught by a certified Pet Tech Instructor, Our Pet Tech PetSaver™ and First Aid & CPR classes will provide you with the skills to help you give your pet a better chance of survival, should an emergency occur.

Do you know what to do if your dog chokes and loses consciousness?  What to do if your pet has a cut that will NOT stop bleeding and he is about to lose consciousness?  What if your pet's heart stops?  Yes, it can happen!  

FAQS: 

How are Pet Tech classes different than on-line classes or videos?  ALL of our training is done in person, in a classroom setting.  There are MANY benefits to this, including the ability to PRACTICE your skills (CPR, rescue breathing, bandaging, etc) with your instructor right there to guide you.  DOING the skill helps you learn and retain what you have learned.  Participants usually comment that they had no idea how difficult it was to actually perform CPR and they are glad they had the opportunity to practice!  You will also learn the information and skills by using many teaching methods, all of which are designed to help you retain knowledge - lecture, visual cues, written learning, demonstration and hands-on skill practice.

Who should take a PetSaver™ Class?  The PetSaver™ class is perfect for anyone who spends time around dogs or cats - pet parents, groomers, shelter employees, rescue organizations, fosters, animal control officers, dog trainers, pet sitters, volunteers, boarding and daycare facility employees and more! 

Where are classes held?  Classes are held at various locations along the Wasatch front and Wasatch back.  If you don't see a location listed close to you, contact us!  With a minimum enrollment, we can also hold private classes for your staff, friends and family at your location!   

Can I buy a class as gift for someone else?  Absolutely!  A gift certificate for a PetSaver™ class is the PERFECT gift for anyone that loves animals, whether they are a new pet owner or they have been around pets forever!   They also make the PERFECT gift for your dog groomer or pet sitter!  Contact us to receive a paper gift certificate you can gift wrap!  

Can I get a discount?  We offer discounts for current Critter Buddies clients, rescue organizations and shelter employees.  Contact us today for more details!  

Fundraising?  Really?  Yes!  Did you know that you can host a class to raise money for your local shelter or pet rescue?  Contact us today to learn more!
