The Milwaukee Emergency Center For Animals
Announces CPR & First Aid Class For Pets
CPR & First Aid Training is Critical in Preventing Accidents and Death Among Pet Owners
Preventable accidents are the primary cause of death and disability for cats and dogs of pre-senior age. According to the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), if pet CPR and first aid techniques had been used before seeking emergency veterinary care, at least one out of four or 25 percent more pets would have survived.
Common pet accidents include being hit by a car, birthing difficulties, breaking bones, being bitten or attacked by other animals, eye emergencies and ingesting chemicals, rocks or other harmful objects. As responsible pet owners, it’s vital to be prepared in case of accidents or emergencies. The Milwaukee Emergency Center for Animals (MECA) is offering CPR and first aid training classes that will enable pet owners to become proactive in the prevention of accidents by providing them with the tools and skills necessary to become their pet’s first responder.
If you or someone you know owns a pet, please register or encourage them to attend MECAs CPR & First Aid course being held on Saturday, September 25th at 6:30 p.m. at the Milwaukee Emergency Center for Animals, located at 3670 South 108th Street, Greenfield, Wisconsin 53228. The class will be led by Dr. Marla Lichtenberger, DVM, DACVECC and owner of MECA and will include a discussion about recognizing emergency situations, as well as course topics, such as “What to Look for if You Think Your Pet May be in Shock” and “How to Perform CPR on Your Pet.”
Similar to humans, the majority of pet accidents occur in or around the home and CPR, as well as simple first aid procedures can be the difference between life and death for your pet. MECAs CPR & First Aid course is $60 per person and may be paid by cash, check or credit card no later than September 18th. If you’re interested in attending, please call to reserve your spot now since class size is limited and will fill up quickly. If you have any questions, please call 414-543-7387 (PETS) or visit http://www.erforanimals.com/ for more information.
The Milwaukee Emergency Center for Animals (MECA) is a specialized, “tertiary care hospital” for animals, which serves as a small animal critical care and emergency facility that operates 24 hours a day.
