Who will teach you?

Learn from a senior emergency vet who deals with emergencies on a daily basis in the largest veterinary emergency hospital in WA, ably supported by a team of experienced nurses.

How is the workshop structured?

This workshop starts with learning the theory behind emergency pet first aid followed by hands-on training with live dogs in our specially equipped Skills Lab, a learning and teaching space set up for our 4th and 5th year vet students. This means you have access to special training tools such as Rufus, one of our teaching mannequins.

What you will learn

Our workshop participants get the most up-to-date knowledge in Pet First Aid because our clinicians are doing the research that advances veterinary medicine and are consummate teachers. They love teaching, that’s why they are at a university teaching hospital. Allow them to share their passion for best practice emergency pet first aid with you and walk away feeling confident in providing effective first aid to your pet in an emergency until you can get them to the hospital.
