Our Pet First Aid course is Internationally recognized and has since been taught by Instructors across North America for over a decade. In September 2007, Walks 'N' Wags took over the administration of this wonderful program and our goal is to continue to train quality Pet First Aid Instructors and provide such an important service to Pet Owners for many years to come.

Thank you Heather, and Walk’N’Wags Pet First Aid!” Bree Rockwell

"I found this course especially helpful for anticipating/preventing as well as dealing with emergencies." Sharon Blackwell, New Westminster, BC

"This was a very informative and fun course. I will be well prepared and know exactly what to do in case of emergency!" Chasey Lister

"Please tell the people "First Aid Fur Pets" that they already may have saved the life of my parent's cat only weeks after my course. I was able to intercede to encourage them to take her to the vet initially, (diagnosis - infection needing a long acting antibiotic) to show how to use a dropper to give water and how to feed (side of cheek). She refused to eat and drink, the vet gave tools to measure consumption so she got food and water. She is sleeping peacefully and now, eating and drinking on her own and did not die. We think she will live. Emma the cat and her grateful family thank you."
                                         Sheila Chapman
