RECEIVED FROM A WALKS 'N' WAGS CERTIFICATE HOLDER AT WALKS 'N' WAGS HEAD OFFICE
"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

(Thank you very much for sharing this with us, Sheila!)
