Once again the GSPCA held a Cat First Aid Course to help feline owners in Guernsey.

With 300 cats killed on the roads and the Animal Shelter helping over a 1000 cats a year at the GSPCA we are always striving to help pet owners.

Yesterday was the last cat first aid course of 2014 but there is a dog first aid course this Sunday and dates set for further courses next year.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "Each of the training sessions for both cat and first aid have been really enjoyable and those attending leave with a sense of understanding which could really help their pets if ever they find them sick or injured."

"The training session starts at 930am and lasts around 2 hours and isn't about learning how to be a vet, but to know what you can do to help save your cats life."

"As well as the first aid course we are holding a Pet Bereavement Course for Professionals and Volunteers, although anyone is welcome."

"You can see all of our courses on our training page."

The dates for the first aid courses are:

Dog First Aid 9.30am - 11.45am Sunday 9th November 2014 - Ref - Dog 9/11

Cat First Aid 9.30am - 11.45am Sunday 8th March 2015 - Ref - Cat 8/03

All courses are a minimum £15 donation and you must book your place by the Saturday before the training session.
