Over the last two Sundays we have run our cat and dog first aid courses.

Each course started just after 9.30am and involved learning about how to save a cat or a dogs life and hints and tips on what to do.

On Sunday the 9th after the cat course theory GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne took the participants over to the new multi purpose animal welfare building for a look around and some hands on with Gucci a lovely grey cat.

Yesterday during the training 'Eric' one of the Slovakian puppies made an appearance as a model and for some hands on in finding a heart beat.

We have now set dates for next years training and would like to thank those that attended.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "The first aid courses we run help give knowledge and the confidence to help your pet if ever you find them or another pet in need."

"They aren't designed to make you a vet but certainly help with what to do in the case of an emergency whilst trying to get them to the experts."

"We have now set dates for 2016 and looking at other possible training courses we can run."

Nicky Bugden came yesterday to the dog first aid course said "Your talk today was very informative and interesting."  

"I certainly feel I have more knowledge to react to Charlie's needs, should he have an accident."  

"I also enjoyed seeing around the new facilities and learning more of what the GSPCA are involved in, many thanks."
