Canine CPR & First Aid Training – May 6, 2023

Scott Goldstein will be presenting his new program with Baltimore County Fire and Medical Training in pet CPR and first aid. Scott has 39 years of experience as a first responder. He is the Captain of the Pikesville Volunteer Fire Co, as well as an EMT, and certified CPR instructor/instructor evaluator with Baltimore County Fire and Medical Training, 

This half-day course teaches first aid and CPR techniques using authentic canine CPR manikins, to address emergencies that can occur with small and large dogs as well as cats. The class will train you to notice abnormalities and detect early warning signs in pets. You will learn essential pre-vet care and life saving techniques for those times when immediate action can make all the difference. There will be a handout which emphasizes the major points with a section for note-taking. A standard Stop the Bleed certificate will be issued.

Registration opens for ODTC members on Thursday, March 2 at 8am. If space remains, non-members may register on Saturday, March 4 at 8am
