Red Cross Dog First Aid Certified
I completed a course for Dog First Aid thru the Red Cross of America. This covered how to keep a dog stable until emergency aid can be obtained. I also received pet first aid thru my certification and I have in my possession a pet Dr. bag that includes any supplies and first aid books that I would need in case an emergency arises.
