How We Can Help You
We offer hands-on Pet CPR & First Aid classes, for both dogs & cats. We provide services to the Greater St. Louis area.
The PetTech ® courses were created specifically to educate pet parents and professionals and fill the gap between home care maintenance and emergency care in the field, prior to veterinary care, when necessary. We teach people what they can do in the event of a medical emergency. The programs are designed to complement veterinary care and save precious time when seconds count.
