Pet First Aid Can Be A Life-saver

Arden Moore founder of Pet First Aid 4U is America’s leading pet first aid instructor.

Arden and her dog Chipper and cat Casey are the only cat-dog pet first aid teaching team in the country and now also have a ‘resuscitation’ demo dog named Domino that gives students the chance to practice giving breaths of life.

The team are currently touring the country giving hands-on life-saving classes. The one-day course includes a detailed course book and two-year certificate.

“Knowing what to do – and what NOT to do – in a pet emergency is critical,” says Moore. “That is why I started Pet First Aid 4 U, because I wanted to teach students what to do in a real-life emergency, when it is unlikely that you have a pet first aid kit handy. I also developed my own curriculum because I wanted it to be customizable for specific pet professionals. My company does a lot of in-service training for pet sitting companies, dog daycares and grooming facilities. All of these businesses have slightly different needs, and customizing pet first aid training to their work situations just makes sense.”

In classes taught throughout the country, Moore teaches the most current pet first aid techniques. Her classes are unique in that they typically feature her very own animals—her Pet Safety Dog, Chipper, and Pet Safety Cat, Casey. Her four-legged assistants give students the chance to hone skills on a real dog and cat.

Already a best-selling author of more than two dozen dog and cat books, Arden Moore is on a mission to bring pet first aid techniques to the masses. “In our classes, we replace the panic pet parents feel with a can-do confidence, so pet parents can truly be their pet’s best health ally when minutes count,” says Moore. “We teach students to be ‘pet detectives.’ They learn to look for clues and then act quickly to stabilize, immobilize and transport their pets safely to the nearest veterinary clinic.”

After Moore wrote the training curriculum for Pet First Aid 4 U, she had it reviewed by leading veterinarians across the country to make sure it was accurate and as up-to-date as possible. She was humbled by the fact that after reviewing her class curriculum, these same experts also wanted to endorse her pet first aid training classes including “America’s Veterinarian” Dr. Marty Becker.

Moore and  Rob Nager a veteran pet first aid/CPR instructor and founder of Decadent Dog, a full service pet care company are available to conduct classes to the public as well as in-service training to pet professional groups, including pet sitters, groomers, veterinary technicians and trainers.
