CCET to Offer Small Animal First Aid Training Class

As part of Alfred State’s continuing “Campaign 101” initiative to advocate for and prevent cruelty to those creatures who cannot speak up for themselves, its Center for Community Education and Training will offer a small animal first aid training class on Monday, March 26, 2012, from 6-8 p.m. in room 223 of the Agriculture Science Building. An additional session will be offered on Monday, April 16, 6-8 p.m.

Taught by Dr. Doug Pierson, assistant professor in the college’s veterinary technology program, the course will address questions such as the following: Have you ever wondered about how you would perform CPR on your pet? Are you aware of common poisonous products around the home and how you would initiate treatment for your pet should they be exposed to these products? Do you know how to provide initial care of wounds or trauma for your pet? What would you put in a pet first aid kit? This small animal first aid course will answer these questions and more!

To ensure your seat in the class, you MUST register via e-mail at ccet@alfredstate.edu. There is no cost to attend the class.
