As we are reopening, we are planning to reintroduce our Pet First Aid classes in the new year (2022).

Find out more about our reopening plans.

First aid is an important part of taking care of the ones you love. Your animal companion is more than just a pet – they are a member of your family! With that in mind, do you know how to recognize a potentially serious condition in your pet? Would you know how to help if they are injured?

Be the best pet owner you can be by attending Pet First Aid Level 1 and 2 at the OHS!
