Free pet first aid courses are being offered by Quarrington Veterinary Surgery to its clients.
The monthly sessions are run by veterinary surgeon Gemma Bourne and registered veterinary nurse Samantha Shand.
Receptionist Susan Edwards said: “These are proving very popular and are receiving very good reviews from those who have attended the initial courses.”
There is currently a waiting list so those interested in taking part should call 01529 307878 to register a place.
The course is just one evening of a couple of hours, shared with knowledgeable veterinary staff.
Susan added: “People who have attended have said that it has given them much better ‘owner confidence’ in dealing with any unexpected emergencies should they arise.
“People especially enjoy the question and answer section at the end, as you always learn something new from each individuals personal experiences.”
