Why The Pet Tech Course Is For You

What will you learn?


Did you know according to the American Animal Hospital Association that 25% more pets could have been saved if only one pet first aid technique was applied prior to veterinary treatment! Studies have shown that only 10% of pets will survive heart attacks unless proper CPR techniques were applied prior to veterinary intervention.

What if you could learn a set of skills that could help a pet by:

  • Lessening pain from an injury.
  • Speed up healing of a wound.
  • Reduce the cost of veterinary intervention.
  • Saving their life.

If all of these sound important to you, then this workshop is for you!

Pets bring us joy and love to our lives and work. What if you knew how to:

Perform effective CPR. (Studies have shown that only 10% of pets will survive heart attacks unless proper CPR techniques were applied prior to veterinary intervention.)

  • Help a pet that is choking on a toy or treat.
  • Wrap a bleeding injury to minimize blood loss and begin the healing process.
  • Systemically assess a pet for injuries.
  • How to put together a pet first aid kit.

This is a 5 hour comprehensive hands on workshop. This is far more than a lecture. You will practice and learn the following techniques on a stuffed pet. 

  • Priorities and Concerns of Emergency Procedures
  • Restraining and Muzzling
  • Primary Pet Assessments
  • CPR
  • Rescue Breathing
  • Choking Management
  • Bleeding, Shock, and Fracture Protocols
  • Poisonings
  • Insect and Snake Bites
  • Heat and Cold Injuries
  • Seizures
  • Vitals
  • Pet First Aid Kits
  • Snout To Tail Assessments

These skills are critical for pet care professionals and extremely important for all pet owners as well. 

Every student will have use of a stuffed demo dog to practice these life-saving skills on, as well as receive a handbook for future reference. Let’s not forget the certificate you can frame to proudly show off your life-saving skills.


Your Instructor

Anjie Coates


My name is Anjie Coates, I'm Pet Tech Instructor #2383. I’m one of the owners of Furry Tails Grooming Salon & Spa. I became a Pet Tech Instructor because when I was an Animal Control Officer I had a Pointer named Cooper. Cooper came from a cruelty case, and was little more than bones. He was 26 pounds when I got him, he was blind, diabetic from organ shut down, and I adopted him. I had no experience with diabetes, needles, blood draws or a dog so malnourished his heart may simply quit. I did as much research as I could but I needed hands on training. What I found were courses that gave me what would be ideal in a first aid kit, but little in the way of practical skills. I had to go to my vet and ask him for training. Cooper lived for 6 years after I got him. They initially gave him a life expectancy of 6 months. When I returned to grooming full time I took every course I could for first aid and CPR, but again there was no hands on training. I wanted more. I didn’t want to feel that I was so grossly unprepared for something that could occur. For years I took any first aid course I could, always leaving dissatisfied. Then I found the Pet Tech course. I left there feeling like I had not only learned the things I had wanted to learn, needed to learn, but that I was finally prepared. I knew what to do if a situation arose, I wasn’t guessing anymore. I want to give that reassurance of knowledge, of preparedness to others, so they know that should an emergency arise they could handle it. They had practical skills they could rely on in times of emergency that they could employ to save a life. These skills since they were practiced wouldn’t be something they’d be doing for the first time read from a card, or off a phone, it would be muscle memory, and they could make a difference, and save a life.
