Physicians from IVEC - Central Indiana's original 24-hour emergency and critical care clinic known for its PET-E-911 emergency call line - will lead attendees through a variety of first aid scenarios. Head trauma, shock, bleeding, heat stroke, drowning, electric shock, paralysis, and other emergencies will be discussed, followed by hands-on practice. Attendees will learn how to approach an injured animal, how to muzzle and/or restrain, how to carry and transport, and how to bandage and splint.
A "ResusciDog" - a life-sized canine mannequin - will be used to demonstrate various treatment techniques, including CPR. IVEC personnel will have a variety of other animals present and prepared to interact with class participants. Attendees are asked not to bring their own pets to the session.
