Following the success of last year’s event we are pleased to once again be offering a talk on canine first aid, in conjunction with Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust. It is on Sunday 18th March at Cockington Visitor Centre at 1.30pm.
Vet Dr John Mather will cover the following topics:
- First aid in the event of an accident
- First aid for common situations
- What to include in a dog first aid kit
- Common poisons & ingestion of objects
- Advice on when to call the vets out of hours
There will also be a raffle in aid of the Cockington Green Heart Appeal, with a dog first aid kit for the winner.
Feedback from last year’s event was positive with comments such as “It was definitely worth going to and I would recommend it to others”.
