We offer hands on Pet CPR & First Aid classes (for dogs and cats) in the Greater St. Louis Metro Area.
The PetTech ® courses were created specifically to educate pet parents and professionals and fill the gap between home care maintenance and emergency care in the field, prior to veterinary care, if and when necessary. We teach people what they can do to enhance the quality of their pet's life through day to day actions and what to do in the event of a medical emergency. The programs are designed to compliment veterinary care and save precious time when seconds count.
I want to give a quick shout out to the Jefferson County Animal Control. They had us out to get their folks trained in Pet CPR & First Aid this past week. They are a great group of people who really know their stuff! They have an adoption shelter as well as investigate abuse claims, keep tabs on breeding kennels & boarding facilities, help locate missing pets and so much more. I had no idea how much they did for their community and I have a lot of respect for the work they do! They are located at
7105 Shelter Rd.

I want to give a big thank you to MEDLIN PET COMPANY in Sullivan, MO! They set the bar extremely high when it comes to the care they give their clients. They are having us out again to make sure all of their staff is trained and current with Pet CPR & First Aid. That kind of dedication to excellence in every aspect of what they do is hard to come by.
They offer boarding, daycare, grooming, and training in a beautiful facility and the staff is as friendly as they come!
Kat does a wonderful job. She is a great information source, and teaches a lot of hands on exercises. I had her come out to my facility so that my employees and I could be CPR & First Aid certified for all of our guests. We all agreed the course was well worth it and we learned a lot of useful information. Kat was very flexible and fit my schedule for when it worked well with everyone to attend, and she brought all of the equipment needed including tables which was great! Highly recommend.
Took a class with Kat at Midwest Pet CPR and First Aid today and was very impressed with the depth of content and the accessible learning format.
We use Kat for Pet CPR & First Aid classes at The Academy of Pet Careers! She is accommodating, a great teacher and the curriculum is just what we are looking for to go along with our current courses. Thank you!
My name is Kat. I started out in the pet industry in 1994 and have been a pet groomer since 2004, specializing in dogs with disabilities and special needs. I became a PetTech® certified CPR/ First Aid Instructor after having personal experiences where CPR and rescue breathing were required. Sharing those experiences with others made me realize how important this knowledge is and how many people don't have it. Whether a pet care professional or a loving pet parent, everyone needs to be educated in what to do during an emergency involving their furry family members.
Through a mixture of lecture, power point presentation, and hands-on skills practice, you will gain the knowledge and skills needed to care for your pets in almost any situation. The classes cover how to take simple preventative measures and what to do in emergency situations.
PetTech® is the first international training company dedicated to CPR, First Aid, and Care for dogs and cats. PetTech® teaches information in a hands-on practice environment to give students the opportunity to internalize the information. All PetTech® Instructors go through rigorous training and work closely with one another to share learning practices. As instructors we all have the same goal: to help educate both parents and professionals on proper care for their pets.
