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.
Had my first emergency with my foster, Cooper, yesterday. All of his boy parts were ALL out. I quickly grabbed the sugar, which I learned in my first aid class, and threw a handful on him. Afterwards, everything seemed to be working fine, but I called my vet just in case and she told me I did everything correctly and he was gonna be fine. I don't want to do that again!!! I'm pretty sure I'd have rushed him to AVS and spent a few hundred dollars fixing this if I hadn't taken this class!!! Thanks Kat!
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 Pet CPR/ First Aid Instructor in 2016 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 Pet CPR, First Aid, and care for dogs and cats.

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.
