MECA PET CPR and First Aid Course
You love animals, now get the training necessary to help pets in distress. Dr. Marla Lichtenberger, owner of Milwaukee Emergency Center for Animals, teaches small pet and animal first aid and CPR certification courses. The training has paid off handsomely for the owner of a German Shepherd mix that ended up at MECA. “Their dog was bloated and was trying to vomit, and the owner remembered from my course how serious those symptoms are and brought him in right away,” recalls Dr. Lichtenberger. “That quick action saved the dog’s life,” she said. The Wisconsin Humane Society first presented this popular course, primarily designed for new pet owners. “We have a first aid course every 3-4 months and donate all the money to a humane society or rescue organizations,” says Dr. Lichtenberger. This Pet CPR and first aid training course will teach pet owners everything they need to know in an emergency situation. The fee is $60 and includes a first aid book, CPR certification certificate and a 2-hour course with hands-on demonstrations.
