Pet First Aid class

Berkeley-East Bay Humane Society is offering a special two-hour Pet First Aid discussion to prepare pet caretakers for pet medical emergencies. It takes place next Wednesday, March 22, 7-9 p.m., in the BEBHS Training Room, 2700 Ninth Street, Berkeley, CA.

Through video and hands-on instruction, this session prepares you to act with confidence in an emergency and apply basic first aid measures until your pet can get veterinary care. One goal of the class is to help remove those feelings of helplessness in dealing with an injured pet, and to teach you preventive measures that will lessen the chance of injury or illness.

More details at or 510-845-7735, ext. 22. The Pet First Aid class is free, although a $10 donation is appreciated to support abandoned animals at BEBHS. (Mim Carlson, executive director, BEBHS)
