Canine Crisis Management

Canine Crisis Management

At any time, your dog – a member of your family, may have a remote medical crisis in which you need to care for them.

Your dog is a member of your family, and will travel the world with you. Many people take Wilderness First Aid and CPR courses to assist in helping other humans in their time of crisis, but what about your dog? What skills do you have to help your dog if they get into a situation where there is little to no emergency medical assistance? Can you help them if they are injured?

Knowledge in Canine Crisis Management may help save your pets life! This course is not a replacement veterinarian care, but designed for people who will be taking their dogs to remote locations which are two hours or more away from urgent medical care. For example a multi-day canoe trip, mountaineering expedition, long road trip, etc.

The Canine Crisis Management is designed to advance your knowledge base and confidence to assist a pet who has become injured or ill and is more than two hours away from veterinary care. The course focuses on administering proper care to your pet, dealing with wilderness crisis situations, and evacuating them from the situation.

Topics covered in the course include:
  • Airway obstruction
  • Injuries from heat and cold
  • Porcupine quills
  • Skunk sprays
  • Snake Bites
  • Wound Care
  • Administering medications
  • Animal fights and bites
  • Bear Attacks
  • Camping with dogs
  • Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
  • Choking
  • Emergency Back Country Evacuation
  • Eye, ear and nose injuries
  • Finding your pets pulse
  • Pet proofing your home
  • Preventing a lost pet while travelling
  • Recognising Poisoning
  • Recognise and manage many types of injuries – bleeding, bone fractures, contusions, scrapes, punctures, lacerations, strains and sprains
  • Safe Transportation of your dog
  • Seizures
  • Spinal, bone and joint injuries
  • Tick Removal
  • Treating Infections
  • Volume Shock, unconsciousness, vomiting, dehydration and diarrhea
  • And MORE!

This hands-on course allows participants to learn and practice CPR, and assist a choking dog. The course also demonstrates how to adapt household items and back country items such as backpacks, duct tape, jackets, rope, saran wrap, scarfs, and sticks into crisis management tools.

The Canine Crisis Management course is a great course for individuals working in the pet industry such as groomers, as well as anyone who travels with their dog into the back country. The course is also of great benefit to those who work professionally in the outdoors such as Sled Dog mushers and outdoor educators.

**DO NOT BRING YOUR DOG TO THE COURSE** This course is for humans to care for pets. We have found in the past that dogs do not appreciate being bandaged, tied, and moved around unnecessarily
