The Electric City Pittie Committee and Best Friends Animal Hospital are teaming up for a hands-on training session that could help you save your pet’s life. It’s on March 23rd at 10:30 a.m. at the Great Falls Clinic (3010 15th Avenue South).
You will learn how to clear an obstructed airway from your companion animals, how to perform lifesaving CPR for our furry family members and will have the opportunity for a Q&A session with a Veterinarian from Best Friends Animal Hospital as well as the Electric City Pittie Committee. The cost of the session is $10. Registration includes breakfast snacks, a certificate of completion, hands on use of companion animal CPR training animals and printed educational materials.
