Jean Brillman, a Pet Tech First Aid/CPR Instructor and owner of Angel Pet Sitting, joins the Pet Tech family to celebrate the 12th annual National Pet First Aid Awareness Month, April 1-30, 2011. National Pet First Aid Awareness Month is intended to promote the importance of basic pet first aid knowledge for pet owners. According to the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), 25 percent more pets would survive if just one pet first aid technique were applied prior to getting emergency veterinary care. Knowing what to do in the initial minutes of an accident or trauma can be critical to a pet’s life. Pet owners that are trained in pet first aid and CPR are better prepared to handle routine and life threatening emergencies.
Jean Brillman recently became a Pet Tech instructor and is now offering classes in and around the Philadelphia, PA area. The Pet Tech Petsaver program offers hands-on training in Pet First Aid and CPR procedures. Not only does it teach pet parents and professionals what to do in pet emergency situations, but it also includes important information regarding care of senior pets and pet dental care. The Pet Tech Program will educate pet parents and give them the confidence to help them save their pet’s life in an unexpected emergency.
Pet Tech is the first international training center for pet first aid and care. Their national network of instructors promote “caring, conscientious, responsible and loving pet ownership.” Pet Tech’s mission is to “improve the quality of pet’s lives, one owner at a time.”
