Certificate in Home and Basic First-Aid Use in Animal Care

Provides those responsible for the day-to-day care animals with a basic, but thorough knowledge of homeopathy and Heilkunst in first aid, emergency situations pending expert evaluation and treatment. This certificate provides you with the tools required to handle such situations as poisonings, insect bites, burns, sprains, strains, coughs, etc. and other situations requiring immediate aid. Often, the need for further treatment is eliminated and recovery is speeded up considerably.
