 Play it Safe, Party with a Purpose and Go Catty in a Good Way!


April is designated as National Pet First Aid Awareness Month - and we're not fooling!  Show how much you truly love your pets by enrolling in a pet first aid class, keeping a pet first aid kit in your home and vehicle and by being your pet's best health ally at all times.

As a Pet Tech certified instructor, Arden shares these pet first aid tips:
  • Fortify your cell phone. Be sure your phone carries contact info for your veterinarian, emergency after-hours veterinary clinic and ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (888-426-4435). Also, download your smartphone with the Pet Tech PetSavers App ($4.99) - a real lifesaver of info you will need during a pet emergency. Click HERE to down load the App and be sure to add the code, ARDEN.
  • Keep paws off your sugar-free gum. One of the most dangerous poisons to dogs is the chemical, xylitol, found in sugar-free gums. Don't leave your pack of gum in your open purse, counter top or other place a curious canine can sniff and eat.
  • Do be down in the mouth. One way to check your pet's health is by gauging the color of the gums. Use your index finger and gently press against the gums for two seconds. Healthy gums should bounce back to bubblegum pink in color. Consult your veterinarian if your pet's gums are pale or bright red.

Arden customizes these hands-on training classes up and down the West Coast. Sign up for a pet first aid, safety, CPR and wellness class and earn a certificate. Arden, along with her tolerant assistants - her dog, Chipper and cat, Zeki - will conduct three classes this month at the Palm Springs Animal Shelter. Register today by contacting Arden  and visit her Pet First Aid 4 U site.
