Dogma Catma Pet Sitting's founder, Jordan Di Marco is proud to offer courses in CPR, First Aid and Care for your Pets!
Our pets are our family members, companions and friends, and we would do anything to protect them. Would you know how to care for your pet should an emergency arise? According to the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) 1-out-of-4 more pets would survive, if just one pet first aid technique was applied prior to getting emergency veterinary care.
