Advanced pet first aid level 3 (VTQ) covers much more details about the different injuries and illnesses that can affect dogs and cats. The course has been designed to give the pet owner or pet professional much more information in order to be able to detect early when something is wrong and give the appropriate care.

 

The course also covers about anatomy and physiology of animals and different first aid treatments that are available.  Although the treatment is basically the same between dogs and cats, the advanced course has a dedicated section to cats.
