Over the last two Tuesday evenings we have run our cat and dog first aid courses.

Each course started just after 6.30pm and involved learning about how to save a cat or a dogs life and hints and tips on what to do.

Last night we held the Dog First Aid Course which was run by GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne and saw 9 dog lovers learning how to help four legged friends in a number of life saving circumstances.

Molly a beagle owned by the GSPCA Manager popped in half way through for those attending to help look for a heart beat in a dog.
