Submitted by Steve on 22:03, 25th Nov, 2016 | 0

On Tuesday we welcomed 9 attendees to our GSPCA dog first aid course at the Animal Shelter in St Andrews.

Despite a cold, windy and wet evening the group spent the evening in the training room at the GSPCA with Manager Steve Byrne.

The attendees learnt a wide variety of ways to help dogs from those suffering with heat exhaustion to those choking.

Betty an English Bull Terrier who is looking for a home made an appearance and the group learnt how to find a heart beat.
