(Human) first aid training is a basic requirement for crew on a superyacht, but have you ever considered what would happen if faced with an animal emergency, rare as they are? When at sea, some simple skills can make the world of difference in such a situation, and veterinary first aid is something SVS can provide training for. Essential skills include recognising ‘normal’, assessing vitals, being able to report accurately to a vet about the pet’s condition, and keeping them as safe and calm as possible until help arrives. We can talk you through the essentials of a pet first aid kit and the prevention and treatment of common ailments you might come across with seafaring dogs and cats. Contact us for more information.
