Online course • Learn what to do when animal-related emergencies strike.
Social isolation can be hard at the best of times, but it can be especially harrowing if something goes wrong at home. With response units over-stressed, it’s a good idea to learn a few first aid skills in case of emergencies. We found this Udemy course for pet first aid that stood out with a 4.6 (out of 5) rating from 114 ratings and reviews. At the time that we wrote this, there were 334 students enrolled. That was enough to pique our interest and here’s a quick rundown of what we found.

Why is this course better than other first aid courses online?
We like the ease of coursework on Udemy – its ratings, reviews, course outlines, course previews and creator information. It takes care of the prehistoric and clunky video software used by so many pet health educators online. Is this course better than others like it on Udemy? We can’t say for sure. However, when we applied filters for beginners, cost, duration and ease of learning – this popped up pretty quickly. It’s also one of the few courses that covers more than one or two types of incidents that warrant emergency response. So our advice would be to check it out for yourself and see how you go.
