Hi, I'm Jane, founder of Pet-First-Aid. I love animals and over the years have had many varieties: dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens, mice and a lizard.
I currently have 2 dogs, 2 rabbits, a bearded dragon and a hamster - the joys of having a 9yr old son.
I set up Pet First Aid to encourage pet care professionals and pet owners to be the very best that they can be and look after their animal friends the best they can. Knowing how to carry out first aid on your pet, should they ever need it, gives you extra confidence as an owner and a sense of pride.
Pet-First-Aid and Pets' Rainbow Bridge:
Pets' Rainbow Bridge (PRB) is the company behind Pet-First-Aid (PFA). I set up PRB to provide a much-needed service to pet owners and pet care care professionals. Pet bereavment is an aspect of pet ownershiop that none of us wants to think about until it is upon us, but it it the most difficult aspect of loving and inviting a pet into our family. As such, I set up PRB to help provide free, caring and impartial advice and information about pet funerals - cremation and burials - and to offer pet bereavment counselling to pet owners and advice to pet care professionals. How does this fit in with PFA? Well, to ensure that PRB can remain free to access for everyone that needs it, I set up pet first aid to pay for the berevement work of Pets' Rainbow Bridge. Therefore, everyone that pays for their place on one of our accredited pet first aid courses, not only receives an accredited Pet First Aid certificate, but they have also helped us to continue the pet loss work that we provide, and help owners in their time of need.
I was a teacher of A level and GCSE students for almost a decade and left to concentrate on the world of pets, pet owners and pet care professionals. I have now combined my two passions - teaching and animals, which makes me very happy.
I am a fully qualified teacher, and registered with the Education Workforce Council and hold current DBS certifcation. I have Safeguarding Children qualificationas and of course, am a fully qualified pet first aid instructor and am fully insured. I provide UK accredited first aid and endorsed certification to my first aid learners. I am a ProTrainings certified canine, feline and pet First Aid centre and instructor.
