Class 1: Health and First Aid

Accidents do happen, but how the professional groomer is trained and reacts makes all the difference. This certification class ensures that the professional groomer is properly prepared for the most common accidents that can occur in the salon. With the exception of pets with chronic health issues, the professional groomer sees pets more frequently than the veterinarian. Knowing how to decipher what is normal from what is not normal allows the professional groomer to advise pet owners of issues that may need veterinary attention.
