WELCOME TO PET TECH PET CPR AND FIRST AID
Did you know according to the American Animal Hospital Association that 25% more pets could have been saved if only one pet first aid technique was applied prior to veterinary treatment! Studies have shown that only 10% of pets will survive heart attacks unless proper CPR techniques were applied prior to veterinary intervention.
WHAT SIDE OF THE PERCENTAGES DO YOU WANT TO BE ON?

Hi there… My name is Sandra Porter-Gonyea. I started grooming in my teen years so as of 2019 I have been in the industry for about 46 years. I tried to quit a few times but kept coming back. I was born to do this. Part of my career in caring for pets has been having an understanding about dog/cat health and being able to notice problems on the grooming table and bring an awareness of health to the pet owners I service. Being a Pet Tech professional gives me validation and skills to take my pet care to the next level.
Also, with the changes happening quickly in the grooming industry, I feel it is imperative that all groomers have a health and safety background. Pet owners are now demanding regulation and being able to teach groomers and other pet professionals about pet health and safety puts the pet professionals I teach ahead of the game.
Another, bigger reason is because of a little calico kitten named “Harley”. Harley was about 6 months old eating her dry food when an older cat that bullied her ,jumped on her. I witnessed this and immediately knew she was in trouble. She inhaled the dry food and couldn’t breathe. I never felt so helpless in all my life. I tried many different things to try and save her. My lack of knowledge developed in to hysteria as she died in my arms. I never ever want to experience that feeling ever again. And if I can prevent another pet owner from experiencing that pain, I want to be able to do this through my classes and instruction. We all should know this. Scary things happen. Knowing what to do and the steps to take will go a long way in servicing your clients, your own pets, and the industry itself.
