In 2011 Trish developed an interest in Pet First Aid first when grooming elderly, special needs and medically compromised animals.  Then she noticed there were pet rescue volunteers and animal related workers in the community who needed Pet First Aid Skills when rescuing and working with animals so she took on the challenge of becoming Northern BC's only active Pet First Aid Instructor offering the most comprehensive and up to date Pet First Aid program available today.
