The CIHA strongly recommends the completion of a First Aid and CPR course, which should be updated as required upon expiry. The more beneficial course is First Aid that also includes infant CPR. However, if in your practice you do not see infants, the decision is yours as to which course is more beneficial for you.
For the practioners who are DVHH members, we strongly encourage you to familiarize yourself with the animal CPR procedures, which you can find at http://members.aol.com/henryhbk/acpr.html.
For those practitioners who have completed both the DVHH and the DHHP, we recommend both courses.
