This course offers a comprehensive and highly informative overview of common medical and surgical emergencies that dog owners may encounter. We will provide advice to help recognise symptoms and the actions needed to give your pet the best chance of a positive outcome in the first few moments after an emergency situation has begun.
Dogs are lovely, and we adore them, but do we know how to take good care of our four-legged friends? This course will study dogs’ behaviour and body language and debunk all the dog care and training myths. We will also answer your questions and help you become the best owner your dog deserves.
As cats enter their senior years (i.e. seven years or older), like humans, they will slow down and become more prone to age-related ailments . They may also suffer from painful joints and may not be able to jump or groom themselves like they used to. Kidney and thyroid disease are also common and may result in overweight issues. Dental problems may affect their appetite; hence the cats will start to lose weight as they age.
As with older humans, pets can develop a variety of problems associated with old age. The onset of arthritis may make them less active or less able to groom themselves; their drinking and eating habits may change due to dental, renal or thyroid diseases; and they may either gain or lose weight!
Does it feel a bit like you are entering a warzone as soon as you start showering your dog and cutting their nails? Sometimes even the most experienced owners are overwhelmed when grooming well-behaved pets. In this course, the SPCA groomer will teach you all of the basic dog-grooming skills you need to know and share tips to help you advance your skills as you practise at home. Whether you are a novice or an experienced owner looking to improve your grooming skills, this course will not disappoint you.
Helpers play a large and significant part in the life of Hong Kong and are important care givers for many pets. This course is designed specifically to provide helpers with the information needed for them to play their part in looking after our canine friends.
The SPCA was appointed by the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) to deliver training courses to licensed dog breeders, traders and their staff as required under the Cap 139B regulations.
These training courses are designed to improve animal health, care and welfare. We are planning to re-launch the courses in Q1 of 2024 and the dates and time will be announced at a later stage. Please complete the contact form if you are interested in joining.
