Arizona Equine CPR and First Aid Classes

Do you want to learn equine first aid?

See for yourself why Teri Ann Tate fits all the criteria of meeting and exceeding our standards to be an Az Pet Professional!

Teri Ann Tate, owner of Comfy Pets of AZ in Laveen, is a professional pet CPR and First Aid Pet and Equine Instructor. 
Teri Ann has years of experience caring for a variety of animals through her pet-sitting business and is one of only a few Arizonans qualified to teach first aid care for horses. 

“Most pet owners don’t think about what to do in an emergency,” Tate says. “There are many first aid steps that you can take to help keep an animal stable until a veterinarian can take over. It’s rather like helping a human until the medics arrive.”

Teri Ann's classes cover a range of topics and techniques such as; what to do if your pet has swallowed poison, how to clean a wound and to splint a fractured bone.

Some classes are specifically geared toward children and address safety issues such as how to approach a dog when walking, or how to tell if your pet might be ill.

Teri Ann said her love of animals started when she was very young and when she got her first horse at age 15. Sound familiar? So many girls start out this way! Every girl wants a horse, right?

Teri Ann travels throughout Arizona and Southern California teaching her equine and pet first aid classes. She teaches tirelessly and spends hours preparing classes and creating new content.

Here are a few of Teri Ann's Classes:

Okay, we all live in Arizona because the weather is almost perfect, the sun is almost always shining, the golf courses are luscious, there are multiple and beautiful wide open spaces and endless hiking trails! 

Surprisingly enough these are also places where some “not so delightful” inhabitants hang out in our state! You've heard the news this past week...... Snakes bites are on the rise!! Again! 
Here are a few simple tips to help keep you safe.

If you hike: 
 • Tap ahead of you with a walking stick before entering an area where you can't see your feet. Snakes will try to avoid you if given enough warning. • When hiking in an area known to have snakes, wear long pants and boots if possible
 • Consider purchasing a snake kit Avoid rock piles or tall green grass/bushes where snakes like to rest. 

About 150 people in Arizona are bitten every year. 
Some of Arizona’s rattlesnakes can also be lethal. 

Scottsdale is notorious for having snakebites and s…

National Adopt a dog month

National Adopt a dog month  And National Adopt a Shelter dog month

Are you thinking about adopting a dog? Has the thought crossed your mind in the past few months? If so, that's great! This is the perfect month for you to get down to business and do just that!

You might be looking simply for a companion, maybe a hiking pal, a friend for your grandparents or parents, how about an agility hopeful, or just a happy, warm face to welcome you home each day? Then this might just be the perfect timing!

Across the valley there are numerous places that you can choose from to adopt a dog. Many Shelters are full and have weekend discounts so they can open up space for new dogs. Unfortunately some will be placed on the E-List almost immediately due to its breed, temperament or health.

A dog that is on the "E-List" (to be euthanized) is commonly a dog that might have growled when captured or put into a kennel, but it doesn't necessarily mean they are aggressive.

They were SCARED.
