About Four Footed Family:
My name is Laura McCallion, I am the Lead Instructor and Founder of Four Footed Family. For 20 years I have been teaching people how to help one another in the event of illness or an accident through traditional First Aid & CPR training.
After the very sudden and unexpected death of one of my very beloved dogs, Chance, I began questioning whether I had missed a sign or didn't see something that could have helped save Chance's life. I went in search of knowledge and what I found was a new path for my life. I thought, having owned pets forever that I knew a lot about proper care and emergencies that could happen with them, however, through my training to become a Pet Emergency Care Instructor, I discovered that there are so many things I didn't know. Our pets can't tell us when something hurts and often they mask it when they are in pain so becoming very familiar with what your pet's "normal" is can go a long way to knowing quickly when something is wrong. I have made it my mission to share what I have learned, and so much more with pet families and professionals so that just as I have helped people be prepared for the worst day of someone else's life, I could help pet parents, families, and pet professionals be prepared to do whatever they can to help in the event of the worst day in an animal's life.
I hope you will join one of our classes and realize that you have so much to give an injured or ill animal and your help could save a life.
