RANDOLPH, NJ- People often take CPR classes after having children, for a specific job requirement, or due to personal a desire to be educated and prepared to help others in an emergency.   A different type of CPR class, not geared towards helping your fellow human, was jointly hosted by The American Animal Hospital and the Randolph public library in early March; Pet / Animal CPR.

Randolph’s highly esteemed American Animal Hospital sent Associate Veterinarian Dr. Julie Jones, along with a few friendly animal assistants, to teach the program at the Randolph library.

The free class, which was open to all Randolph and surrounding area residents, was highly attended and well received.

"I was extremely pleased with the turnout, and enjoyed answering questions from our well-informed and caring pet parents," said Jones.

In addition to being an Associate Veterinarian at American Animal Hospital here in Randolph, Jones has experience working at other busy, multi-doctor practices offering high-level veterinary care in both Manhattan and Northern New Jersey.

Jones has years of experience with emergent patients, and underwent FEMA training in disaster management with the Battery Park City Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). She is passionate about disaster preparedness for animals, and hopes to help pet owners achieve a greater level of understanding.

Many First Aid care basics were covered in the presentation, including bandaging, how to handle stomach illness, CPR, and other potential emergencies. Jones demonstrated on a very cooperative guest dog, while also entertaining and answering many questions from the attendees. 

"I hope to do more of these informative seminars in the future,” said Jones.  “In light of recent events such as Hurricane Katrina and Sandy, disaster management for animals is a topic that deserves more attention."

The American Animal Hospital, located at 1202 Sussex Turnpike in Randolph, offers compassionate care through both traditional and holistic approaches, including preventative medicine, laser surgery, complete dentistry, acupuncture & herbal medicine diagnostics and boarding.

The Randolph Library will continue to offer entertaining and informative workshops every week throughout the spring. For a listing of upcoming events, or to sign up, go to www.randolphnj.org/library.
