POORLY animals in need of care in Somerset could soon be looked after by their owners.
Animal lovers who want to learn how to bandage a dog or look after a cat's injuries can go along to a First Aid for Animals Course.
Pet fans on the course will learn how to restrain animals safely, bandage their wounds, learn about first aid and how to transport the animal safely to the veterinary surgery.
Organiser Heather Willcox, of Mudgley near Wedmore, said: "People in the area already knew I was into first aid and a few of them approached me to see if I could do an animal first aid course.

"We already have a few people signed up to the course but we could do with a few more.
"We will use life-size toys during the class instead of real animals and a trained veterinary nurse will be teaching."
