About Us

We are a team with a shared vision to empower everyone with a dog in their life the skills and confidence to act in an emergency.

Dog First Aid is the first pioneering organization with Internationally Certified qualification in Singapore since 2013.

We have trained thousands of pet business owners and pet owners to provide the emergency care their dogs need before getting to a vet.



Pet Care Professional

Jnanee is a pet care professional. As she has successfully performed CPR on pets before, she strongly believes that it is crucial for pet lovers to learn pet first aid. She is also pursuing further training in pet first aid.

She is passionate about pet education. Over the years, she has written and designed pet care articles infographics for various organisations. In her free time, she loves to play video games, watch Japanese dramas and read European history fiction.



Practicing Nutritional Therapist

Katherine is a practicing Nutritional Therapist (human nutrition) for more than 10 years. She has helped hundreds of clients heal naturally with nutrients. Her passion for nutrition soon spilled over into pets. Today, as a pet wellness advisor with a Singapore-based company, she consults on canine and feline nutrition and writes regularly on various pet wellness topics.

While nutrition is for the overall well-being of the dog, first-responder skills are crucial in an emergency. In wanting to provide better care for her own pets, she took up Canine First Responder training. Recognizing the importance of dog first aid for pet owners and pet care professionals, she hopes to arm as many pet lovers as possible with these life-saving skills and underwent comprehensive training to become a certified Canine First Responder Instructor. Katherine is committed to helping pet owners make informed dietary and lifestyle choices in nurturing healthy and happy pets.
