Just in case you haven't heard, the Calgary Zoo has an adult program running this month (Oct 22) that is called "Pet First Aid - Reptiles and Amphibians" and it only costs $20.
Try this link. Otherwise, go to the calgary zoo website and look under adult education programs. The zoo vets will be talking about preventing illness and injury in your pet and the proper restraint techniques for an injured animal. There will be slides and live animals.
