BROOKLYN - Organizations Brooklyn Bark and Fido hold a monthly workshop in Prospect Park to equip pet owners with the skills to face emergencies.

Lessons include pet CPR and other emergency treatments that owners can use to save their pet's life.

Instructors say 25 percent of the pets that don't make it when they come to the ER could have been saved by just one of the techniques taught in the workshops.
