Cat First Aid Kit

Each cat owner should collect a special first-aid kit to quickly help the pet in case of trouble. Even a healthy cat can cut itself, find a tick on the street or get poisoned.

Collect such a first aid kit is not difficult. Check out the list of essential medicines and tools.

Items in the cat kit
The most important document of a pet is a veterinary passport, which is issued at the first visit to the veterinary clinic. Also keep nearby contacts of the cat doctor and the round-the-clock hospital. So you save yourself from panic in a critical situation.

Even if regular visits to the vet are available to you, not all illnesses and procedures require a visit to the clinic. Here is what should lie in the first-aid kit for first aid to the cat:

Dressings – bandages, cotton, gauze, rubber band and adhesive plasters. Need for injuries and injuries;
Digital Thermometer. A mercurial cat will not work: it can break and injure a pet;
Scissors with blunt ends. Will help to cut the hair around the wound. The ends should not be sharp, so as not to injure brisk fluffy;
Tweezers without teeth. Suitable for pulling the sting of a wasp or tick;
Syringes of different sizes – insulin, one-cube and five-cube.
Liquid drugs will not work to give your pet without special tools:

Pipette for instillation into eyes, ears or nose;
Syringe without a needle for the introduction of liquid drugs in the mouth;
Syringe for therapeutic enemas.
Most items are in the human first aid kit, so do not have to buy a lot of things.

Medicines for the cat’s first aid kit
Do not buy home all the veterinary pharmacy: most likely, most drugs are not useful.

However, it is better to buy some medicines in advance to protect the cat and its nerves. We give a list of such drugs:

Allergy medications – suprastin, tavegil, dexamethasone. Will help with the sudden onset of allergy in a pet;

Do not self-cure pet: it can be harmful. Use specific drugs only on the recommendation of a veterinarian.

Paste for removing wool from the stomach – for fluffy cats;
Eye hygiene drops. Especially useful for cats with flat faces;
