How To Make First Aid Kit For Your Pet

Keeping a pet first aid kid at home is a great idea since you never know when an accident will occur. You could place a first aid kit with yourself and separately buy the items, or you can buy a ready-made one. Once you make one yourself, utilize a mini plastic tub that has a tight fitting to place the following items:

     1. Important contact numbers.

  • Emergency clinic direction and phone number.
  • Veterinary clinic’s direction and phone number.
  • Phone numbers of poison control center

 

      2.Supplies and equipment

  • Clean towels - paper and cloth
  • Cotton balls
  • Cotton swabs
  • Oral syringe or Eye dropper
  • Feeding tubes of various sizes (once you are taught in how to use them)
  • Magnifying glass
  • Muzzle
  • Metal nail file and nail clippers
  • Penlight
  • Rectal thermometer
  • Scissors
  • Styptic sticks or powders or cornstarch.
  • Tweezers

 

     3. Bandaging Materials

  • Bandage rolls – Vetwrap and gauze
  • Band-Aids (for humans)
  • First aid tape – both adhesive types and paper (easily comes off of skin)
  • Non-stick pads
  • Some sterile square gauze of various sizes.

 

     4. Nutritional Support

  • Rehydrating solution like Pedialyte  or Gatorade
  • Nutritional supplement like VitaCal, Nutri-Cal, or Nutristat
  • High sugar source: Karo syrup

 

     5. Medicines

  • To absorb ingested poisons, keep an Activated charcoal (consult your veterinarian before you use it)
  • Antibiotic ophthalmic ointment for eyes. For example, Terramycin
  • Antidiarrheal medicine like Pet Pectate (ensure that it doesn’t contain salicylates)
  • Cat laxative in paste form
  • Cortisone cream or spray.
  • For allergic reactions, Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) is a must have (obtain dose from your veterinarian)
  • Ear cleaning solution
  • Eye wash solution
  • To make a cat vomit, use Hydrogen peroxide (only utilize directed by a veterinarian)
  • Sterile saline
  • A Triple antibiotic ointment for skin
  • Wound disinfectant such as Nolvasan or Betadine.
