First Aid for pets

dog-first-aidYou never know when you might have an emergency with your cat or dog. It’s important to know what to include in a pet safety kit. When it comes to emergencies, it’s very important to have your vets phone number and the National Poison Control hot line within easy reach.  Other things that you should keep on hand include a saline solution to flush out your pets eyes,  a muzzle in case your pet gets badly hurt and a turkey baster to help get pet medication down.  You may also want to include forceps, rubber gloves and soft pet food.  You should always be prepared for a potential poisoning. Keep a bottle of hydrogen peroxide in your pets safety kit in case your veterinarian asks you to induce vomiting.  Remember that if you do need to take your pet to the veterinarian, you’ll need easy access to a sturdy pet carrier.
