Veterinary First Aid Kit

The world around us is unpredictable. A pet can get an accidental injury even within the apartment, not to mention walking on the street and going outdoors. So that in a difficult moment you can help him, a properly equipped first-aid kit should always be at hand. What to put in it?
What should be in the first-aid kit of a dog, cat and other pets?
We list the main items that should be included in a veterinary medicine cabinet.

First Aid Means.
– special sterile bandages, bandages (for example, Andover), napkins,

– alcohol-free disinfectants,

– wound healing ointments.

Sorbents – for quick help with indigestion or food allergies.
Sedative. A safe pet product based on natural ingredients recommended by a veterinarian. It will help in stressful situations. Mandatory for suspicious animals.
Thermometer.
Eye and ear cleansers. Be sure to stock up on special hygiene lotion for regular cleaning. If your pet is prone to otitis media or his eyes often become inflamed, supplement the medicine cabinet with anti-inflammatory drugs. Depending on the diagnosis, they will be prescribed by a veterinarian.
Anthelmintic. The drug should be selected in accordance with the type, age and weight of the pet. Strictly follow the instructions for use.
Veterinary First Aid Kit
The product for fleas. Fleas are the most common external parasites of dogs and cats. They are active all year round and reproduce very quickly. Often the owner notices fleas at the pet even when there are a lot of them. In order not to waste time searching for a drug, it is better to play it safe and prepare for a possible situation in advance. Get an antiparasitic product suitable for your pet’s appearance, age, and weight.
Tick ​​preparation. Ticks are potential carriers of dangerous infections, many of which are fatal. Your pet should be protected from them at any time when the outdoor temperature is above +5 ° C. The tick remedy should always be in the medicine cabinet. Especially if you are planning a trip with your pet to nature or to the country!
Tick-twisting machine. If you can’t protect the pet from ticks, the parasite will have to be removed on its own (or consult a veterinarian). In this case, supplement the first-aid kit with a special tick-tightener. You can buy it at a veterinary pharmacy.
Why tick-borne twist? Parasites are strongly not recommended to be removed with fingers or other improvised objects. Squeezing the body of the tick, you make it splash out the drunk blood at the site of the bite, and with it the pathogens. Thus, the likelihood of infection increases. But a special tool allows you to firmly grab the tick as close to the head as possible and does not exert pressure on it.

Contacts of the nearest veterinary clinics (including round-the-clock) and veterinarians who can be consulted at any time.
Ideally, you will need several veterinary medicine kits. One will always be in your home, the other in the car, and the third can be left in the country.
Please note that this is the basic equipment of the first-aid kit. Depending on the individual characteristics of your ward and the state of his health, you can supplement it. Discuss this issue with your pet’s veterinarian!
