What You Need to Know about Pet First Aid
First aid in general is not a topic we are well aware of, and pet first aid often takes a backseat when everything is going well. However, as a pet parent, there are certain tips you must know and keep in mind about pet first aid, if the situation were to ever arise:
Mitigation: Reduce the risk of injury or incidents by making sure your surroundings are pet proof. Keep harmful chemicals out of their reach, poisonous food items away from them and no jutting furniture that may cause cuts.
Stay Calm: Before jumping into a frenzy of action, remind yourself to stay calm and breathe through it. Think first and then act. Use a soothing voice and avoid confrontational body language. Approach the pet from the side to not make it worse.
In case of fractures: Muzzle the pet if possible and prevent it from running off to avoid further injuries. Lay down your pet on a flat surface and you can cover the bone with common household items like a piece of cloth, bubble wrap etc. Transport your pet immediately to the vet on a stretcher.
In case of seizures: Gently move your pet away from objects that might harm it and time the seizure. After it has passed, keep your pet warm and contact your vet.
