Save the Contact Information For Both Your Regular Vet and a 24 Hour Emergency Pet HospitalKeep the contact information for local veterinarians and pet hospitals saved to your phone and handy at home. Having the numbers immediately available can save valuable time if your pet should become injured.
PoisoningKnow what foods and plants can be toxic to your cat or dog as well as the signs of having been poisoned such as unusual behavior, foaming at the mouth, rapid or shallow breathing and blood from the mouth or in stool or urine. Always keep the number for the ASPCA Pet Poison hotline 888-426-4435 on hand.
Get the Red Cross Pet First Aid AppYes, there IS an app for that, and we are mighty thankful for this one. In an emergency we can not always count on remembering what to do in every common scenario, and with this help you do not need to. The right information at the right moment saves lives.
Keep a Pet First Aid Kit ReadyIf your cat or dog is injured and bleeding, immediate care is required to avoid infection. Create a pet first aid kit containing important supplies such as sterile gauze, a clean towel, hydrogen peroxide, medical tape, and bottled water.
There are many dangers common to all animals, such as ingesting toxic substances or choking. Some pets, such as short muzzled small dogs are more prone to drowning in very small amounts of water. Other may be more prone to medical emergencies like seizures. Know what dangers are common to all animals as well as ones specific to the breed of your dog or cat.
