Pet first aid kit :


A good first aid kit is very necessary for emergencies. There should be a first aid kit in your car, at your job site, and at home. The more complete your first aid kit is the better you can deal with emergencies as they come up. One should keep the first aid kit ready for emergency. It will be very late if we wait for emergencies. The main objectives of first aid is to relieve suffering, to save a life and to prevent further physical or psychological injuries until you can reach or be reached by qualified health care personnel. Consider all the possible emergencies which can happen. If you do not want to prepare your own kits, there are very good prepackaged kits in the market. Go thoroughly their contents carefully so that you know whether or not the kit is appropriate as there are also kits which are nothing more than band aids. You will need to know whether the kit you are purchasing has perishables such as aspirin in it so that they can be replaced when they expire. If you decide to prepare your own kits, you will find that many supplies will come packed in larger quantities than you find in a single prepared kit. Divide the packages into different kits you are making. First aid kits should be kept in containers that are labeled. One should keep the box in a single location in your house, car and work place. Everyone in the house should know where it is.

What a first aid kit should contain?

Some basic items that all first aid kits should contain are a Rectal Thermometer which can be the glass kind or the newer electronic kind. The electronic ones beep when they finish registering the temperature and they are slightly smaller than the glass kind. They also do not break as easily. They have a battery which will need replacing and they are more expensive then the glass ones. A lubricating jelly to lubricate thermometer, instant hot and cold compresses, adhesive tape to secure bandages - both non-stick tape (i.e. Dermicel or another brand of paper tape) and water proof tape, blunt tipped scissors, bandage scissors etc.

Conclusion:

Before you give any animal any medication, please consult your veterinarian about the dosage and the side effects. You should call your veterinarian for your animal's dosages. That way you can place a list in your first aid kit with specifics for your pets before any emergency happens.
