India- Simple first aid tips for pet parents




(MENAFN - NewsBytes) Yourpetdeserves the best.

But when you bring a non-human mate home, you should be prepared for good as well as bad times.

Although we sincerely hope such a situation doesn't arise, but if your doggy or cat (or some other pet) falls sick, or gets hurt somehow, you should know what to do.

Here are simple first-aid tips for all pet parents.

Reduce risk; Do not panic

Reduce risk: Lower risk of injury or infection by eliminating risky and harmful substances from your pet's environment.

Do not panic: In case some mishap takes place, do not panic - stay calm, think first, and then act. Jumping into a situation anxiously will further stress your pet. Talk in a soothing voice and react with a relaxed body language to comfort your friend.

In case of broken bones and food poisoning

Broken bones: If your pet has a fracture or has broken a bone or two, avoid further injury by preventing the animal from running off. Further, put it on a flat surface and take it to the vet as soon as possible for treatment.

Poisoning: If you think your pet has ingested poison, avoid mouth-to-snout resuscitation, as it might cause contamination in yourself.

Vomiting: If your pet has been vomiting, and you can't figure out why - try taking a sample of the vomit to the vet and get it checked for any poisons.

Choking: Meanwhile, if your pet is struggling to breathe properly, check for any foreign objects in its mouth. Try to remove it carefully, if possible. Otherwise, take your pet to the vet soon.

In case of a heatstroke and bleeding wound

Heatstroke: If you witness signs of a heatstroke in your pet, such as panting, reddened gums and excessive drooling- try cooling it down using a damp, cool tower, until you reach the vet for treatment.

Bleeding: If your pet has a bleeding wound, place gauze on it and maintain pressure until bleeding slows down. Also, take it to the vet as soon as possible.
