Pet Care Hints & Tips

What should I do in an accident?


Whether you own a dog or a cat, it is likely for accidents to occur. Being able to offer temporary treatment in the home can greatly help your pet's chances of recovery. Having a standard pet first aid kit around the home will assist you if required. This is very similar to that of a human first aid kit and should include:

  • Bandages
  • Sticky Tape
  • Sterile Swabs
  • A pet collar
  • Scissors
  • Various patches and swabs to clean wounds on a temporary level, until you can visit a vets practice.

When do I phone the vets?

A call to the vet can sometimes be avoided or delayed. Read on to find out when an emergency call is needed.
