Connecting People and Nature #6

ARE you keeping your pets happy?

We all know that Pets are a big commitment , but they don’t always have to be if you stay up on whats current!

Ive talked about Pets and the benefits of adopting animals from rescue agencies rather then from a breeder. Im not saying either one is always a negative but you have to know the cost and benefits of both. So, if you haven’t went through that post maybe take a second and get some information before reading this one!

Today, we will go over pet products and how to keep your pet happy and healthy. Some might say “happy wife/husband equals happy household” but in this case I believe it to be “happy pet, happy household”.

5 Things To Know About Pet First-Aid

This varries depending on the type of pet you own but here are some helpful tips about taking care of you furry friend.

1.) Broken Bones: Do NOT try to reset a fracture yourself, Do NOT use an antiseptic or ointments on open fractures, and always take you pet to the vet immediately

2.)Poisoning: Consumption of the poisonous product will lead to certain illness thus in order to reduce the side-effects immediately try to induce vomiting in your pet. Afterwards, collect anything that your pet has vomited or chewed, wrap it in a plastic bag, and bring it to the veterinarian’s office.

3.)Vomiting: Until the vomiting has stopped feed nothing to your pet. You can then slowly reintroduce water and then a bland diet. Moreover, If the vomiting contains blood or it is frequent, contact the veterinarian immediately.

4.)Choking: There is a quick need to rush to a vet if your pet becomes unconscious. Worthwhile travelling you can look for the object which might be making an obstruction. It can be the tongue of your pet or something else and if witnessed, try to remove it gently.

5.) Burns:

  • The primary goal is to reduce the burning sensation and this can be achieved by pouring the cold water on the affected area.
  • Afterwards, a pack of a cool compress must be implied for about 5 to 6 minutes.
