Cat First Aid Kit Supplies Online

 

Contrary to popular belief, cats do not have nine lives. Keeping a cat first aid kit at home can prevent serious injuries or save your cat's life. The most common accidents in cats are soft tissue injuries like bruises or contusions, lacerations or bite wounds, scratches or wounds on the eye, mouth injuries or fractured teeth, and abrasions or superficial wounds. There are ways to prevent or reduce these kinds of accidents. Cats are more likely to be at risk when they are outside. Cats that roam free outdoors are vulnerable to accidents, attacks, and fights with other cats. If your cat loves being outdoors, be prepared with first aid kits for cats so that any injuries can be treated quickly.

In the event of an illness, injury, or poisoning, having an understanding of what to do in first aid (and what not to do) can make a significant difference in your cat's recovery, safety, and comfort. A plan of action can also reduce emotional stress, as you'll know what to do whenever a problem arises. 

While you should see your veterinarian immediately if your cat suffers from a wound, you should keep some basic supplies on hand to ease your cat's discomfort until your appointment. It's important to remember that cat first aid shouldn't replace veterinary care for your cat, but it can help minimise additional harm.

A cat first aid kit is easy to assemble when you have the right supplies. A cat care kit should include the following items:

  • Gauze pads
  • Adhesive tape
  • Cotton balls or swabs
  • Disposable gloves
  • Scissors, tweezers
  • Antiseptics, Antibacterials
  • Oral syringe 
  • Handwash
  • Towels
  • Flashlight
  • Styptic gel/powder
  • Your veterinarian's phone number, clinic name, address, as well as local veterinary emergency clinics

Make sure you keep your kit out of the reach of children and check your pack every few months to ensure nothing has expired.
