When your cat gets hurt, you should be armed with the knowledge and materials necessary to help him. It's a great idea to keep a box of first aid items for your cat on hand. The following items should be included, but the list is not exhaustive:
- Antibacterial ointment
- Cotton Balls
- Gauze pads and bandages
- Hydrogen peroxide (3 percent)
- Petroleum jelly
- Rubbing Alcohol
Take the time now to learn some basic first aid, and if an emergency situation arises, you'll be glad you did. If you wait until your cat is injured before educating yourself on the help he needs, it might be too late.
