Common emergency first aid methods for cats ✅

① BleedingExcessive bleeding can lead to shock. If there is external bleeding, apply direct pressure to stop the bleeding and maintain pressure for at least 10 minutes. If complete hemostasis is not achieved, attempt bandaging approximately 5 cm above the bleeding site. Seek immediate veterinary attention after basic first aid.

② FracturesFractures are usually accompanied by pain, limping, and abnormal limbs. When a fracture is suspected, put a head restraint on the pet to prevent secondary trauma caused by licking. Keep the affected area immobilized and avoid moving the limbs.

③ Breathing difficultiesIf there is respiratory distress caused by an obstruction in the throat or trachea, resulting in labored breathing, difficulty inhaling or exhaling, or heavy panting, try to calm the pet first. Perform the Heimlich maneuver if there is a confirmed obstruction. If the pet has stopped breathing, perform artificial respiration by blowing air into its nose.

④ HeatstrokeWhen signs of heatstroke are observed, provide the pet with water and help cool it down with cold water or a damp towel. If outdoors, immediately move to a shady area and wet the body and limbs with water.

⑤ PoisoningIf the pet has ingested toxic substances and shows symptoms such as weakness, vomiting, or diarrhea, identify the cause of poisoning and seek veterinary assistance immediately. Carry the suspected toxic substance and its packaging with you.

⑥ BurnsThe symptoms of physical or chemical burns are similar. In the case of chemical burns, avoid washing with water and remove the chemical substance first. For burns, rinse with a large amount of running water and prevent the pet from licking the wound. Seek immediate veterinary attention after basic first aid.
