A First-Aid Kit for Pets

November 30, 1986

We say we're going to do it, but then we never get around to it. Now someone else has assembled, all in one plastic box, first-aid supplies for your dog, cat, bird or hamster. The Pet Care Kit is an emergency first-aid and home-care package that contains basic dressings, medications and medical instruments such as a thermometer, tweezers, scissors and surgical gloves. A manual, written by a veterinarian, not only has simple directions to follow for mishaps that may occur at home or during travel but also alerts you to the symptoms that demand a veterinarian's attention. Subjects covered include how to bandage an animal, and what to do if your dog or cat is stung by a bee or bitten by a snake, poisoned, choking, suffering from heat stroke, having convulsions or hit by a car. The kit comes in two sizes: small for cats and small dogs and regular for medium-size and large dogs. Each is $28 (includes tax and shipping) from Petcetera, 10949 Irma Ave., Tujunga 91042.
