First Aid/Emergency for Cats

All cats that are in state of emergency should be seen a veterinarian as soon as possible. If you are fostering a cat, you need to call the rescue contact who will call the veterinarian to get the cat seen as soon as possible. Never attempt to medicate the cat, and never give a cat painkillers or any medications meant for humans. It could be deadly for the cat.

The following are considered an emergency and the cat needs to be seen by veterinarian:

  • Difficulty breathing, especially with an open mouth, or if gums are white and choking
  • Lack of urination for 24 hours, or straining with blood when urinating
  • Paralysis of any kind, or any difficulty walking or keeping body balance
  • Not eating for more than 24 hours
  • Vomiting multiple times in 12 hours, or continuously
  • Lethargy
  • Collapse
  • Falling from a height

Please Alter Your Pet!
Did you know that the pet birth rate in the U.S. is 5,000 pets born per hour? Here are some other facts:

  • Millions of cats and dogs are in pounds, shelters, and foster homes, waiting for a family to adopt them.
  • 20 million cats, dogs and other pets are killed each year simply because there are not enough homes for them.
  • There are countless strays that survive just long enough to bring more strays into the already overpopulated world.
  • Every animal born uses up a home for one that is already in a pound, shelter, or foster home.

Don’t be part of the problem – be part of the solution!
Take action – spay or neuter your pet – and encourage others to do so as well!

Did You Know …

In addition to helping pet overpopulation, spaying/neutering your pet has direct benefits for both you and your pet, be it a cat, dog, or rabbit:

  • Spaying/neutering reduces or eliminates the risk of several type of cancers, including testicular/prostate cancer in males and mammary/reproductive cancer in females.
  • Spaying/neutering leads to lower levels of aggression (especially in males) that make your pet easier to manage and more relaxed, and reduce behavioral issues such as spraying and defending territory.
  • Spaying/neutering gives your pet better general health, more happiness, and a longer life.
