Basic First Aid
For Dogs & Cats

Basic First Aid for Dogs and Cats

Most of us regard our pets as members of the family. When accidents strike, it's only natural for panic to set in.

But if your pet has suffered an accident, you must act quickly and calmly. Knowing the proper ways to address a host of potential incidents could save you from losing the one you love.

Traffic Accidents

Traffic accidents are the most common cause of severe injury to dogs and cats. When the unfortunate occurs, approach the pet with caution as even loving, domestic animals tend to react aggressively when in pain.

Move the pet as little as necessary. If you must move the animal, slide a blanket beneath it. Seek the help of another and hoist the pet gently from the street to a safer area. Check the animal's heartbeat and look for signs of hemorrhaging. Stem severe bleeding by pressing a clean, cloth pad or handkerchief over the fresh wound, constricting blood flow with a temporary bandage. Contact the nearest veterinary surgeon and warn him/her of your arrival.

Burns

Clean off any offending substances and immerse the burned body part in cold, fresh running water. Contact a veterinarian as soon as possible.

Heat Stroke

This typically happens when an animal is left alone on a warm day without adequate ventilation. Look for panting, vomiting, frothing at the mouth or, in severe cases, loss of consciousness.

Wipe away any froth and place the animal in lukewarm water, effectively lowering its body temperature. Drive the pet to the veterinarian as soon as possible where it will be treated with more cool water and medications.

Poisoning

Symptoms of poisoning include muscular twitching, bleeding, vomiting, collapse or convulsions. Do not hesitate to call your veterinarian if you suspect that your pet is behaving erratically. If you are sure a poisoning has occurred, bring a sample of the toxic substance to the veterinarian with you. If the pet has recently consumed the poison, induce vomiting by feeding the animal a mixture of mustard and salt in water or by pushing a small piece of sodium carbonate down its throat.

The ASPCA also has a 24/7/365 Animal Poison Control Center at 1-888-426-4435. They have experts standing by. A $65 charge may apply.

Drowning

It is a common misconception that all dogs swim well. This is not the case. If your pet appears to have drowned, act quickly. Empty the animal's lungs of fluid as soon as you can. Position the pet's head so it is lower than the rest of its body. Open the mouth and press down on the ribs. Repeat several times at 5-second intervals.

Choking

Small items such as stick fragments, rubber balls and bones can lodge in a dog's throat. If your pet appears to be choking, take swift action.

Open the animal's mouth and try to view the object. Pump the chest just as you would if it was drowning. This may displace the foreign object. If you are able to free the object enough to allow the animal to partially breath, take the pet to the veterinarian as soon as you can, where the object will be extracted under anesthetic.

We all hope we never have to apply basic first aid especially to our furry companions. But it's better to know first aid and not need it than to need it and not know it.

UNSOLICITED TESTIMONIALS
From Our Doggedly Loyal Customers:


My only regret is ...

"I am the kind of person who always speaks up when I think I'm not getting my money's worth for anything. I am also not hesitant to give praise where praise is due.

With that said I bought some of your DentaSure teeth spray for my cat. I received it at the beginning of this week. After 3 DAYS of using this product her teeth have already gone from a scary looking brown and very unhealthy to a light shade of yellow.

I am absolutely blown away by how fast this product has helped her teeth improve and the fact that it's all natural is huge to me (the vet has been pushing me to pay $720 for a cleaning including anesthesia!!).

My only regret is not finding you guys sooner!! Keep up the great work!!!!" ~ Fred Brennan, Waymouth, MA

I am amazed!

"We have 3 dogs. One is almost 10, the second is 2 but is fighting Valley Fever right now and the third is 2 also.

We put the VF dog on antibiotics as soon as she began coughing. The old man never really started but I seem to remember he has had Kennel Cough before so he may now have some immunity.

The third dog started to cough on Thursday and by Saturday it was just awful to listen to. She was trying to hack up a lung and leaving foamy puddles of spit ALL OVER our house.

Thank goodness your Primalix KC arrived so fast. It came in the mail on Saturday afternoon. I immediately dosed all 3 dogs.

Overnight the cough was drastically reduced. I am amazed! I am continuing to treat all 3 dogs for another week.

Thanks for an incredible product. Please do not hesitate to use this review on your website." ~ Lyn Chambers, Phoenix, AZ


Natural Wonder Pets My Rewards


Don't want traditional toxic treatments ...

"Dear TripleSure,

We are pleased with the cedar and peppermint flea spray - it seems to perform as promised & that's a big deal here in Florida which is flea central.

Finally, a practical alternative to the nasty spot style flea pesticides. I will recommend this to my friends who (like us) don't want to use the traditional toxic treatments.

My dog also smells woodsey, a lovely side benefit. We sprayed the house and the combo is working. THANKS!" ~ Michelle G., Ft. Myers, FL

For the first time in 2 years, no coughing!

"I have two dogs that have kennel cough. I bought the Primalix combo for the immune system and the kennel cough. The medicine arrived today and for the first time in two years, no coughing!"
~ Kerry Jacques, Temecula, CA


I would also like all pet lovers to know ...

"I just want to thank you for your wonderful products and caring nature.

We made the decision to put Oreo to sleep on Tuesday. She was much worse Tuesday morning and it was time to let go. It was very hard as my husband and I wanted so bad for her to go on her own, but it was the right decision.

I know that your products helped give her a little more quality time with us than she would have had without them. I would also like all pet lovers to know the importance of spaying and neutering as early as possible - preferably before the first heat cycle - to decrease the chance of getting mammary gland cancer. Studies show mammary tumors in cats are 80% likely to be cancerous.

If I would have known about this risk, I would have started Oreo on the Primalix C-Care for cancer as a preventative measure long ago. I am going to continue giving it to my other 2 cats at least once or twice a week to hopefully prevent them from getting cancer.

Again, thank you so much for your kindness and compassion."

On a scale from 1 to 10, TripleSure gets a 12

“I just received my order of your flea and tick spray. Ok, at first I was skeptical, but now my wife and I are impressed. We see fleas or ticks on our German Shepard “Bumpers” or our Cocker Spaniel “Bella,” they get sprayed and – “Voila!” – dead fleas or ticks.

The buy one get one free was a good deal. A little pricey, but if you want the best this does what it claims and is worth the money.

I want to thank you for making a product that actually works. On a scale from 1 to 10, TripleSure gets a 12.”

~ George and Brenda Campbell, Defuniak Springs, FL


I plan to encourage my friends to try it

"The DentaSure from my order of a week ago is already working on my 2 maltese's teeth and they both like it, making the job of cleaning their teeth much easier for me and is much more effective than trying to brush.

Wish I heard about it (on tv) long ago! I plan to encourage my friends with dogs or cats to try it.

Thank you for your immediate response to my inquiry. You are very efficient!

~ Joyce Snelling, Sun Lakes, AZ

Nice to have found a product that works

"Just wanted to let you know that my 3 year old Pomerian no longer has any dark tear stains after using your Tidy Tears formula. What a relief.

As a retired dog groomer I knew most products were not successful and I wished I had answers for my clients who lived with these tear stains. I did not want my dog to have to live with it also.

Tidy Tears has all natural ingredients which I look for for my pets. Nice to have found a product that works after all these years in time for my Pom."

~ Marie Cherry, Altoona, FL

Your products and customer service are first rate

"Your TripleSure product and customer service are first rate. I have been using it on my Wire Haired Pointing Griffon for the past 10 months. Living in Minnesota we are in prime tick country. My dog has been in the thick of them on extended canoe trips, hunting in tall grass and daily trips along the Minnesota river trails.

TripleSure has prevented ticks & fleas. Granted, after water activity, it must be re-applied. However, this is a small price to pay considering not having the questionable chemical cocktail running through her from the standard systemic solutions such as Frontline. I have found that performance is enhanced if I take a minute to work in the spray by hand & finish it off with a light brush. Griffons have a double coat. My guess is that other breeds won’t need this."

~ K.C. Carpenter, Minnesota


I will always shop with you

"Thank you so much for offering these alternative solutions for really dangerous drugs vets give dogs and cats. I will always shop with you, and tell others."

~ Robin Kincaid, Port Orchard, WA


I shall spread the word as much as I can

"I am very happy with the way my 9 year old lab has responded to your arthritis remedy. We were considering much more invasive methods, and now I am so happy we found your herbal remedies.

We are all the way from Istanbul, Turkey, and find ways to carry the remedies with us or with people coming from the US to Turkey. I really do think you are doing a great job for dogs and cats. As an animal lover I shall spread the word as much as I can."

~ Can Malta, Istanbul, Turkey


This product is amazing for dogs with Cushing's

"I wanted everyone to know that this product is amazing for dogs with Cushing's. My dog looked terrible -- pot belly, bones showing, dry coat, back legs with no strength. We have used this for 3 weeks and it has made a tremendous difference... Getting ready to order 3 months supply. Wonderful product."

~ Tammy Perry from Virginia


Primalix Blood-Sugar Balance ... it's a life saver!

"About 3 years ago my cat Timmy was diagnosed with diabetes. The vet put him on insulin injections which were a disaster and his health deteriorated greatly and he exuded a horrible odor.

I had my doubts about him being treated as a Type 1 diabetic as in the human population over 90% of people have Type 2, non-insulin dependant, diabetes.

So as my cat Timmy was practically dying in front of me I ordered your Primalix for cat blood sugar control. Within a short time of being on Primalix he recovered and also recovered from his diabetic neuropathy so he was able to jump again.

He has been on Primalix now for almost 3 years and the results have been wonderful. Also our vet is amazed at his progress.

I would, without hesitation, recommend any pet owner whose pet has blood sugar control problems to go onto Primalix----its a life saver!

With great appreciation,

Yours sincerely,"

~ Nigel Hyatt PEng (Ont), CEng, MIChemE (Professional Chemical Engineer) Ontario, Canada


TripleSure is a Godsend!

"I bought this product about 5 days ago, It is Amazing! I have both dogs and cats and everything I used was NOT working until Now! I see no fleas and nobody is scratching themselves to death! TripleSure is a Godsend. If you have a problem with fleas do not hesitate to buy this product. I am now a customer for life! Thank you Natural Wonder!"

~ Susan Fussell, Jupiter, FL


Thank you for what you are doing for animals and the world!

"I have been using your TripleSure flea and tick spray and do very much love it. All you stated is TRUE, I can not thank you enough for making my life and my pets life more enjoyable. THANK YOU for what you are doing for animals and the world!!!"

~ Terree W., Atlanta, GA


"C-Care: CURE FOR TUMORS"

"Just a note to let you know that Taylor's breast cancer is completely gone. This was on only one bottle of C-Care. She had tumors the size of pecans in both front teats. 4 years ago when she was 9 years old, she had a tumor the size of a Nerf football on her side. The vet said nothing could be done. It took 4 bottles of C-Care, but cancer completely cured. This is such a marvelous product, I tell everyone about it as cancer seems to becoming so common in our doggies.

Thank you so much for your research & efforts to help our precious babies. Seeing Taylor run and play, and play with toys at 13 years, is more than I could have ever hoped for! Please use this note to let others know that this product really really works. Thanks again so very very much!"
