For minor injuries and wounds, you need to staunch the bleeding by applying a bandage and keep it in place with tape. Tweezers and scissors make it easy to remove splinters and items stuck in your cat’s paw or fur.


OTC Medications and Prescriptions

When your pet takes daily medication or needs medicine to fight an infection, you want to put it in a central location.


Flat Leash, Muzzle and Towel

If your cat is injured, he might lash out at you. Use a towel or muzzle to protect yourself from sharp teeth.


Hydrogen Peroxide and Cotton Swabs

Use cotton swabs to apply hydrogen peroxide direct to an injury and avoid getting it all over your kitty’s fur.
