Avian First Aid Kit



Medical emergencies that involve animals should have first aid administered immediately. These situations are considered a health crisis and many can become life threatening very quickly. Appropriate first aid measures can keep your animal alive until you are able to get to a veterinary hospital, can prevent a traumatic injury from getting worse and alleviate pain for your pet. Any pet owner, animal lover and animal business professional needs to have the essential first aid supplies handy if and when an emergency occurs with an animal.

Remember, first aid is intended to stabilize a sick or injured pet so that, if needed, it can be tended to by a medical professional. When a bird is sick and/or injured administer first aid to attempt to stabilize it, and simultaneously plan transportation to the vet, find a transport container, and get on the road.  One of the biggest mistakes people make during a time of crisis is waiting too long. “Let’s just watch and see how it does,” could be the last words that pet hears.
