Kittens are often curious and love exploring new things. It can be easy for a kitten to get themselves into trouble!! We recommend that you are familiar with potential hazards and emergency situations before they arise so that you are prepared and able to prevent and/or react to your kitten appropriately. Be mindful of things that your kitten can find such as over-the-counter drugs/medication, toxic common household plants/flowers (especially lillies!) and any loose strings (like dental floss) that they may ingest. Visit the Animal Poison Control for more information (http://www.aspca.org/pet-care/animal-poison-control). It is best to keep anything that you do not want your kitten getting into in a place where they cannot have access to or out of the house/yard entirely.

First Aid Kit
We have created our own first aid kits for dogs and cats that we have available for purchase at the Martensville Veterinary Hospital.
Each component is of high quality and the liquids are in durable refillable containers. Most components are multi-use and in sufficient quantity to address multiple injuries, unlike many commercial pet first aid kits. Our kits and totes also have a booklet, written by Martensville Veterinary Hospital’s very own veterinarian Katina Stewart, that goes through the basic use (and misuse) of each item, as well as short instructions on how to handle the most common pet first aid emergencies. Our pet first aid kits are intended to help you get your pet to your veterinarian with the best chance of making a full and speedy recovery.
