Do not lose time trying to do a very precise diagnosis. Value the situation quickly, Is the cat in danger? Are you in danger trying to help him?- Catch him, hold him well and keep him away of any other potential danger. Value the conditions of the animal. Verify if his life is in danger. When needed, provide him with immediate emergency first aids. If there is someone whom to turned to, ask him to telephone the veterinarian and help you transport the feline. An emergency is not the best moment to ask the veterinarian to pay a home visit to the cat. The best thing, providing that it's possible, is to telephone and to carry the animal to the closest veterinary clinic.

What to Do First: First Aids Basics: Before an emergency, make a quick physical recognition of the cat. It is important to be able to take the suitable decisions and apply the correct treatment. In a moment in which the animal is healthy and in form, practice with him this method of exploration:

  • Verify the speed and the pace of his breathing
  • Verify its cardiac pace by taking its pulse
  • Look for any shock symptom

Do not try to carry out the whole recognition in just one session. Remember to reward his obedience with a delicacy, a caress or a few words of praise. Give him a reward after each of the previously described steps. Once a brief, but complete emergency recognition, is done you can probably arrive to the conclusion that you have to administer first aids to the feline.

The first aids basics are:

  • Artificial respiration
  • Cardiac massage (if It's carried out along with the previous one, the procedure is called cardiopulmonary revival or, CPR)
  • Cleaning of injuries
  • Bandaging, bindings, turnstiles and Elizabethan necklaces
  • Lifting and moving of the sick or injured cat

Before a real urgency, remember that your objectives are to save the life of the feline, to avoid new damages, pains or inconveniences, and to try the re-establishment of his health.
