I was going for a whimsical feel on this one, but I'm thinking it came out a bit more wild and crazy. Regardless, I cannot take credit for the full idea of this one. I saw an image similar to this on Pinterest, and thought it looked fun to draw. After all, I love books and all things whimsical, so I decided to give it a shot. Of course, it wouldn't be complete without a kitty snuck in there.

Happy Caturday to all!
Our Tip of the Day:And so continue our tips for National Pet Poison Awareness Month. We've mentioned before the benefits of having a first aid kit for your furbaby. What's more, a first aid kit would do well to take the potential for poisoning into consideration. For example, it could be beneficial to have 3% hydrogen peroxide as part of a pet first aid kit, as this can be used to induce vomiting, most commonly in dogs. For poisons that involve skin contact, dish soap could potentially be used to help remove the offending agent, and so even that could be included in a pet first aid kit.
All of the above being said, though, it is most wise to never try to treat a poisoned cat or dog without first contacting a veterinarian. This is because, depending on the type of toxic substance involved in a poison event, and even sometimes depending on the particular animal's overall health status, certain treatments could do more harm than good. For example, if your furbaby ingested a corrosive agent, inducing vomiting could cause even more damage. For reasons such as these, always contact a veterinarian immediately when poisoning is known or suspected. A veterinarian can inform you if or what first aid you can perform, and you can then use items from your pet first aid kit to offer immediate care as recommended. Of course, getting your furbaby to a veterinarian in an emergency is still crucial! But, first aid treatment can certainly help stall or treat the effects of a toxicity.
