First Aid

Pet First Aid – by Australia’s travelling vet

My pet is vomiting or has diarrhoea

If your pet is bright and happy, mild vomiting or diarrhoea can be managed at home.

In this video, Dr. Tania will teach you how to make and give an electrolyte supplement to your dog with your Vet in a Van – Navigator Pet First Aid Kit. Knowing some basic pet first aid is essential for all pet owners. Giving your dog extra oral fluids and electrolytes can help them recover from mild dehydration caused by problems such as vomiting, diarrhea or heat stress. Further instructions for a special bland diet for vomiting and diarrhea in dogs, and ways to relieve heat stress in dogs, are provided in our Pet First Aid Kit Quick Reference Guide. *

NOTE: If your pet is lethargic, vomiting continues longer than 24 hours, there is blood in the vomit or diarrhoea, or they seem unwell otherwise, seek veterinary advice.
