Do you know what to do if your cat breaks his leg? How do you respond if your cat goes into shock, or is suddenly choking? What can you do to keep your cat safe?

Written by a veterinarian for the layman, First Aid for Cats will help you handle an emergency with the best advice for your cat's health and safety. This book contains detailed information on everything from how to assemble a first aid kit to how to give your cat CPR. First Aid for Cats includes a cross-referenced index in the back of the book for quick access to the problem at hand. Informative illustrations and photographs simplify the application of successful first aid.
