A cat tourniquet is an invaluable part of your first aid kit, but you must use it correctly to avoid harming your pet. This video shows the proper procedure for using a cat tourniquet, from application to removal.
A cat tourniquet is a useful tool which should be part of every first aid kit.
A cat tourniquet is a useful tool which should be part of every first aid kit. It’s not a substitute for professional first aid or veterinary care, but it can be used as an adjunct to help stop bleeding in cases where you don’t want to apply direct pressure on a wound or sprain. A cat tourniquet would also be useful if you were in an emergency situation where you needed both hands free.
To learn how to use this device, watch the video below:
Cat tourniquets are used in the event of a bite or scratch which causes bleeding.
A cat’s susceptibility to infection from bites and scratches is due to the fact that their body temperature is very low, their blood vessels are very small, and they do not have much in the way of immune system. This means that if a cat gets even a minor cut or scratch on its paw where bacteria can enter, it could get very sick or even die as a result. In addition to being bitten or scratched by another animal, cats are also susceptible to injuries from broken glass or sharp edges of furniture.
To help prevent this situation from becoming fatal, it’s best for any cat owner to have a tourniquet nearby in case there’s an emergency need for one at home!
To use it, you must remove the protective covering over the tourniquet and apply it directly above the injury.
To use it, you must remove the protective covering over the tourniquet and apply it directly above the injury. The correct placement of the tourniquet is very important to ensure that it is not too tight or too loose on your cat’s leg. The idea is that if you can slide two fingers under the bandage without any resistance, then it’s not tight enough. If you cannot move your fingers at all, then there is a chance that your cat could lose circulation in its leg and not be able to walk properly ever again.
To apply a cat tourniquet:
- Remove protective covering from cat tourniquet
- Apply directly above wound site
If your cat’s arm or leg has been injured, apply the cat tourniquet right above the elbow or knee, respectively.
If your cat’s arm or leg has been injured, apply the cat tourniquet right above the elbow or knee, respectively. Do not apply it directly over the wound—doing so will cause more damage to your pet. The best place for a tourniquet is about two inches away from any injuries on his extremities.
It is important that you do not apply a tourniquet directly around his tail, neck, chest or back—these areas are very sensitive and can be easily damaged by constriction of blood flow through them.
Start with a short duration, as cats’ circulatory systems are more delicate than ours.
When starting the tourniquet, begin with a short duration. Cats’ circulatory systems are more delicate than ours, so it’s important to proceed slowly until you get the hang of it. If you start with a longer duration, the cat may go into shock from the pressure on its leg and not be able to move around freely after being released from your tourniquet.
Do not leave the cat tourniquet on for longer than 20 minutes.
It’s important to remember that cats’ circulatory systems are more delicate than ours, so you should not leave the cat tourniquet on for longer than 20 minutes. If the bleeding does not stop after 20 minutes of use, get your cat to a vet. The tourniquet can be safely used on cats—but only if you follow these instructions carefully and are certain that it is appropriate for your feline friend’s injury.
