🌿Stitching-🌿Edit

It's complicated, if this doesn't make much sense, feel free to JAG me. I'd love to demonstrate. My old medic OC was raised from a cub in a research center. She was a rare hybrid, so her parents were placed there, followed by their daughter. Much of a story I don't have time to write. Anyway, my habitat was next door to what they called the 'work room' or, the examination room. They preformed 'stitching' (surgery) almost twice a week. So I watched and learned, trying to conjure ideas on how I could perform it if I were to escape. Stitching is a treatment that should only be done if you can't get your herbs to work, for it pains the patient and risks their death.

  1.  Take large amounts of bramble twig mixed with thyme and crush the thyme into the bramble twig syrup.
  2.  Have the cat consume.
  3.  Wait until the cat's breathing slows and you know they're unconscious.
  4.  Take a sharp rock, or your sharpest/Largest claw, and cut a clean line wherever you're performing the stitching.
  5.  Use damp, sanitary moss to clean and move the edges if needed. Don't use your paws or claws while in the cat's insides.
  6.  Do what you need. If it's removing something they ate, try removing the piece causing the symptoms with A dry, sustainable leaf. Claws or fur may cause infection during the healing process. If it's trying to relocate an organ, then use a dry, sustainable, sanitary leaf.
  7.  After your completion, have a cat hold the two ends of the flesh you cut back together. Then lay a flat, warm, sanitary rock onto the area. (If it's the stomach, don't place it there, have your helper hold it gingerly.)
  8.  (Optional, depending on the size of the cutting you made) Use a sharp stick, cleaned in water then sun-dried, attached to a long line of tied leaf-string to try and weave the two sides of flesh back together.
  9.  Apply oakleaf or echinacea to the area that you worked on along with dabbing damp moss on it every few hours.
  10.  Before the cat becomes fully conscious, feed them a small dose of poppy seeds and a decent amount of thyme.
  11.  When they wake give them shock root and possibly chamomile.


Herb careEdit

  • If a herb is wet, put it outside in the sun to dry
  • Gather fresh herbs when your stock gets low
  • Leave enough of the herb when you collect it so it can reproduce and keep growing
  • Check your store often and throw out old herbs that have lost their qualities.

🌿Internal Bleeding🌿Edit

Internal bleeding occurs when damage to an artery or vein allows blood to escape the circulatory 

system and collect inside the body. ~ http://www.medicinenet.com/internal_bleeding/article.htm

Treatment:Edit

  1.  Take large amounts of bramble twig mixed with thyme and crush the thyme into the bramble twig syrup.
  2.  Have the cat consume.
  3. Wait until the cat's breathing slows and you know they're unconscious.
  4. Take a sharp rock, or your sharpest/Largest claw, and cut a clean line wherever you're performing the stitching.
  5. Use damp, sanitary moss to clean and move the edges if needed (Be sure the edges of the flesh are high enough to keep from too much blood loss). Don't use your paws or claws while in the cat's insides.
  6. Use sanitary moss to sponge the edges of the blood around the laceration.
  7. Use sanitary cobwebs, applying small amounts of pressure on the bleeding organ to slow the fluid. Do NOT apply large amounts of pressure, for the organ may rupture.
  8. Do what you feel needed to make the internal bleeding slow, stitching the organ is a NO. If the organ is ruptured it is beyond your control. 
  9. Make sure the bleeding is completely done before you follow the ending procedures found in the 'Stitching' Content, but you need to act quickly, the inside cannot be exposed for too long.
  10. Keep the bleeding to a minimal. Try not to let it out of the open wound you lacerated.
  11. Stitch the wound up with the ending procedures found in the 'Stitching" Content.
  12. Feed one aspen tree seed once they come to. Don't wake them on your own, be sure to check for signs of breathing every now and then.
  13. Make a water-thinned paste of 2 buttonbush down leaves, 1/2 of a shock root, and add the syrup from a sweet-sedge flower.
  14. Don't let the patient out of sight. Keep them asleep, but awake enough to acknowledge their state of life.
  15. Listen for sounds of pain, subtle writhing, complete stillness, sudden urges to voilently stand/run/move, or purple-tinted bleeding.

🌿Large Gashes🌿Edit

Treatment options:Edit

• clean out bacteria/dirt with a cleansing, warm, wet mossball. Then apply a paste of horsetail and goldenrod then wrapped in a sanitized, good amount of cobwebs.

• clean out bacteria/dirt with a cleansing, warm, wet mossball. Then apply a paste of goldenrod and marigold then wrap in a sanitized, good amount of cobwebs.

• clean out bacteria/dirt with a cleansing, warm, wet mossball. Then apply marigold and place sanitized, decent amounts of cobwebs on the wound. Then quickly weave the appropriate amount of goosegrass into the cobwebs bandage.

🌿Minor coughs🌿Edit

Treatment options:Edit

• place wet moss on a sanitized area on a leaf or bare stone. Let them drink accordingly unless you feel it's necessary to drizzle it into their mouth yourself. Use small amounts of ginger mixed with 1 juniper berry for a kit, 3 for an apprentice, and 4 for a warrior, and follow that by mixing water with chamomile petals to create a thick paste. Have them consume this mixture.Edit

• place wet moss on a sanitized area on a leaf or bare stone. Let them drink accordingly unless you feel it's necessary to drizzle it into their mouth yourself. Use water-dampened tansy and chamomile paste. (Mentioned above)

🌿Major Coughs🌿Edit

WhitecoughEdit

SymptomsEdit

  • coughing mucus
  • low fever
  • nose streaming lightly
  • eyes glossy and crusting

Can lead to Greencough, or in extreme cases, Blackcough.

TreatmentsEdit

•Use damp tansy or ginger, use plenty, but careful, amounts of poppy seeds, small amounts of catmint, mint to calm leaking nose fluids, and lavender to cool fevers.

  • You could also use hawkweed or chickweed instead of tansy or ginger. Hawkweed and chickweed are specially for Whitecough.

•Blessed thistle if they start getting somewhat droopy and stop trying to eat or drink.

•Keep water in their veins at all times. Dehydration can lead to worse symptoms.

GreencoughEdit

SymptomsEdit

•nose streaming quickly

•coughing up mucus and maybe even other fluids (not blood)

•chills

•high fever

•runny/crusty eyes

•crusty nose

May lead to Blackcough or death if not treating quickly.

TreatmentEdit

  • give lots of water. Keep the cats hydrated.
  • use larger amounts of catmint than ginger or tansy. Try to keep them eating. Even if it's just a few mouthfuls. If mucus gets too bad, have them wail or yowl to keep their lungs clear. They don't need to suffocate on snot. Use feverfew and lavender gingerly. And chamomile and/or blessed thistle if they lose the will to keep trying. This just means they're getting weak. Use warm, wet, sanitary moss balls to remove the crust around the nose and eyes.

BlackcoughEdit

SymptomsEdit

  • coughing large amounts of other fluids or blood.
  • constant running of eyes
  • large amounts crusting around the nose
  • large amounts of crust on the eyes.
  • stop eating and drinking
  • Extremely weak
  • dangerously high fever
  • large amount of shuttering from chills.

There is no cure for Blackcough.

TreatmentEdit

  • Give them decent doses of chamomile, keep their spirits up. Also, dark oak sap may be consumed to weaken the disease. It doesn't treat the illness, but it makes it containable. You may be able to gain control of the illness and possibly use catmint to cure it. If it gets to a point where they're in pure torture and pain, though, ask them for permission then send them to StarClan with a deathberry.


🌿Curing a bee sting🌿Edit

SymptomsEdit

  • a Large Swelling Bump
  • constant Pain

TreatmentEdit

  • Give the patient a decent dose of chamomile then pop the sting, gingerly, with your teeth. Clense the area with damp moss before putting a poultice of blackberry leaves and a cobweb bandage, fastened with catchweed.

💦Drowning escape💦Edit

TreatmentEdit

  • check the cat's temperature, make sure it's not too high or too low. (if it is then the cat is probably almost dead) then quickly look for signs of breathing or heart beat. If there isn't a sign of either then the cat's probably dead, but you still try this. Flip the cat over swiftly, so it's belly is exposed. Have a cat or two hold the wet cat in place. Place your paws onto the cat's chest and push hard. At least 27 times per minute. Pump like this until they cough up water and begin to stir softly. (If this doesn't happen after a total of 3 minutes then the cat wasn't saved fast enough and is dead.) one they stir give them a fair amount of shock root and blessed thistle along with a small small dose of thyme and chamomile.

🔥Burns🔥Edit

Treatment optionsEdit

  • mix a goo of aloe Vera gel and fresh honey. Soak wet moss in the gel. When completely filled, place the moss onto the burn gingerly. Dap at it, until the burn is covered in the goo.
  • use aloe Vera and gel mixed with chamomile and comfrey. You must mix the chamomile petals with water to create a paste before you mix it. You also must grind the comfrey root. This method is difficult because of the steps it takes to complete, but it is quite effective.

🐾Broken Limbs🐾Edit

JawEdit

How to know for sureEdit

  • the bottom jaw will look as if someone took it and pushed it over to the side.
  • there will be a cracked line going down the stretched side of the jaw.
  • the cat will wail/whimper constantly out of pain.
  • the way they eat is concerning. They chew with the few good molars on the stretched side of their face. The rest will dribble from the side.

TreatmentEdit

  • refix the jaw to the best of your ability. You should have one cat hold the bottom of the jaw firmly while you hold both sides. The extended and the crooked. Have the cat holding the bottom slowly place pressure and push up. While that's happening you should quickly push to the side. If you don't think you can do this without making it worse, then don't. Apply a paste of comfrey, brooom, and nettle leaves. Wrap the jaw in thick cobwebs, and add comfrey and feathers to their nest. Reapply fresh pastes every day until the crack on the extended side of the jaw mends. Give them poppy seeds for pain, and make sure they eat. Rest and nutrients go a long way.

Leg/pawEdit

How to know for sureEdit

  • the front leg (if broken) will look twisted, much like a gnarled root. It will be either over extended or under extended (twisted either behind its normal position, or in front of it.)
  • the paws will look twisted like an interesting rock. It would be quite swollen with bumps along the edges of the bone. It will be hard to feel for a crack, so you have to look for signs.
  • the hind legs will be sticking out backwards. They will look like a giant tree branch came down and whacked it backwards. You can sense pain, as the medic, just from the way to scrunch their face when they drag it behind them. It's extremely painful, considering as cats, you use the hind legs to position your weight, hunt, climb, and move.

TreatmentEdit

  • this works for all 3 leg/paw situations.
  • apply a mixture of nettle leaves, especially for the paw, comfrey, and broom. Plaster the paste onto the cracked bone, extending the paste outwards on every side, making a sun-like image. Completely wrap the leg/paw in cobwebs. Then have a cat hold two sticks, one one each side of the limb. ( for a paw, you want to position the paw under the above leg, and place the sticks on the paw, but let hem extend upwards so they touch the above leg.) wrap the leg and the sticks with bindweed, catchweed, or reed stems.

TailEdit

How to know for sureEdit

  • Depending where the tail was broken, there will be a slight dent in the external tail fixture. After the bone is mended, the tail will still look bent.
  • The tail loses much of its nerve feeling after damage is done, meaning they'll break the tail and won't have much feeling in a few minutes.
  • if the sacrum (bottom of the tail bone) is damaged, it could mean certain paralysis and/or death. Considering the sacrum controls the latter nerves, other ligaments, and even a few organs.

TreatmentEdit

  • feel for the dent in the tail, if you find that, you've found where the tail bone was broken. There isn't much of a cure for this, but if you want the bone to mend quickly, then make a poultice of broom and nettle leaves. Then wrap it in or bindweed.

Thoracic vertebrae (Upper backbone)Edit

How to know for sureEdit

  • The entire upper body will look strange like it was put together wrong. The front legs will be out farther up, and the head will began to hang down low naturally. The chest will be up higher than the rest of the underbelly. This causes the cat's to look like they're being picked up by an invisible twoleg.

TreatmentEdit

  • there isn't a cure for the way the broken spine caused the cat to look. But the bone will mend again. Breaking the thoracic vertebrae is quite dangerous though, for if it was broken wrong, or if it's not treated soon enough and it hits the spinal cord, then the cat's paralyzed and will likely die.
  • Have the cat slowly roll to his/her side. Try guiding the two broken ends back together. After you do that, put a poultice of comfrey, broom, and crushed nettle leaves onto the crack through the upper spine. That can't can't move. If that cat moves it risks paralysis.

Lumbar vertebrae (Lower spine)Edit

How to know for sureEdit

  • the cat is paralyzed from the mid-back down.

TreatmentsEdit

  • the cat must be given exercises.
  • Have him/her yowl regularly to clear mucus, since they can't exersize like normal cats.
  • give him/her thyme after the paralysis to soothe the shock, and let them know they're okay.


Queen's customs and birthingEdit

🐱Customs🐱Edit

A cat's pregnancy lasts anywhere from 64-67 days. A dog's lasts 58-68 days. Meaning about two moons. Queens need to eat fatty foods along with healthy foods. Such as the leg of the squirrel and some chamomile and juniper berries. Along with much, much water. Queens should try to rest most of the time savouring nutrients and energy for her kitting, but she also needs to go out on daily walks a few times a day as well. If her contractions begin to get out of control it either means the kits are on their way, or the kits are growing and kicking. Crushed iris petals can and will help with that pain.

🐱Kitting🐱Edit

  • the kitting queen will need her space, now having that said, she should be able to pick who she wants close. The medics don't want it crowded so maybe only the queens mate.
  • until kitting actually happens she may be able to consume a few crushed iris petals to slow the pain.
  • give the queen a large stick covered in raspberry leaf paste and crushed iris petals stuck to the paste. The queen shouldn't eat the mixture, but chew it. It reduces bleeding and helps numb contractions a bit. She should also have wet moss next to her or being trickled into her mouth.
  • after she has delivered one kit have either the medic or the father bite off the membrane sack and groom the kit warm and dry.
  • above) shall happen until the queen is finished kitting.
  • after the kitting the father and the mother should be left alone with their kits until sundown. Or if they chose earlier.
  • then if the queen is strong enough they shall move to the nursery.

Ending note: Edit

I got quite a few of my ideas from other wiki pages such as the Medicine Cat Guide. They deserve partial credit. Most of these were my original ideas though. Also, not all of the treatments to sicknesses are listed. I chose a few of the best. I can add more of you guys really think I need to. If you're confused about anything my OC is Willowbreeze, and my Animal Jam username is pixie908. I appreciate the fact that you guys have taken the time to read this and have done nothing but say positive things and give me suggestions. Thank you guys.
