You never know when your pet may need medical attention. Having a first aid kit handy will help hold you over before having us check it out. First aid kits specifically made for pets can be purchased, or you can build your own.

A pet first aid kit will include things like bandages, antibiotic ointment, adhesive tape, hydrogen peroxide, safety scissors and tweezers. Please note, some human medications may be dangerous or deadly to pets. Check with us before including any in your kit. We also like to include some other more generally helpful items like a spare leash, extra food, treats, portable water bowl and pet waste bags.

And most importantly, include a piece of paper with the phone numbers for animal poison control, the closest emergency hospital, and of course our number. Having these important supplies ready at hand will help ensure that you’re prepared for the unexpected.
