You know how important a good first aid kit is for you and your family. But it is also good to be prepared for a medical emergency for your pet. Any first aid administered to your pet should be followed by immediate veterinarian care.
You can buy a first aid kit specially designed for pets, or you can put together your own. Here are some things that should be included in any animal first aid kit.
Sterile saline solution
Alcohol prep pads
Large sterile gauze pads and rolls
Nylon leash and muzzle
Milk of magnesia
Insect bite ointment
Instant ice pack
Blunt tip scissors
List of veterinarian, animal hospital, and poison control phone numbers
Proof of rabies vaccination status, copies of medical records, and a current photo of your pet.
