What do I need in my pet’s first aid kit?

Being prepared for an unfortunate accident can save your pet's life! We'll take you through how to put together your pet's first aid kit.

Be prepared for an emergency before it happens. Set up for success!

A pet first aid kit is similar to a standard one but with extra valuable items. Regularly update your pet's first aid kit (check product validity and replenish stock) and emergency contact information. Check with your veterinarian if there is some medication you can include, especially for chronic diseases.

You should have medication, medical supplies, and equipment to assemble your pet's first aid kit. Restraint items may also be helpful.

You can also include a photo of your pet, their vital signs form, and an emergency contact form in your kit.

That’s it!
