Pet First Aid Kit: Small Dogs & Cats
What would you do if your dog or cat was seriously injured? What if they were bleeding? Would you know what to do?
Do you have the appropriate supplies at home to deal with it?
What about if you were away camping and didn’t have access to a veterinarian near by?
Accidents happen unexpectedly, but you can be prepared to provide care for your injured dog by having a pet first aid kit ready. Provision of first aid can be beneficial in a huge variety of situations, from minor scrapes and wounds through to heat stroke or road traffic accidents. There’s no worse feeling in the world than the one of total helplessness when something happens to your best friend and you don’t know how to help them.
Our Creature Clinic Pet First Aid Kits are designed by a veterinarian and contain the key items essential for canine and feline emergencies. The included pet first aid manual provides simple, step-by-step instructions for how (and when) to perform pet cardiopulmonary cerebral resuscitation (CPCR) and for owner/caregiver management of common pet emergencies. It discusses safe and comfortable transport of injured pets and provides a space to include your pets’ details including current medications and medical conditions, as well as an area to record your regular vet and closest emergency vet’s phone numbers.
We know that if our furkids are involved in an accident or other emergency, we want to be able to do everything we possibly can to lessen their suffering and pain in that window between when the emergency occurs and when we’re able to get to a vet clinic for professional help.
Every pet owner should have a pet first aid kit – it’s peace of mind.
