    Default April is Pet First Aid Awareness Month

    How to Put Together a Pet First Aid Kit


    by VETDEPOT on JANUARY 8, 2014




    Just like people, pets are at risk for illness and injury. Although first aid is not a replacement for emergency veterinary care, itís important to have some supplies on hand to care for your pet while seeking veterinary advice. Remember that an animal in pain is more likely to bite, so itís important to muzzle your pet if possible before attempting to administer care or transport your pet.


    Being prepared for a pet emergency is important. Below is a list of items that should be in your petís first aid kit:


    Gauze pads and tape
    Antiseptic solution
    Cotton balls
    Hydrogen peroxide
    Ice pack
    Rubber gloves
    Thermometer
    Saline solution
    OTC antibiotic ointment
    Tweezers
    Scissors
    Pet carrier
    Blanket
    Flashlight
    Towels
    Muzzle


    Pet owners should also keep a list of phone numbers with their emergency supplies including their petís regular veterinary office, a pet poison hotline, and the closest 24 hour emergency veterinary clinic.
