National Pet First Aid Awareness Month - Are you Prepared?

April is National Pet First Aid Awareness Month.
If you are a pet lover/owner, then chances are, there has been at least one time where your pet has been injured - whether minor or not - and you have needed to put something on a wound, or wrap up a leg, or whatever the case may be. My question is... Did you have your pet first aid kit at the ready? Were you prepared?

National Pet First Aid Awareness Month - Are you Prepared?

Here are 10 things the huskies think YOU should have in your pet first aid kit:

  1. Phone numbers - vet, emerg vet, poison control, etc...
  2. Gauze pads
  3. Antiseptic wipes
  4. Blanket 
  5. Ice pack
  6. Tweezers
  7. Pet carrier
  8. Hydrogen peroxide 
  9. Scissors 
  10. Flashlight
I could go on and on with a long list of things we should all have in order to be prepared for an injury to one of our pets. But really, common sense will tell you what you should have for your 4 legged friend. Also, be sure to speak with your vet, and if there are any particular items you should be carrying - if your pet has specific allergies etc... then you will most likely want to add some extra things to your list.

We would love to hear from you!
Tell us if you have a pet first aid kit, and what you would add to this list!


  1. Mom has the first aid closet with all the essentials on one shelf.

  2. Our mom needs to get an emergency kit together for us. It would include catnip. ;)

  3. This is a really good list for an emergency or first aid kit! We always travel with our emergency kit for the dogs. We travel a lot with them and our Husky has gotten injured several times. We keep it well stocked both for home & travel.

    Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them

  4. I don’t get much time to spend with my pets but my parents are fully aware about heart diseases in pet dogs, so they always choose low sodium dog food for our dog.

  5. Well Written and Structured Blog. Totally a fan of your writing, I found this blog unique and i have been going through the posts in your blog. Happy Independence Day Quotes On Army in Malayalam 2018
