Pet First Aid Kit
Having a pet first aid kit is always good to have handy. It does not have to be fancy; a human first aid kit will usually work in a pinch. We highly recommend a first aid kit to anyone who takes their dog(s) out a lot to parks, competition events, adoption events or long walks. Having the supplies to dress small wounds or help stabilize a pet for the trip to the vet can save a life.

If you want to build your own items we recommend:

Vet-wrap (stretch wrap)
Non-adherent sterile pads (2 sizes)
Cotton tip applicators
Compact thermal blanket
water-based sterile lubricant
topical antibiotic ointment
glucose syrup or corn syrup
needle nose pliers

Emergency numbers for your pet

Any regular Medications
You do not need all of it but we do recommend most of it. Having your vets phone number and hours is one of the most important items. If you have an emergency clinic nearby add them also.
A plastic tote or other water resistant container works best. We use small duffle bags for kits for our officers. A bag with pockets or dividers also works really well.
