I was walking my dog near my house. All of a sudden, I see blood coming out of his foot. He had a minor injury. But I needed to take care of it anyway. Thank God I was right beside my house. But, this incident made me think. I wondered if I can make an aid kit for my dog. I searched and found out first-aid kits for dogs are not that uncommon.
What if your dog gets injured far from your house, and there is no vet’s office nearby? Your dog can also get bitten by a snake or a bee; a first-aid kit can save your dog’s life.
To provide a dog emergency care when he is far away from a vet’s office, the place can be your home or a dog park.
Not many, just a few emergency medicines. Allergy medicines, antiseptic lotion, scissor, insect bite ointment, cotton balls, band-aid are enough for a dog first-aid kit. You also need a good pouch to carry all those medicines. I use Canine Friendly Pocket Pet First Aid Kit , it looks good and at the same time very light.
I talked about many types of multiple types of medicine; please remember your vet needs to suggest the medicines. You cannot just go to the store and pick-up any medicine for your dog.
