Dog First Aid Kit

The infographics below show some good items to have on hand for your pet in case of emergencies. A DIY kit insures that you will have everything you might need. I have also posted some very good ready-made kits on the market, as well. They come in very basic packs starting around $20 on up to fully stocked packs costing as much as $90. Available online at many sites, your local pet supply stores, and even your local Humane Society. You could even add the extra items listed below if they are not included in the prepackaged kits.

Pet Safety in the Car

I have been away from blogging for the past few days. I really missed being here on WordPress. Glad I am back.

Today I am featuring more about the safety of our pets. How do we keep them safe in the car?

Dogs look so adorable with their ears flapping out the car window. We feel a camaraderie with our pet as they ride with us, even sitting on our laps while we drive. This can be dangerous, not only for ourselves, but for our dog, as well. Some dogs climb all over the vehicle and us, it is a distraction from safe, defensive driving. If we were to get in an accident, our pet could be injured or killed as they fly around the vehicle. I have always been adamant about buckling up, the rule in my vehicle is to wear your seatbelt. The same should be true for our four legged family members.

Here is Anu in her booster seat. She was nervous the first couple of times. Then she started to realize it is fun when we take her out, so she does not really mind now.

Animal Planet has a good list of 5 options to keep our dogs safe when traveling in the car:

Basic Emergency First Aid for Pets

April is National Pet First Aid Awareness Month. We all hope for the healthiest and safest of situations for our pets. Unfortunately, there may be a time when we might have to administer first aid for our pets. This is a really handy chart if we are faced with an emergency. The chart is to guide us in life saving techniques until we can get professional assistance; it is not intended as a replacement for professional care. Your local Red Cross chapter may offer classes for CPR & First Aid for pets, as well.
