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.

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.
