Image Pet Emergency First Aid and Disaster Kits
By Gryhoundz on April 17, 2010

It pays to have a First Aid or Disaster Preparedness Kit ready for your dogs. You just grab it and take it along when you travel, or when a real emergency hits you. I bought some nice insulated lunch bags when back-to-school season ended for about a dollar or two as a container for the items below and filled it with items in the lists below. I put a luggage tag on the kit so that if I had it out for an emergency and it was left behind, it could be returned to me. I also chose a bag that I could use permanent marker and put the hospital cross on the sides. Maintenance tip: Don't forget to print a copy of the list for replentishing the kit, and don't forget to keep the copy of your vet record up to date!
