April is Pet First Aid Awareness Month. Do you have some extra time on your hands? Why not start tackling your “I’ll get around to it someday” list. Preparation plays an essential part in helping to alleviate stress and handle emergencies with confidence. Creating a basic first aid kit may be one of those things if you are a pet parent. Why not give yourself some peace of mind by creating your starter kit today! (Make sure to check your kit regularly for expired items and to replenish used ones.)
Once you have assembled your kit, remember to include your veterinarian’s contact information, pet poison control’s number, and pet first aid book. You can customize your kit to include specific items for your beloved dog, cat, bird, ferret, or reptile.
