No one wants their pets hurt on vacation, but when you’re away from home it’s good to be prepared and pack a first aid kit! Be sure to include these items on the list:
1. Styptic Powder – This convenient item is a staple in pet first aid kits! It can help stop bleeding and ease pain for minor injuries for dogs, cats, birds, and other animals.
2. Medicines – Certain medicines make a difference in emergency situations, such as Benadryl for allergic reactions. Learn what’s important to administer for common ailments in your pet’s species. Vitamin C for guinea pigs, wet tail drops for hamsters, and sugar tablets if your pet is diabetic are some examples you can include.
