As a pet parent, you want to be sure that you can help your furry kid the best way you can. You need to make sure to have basic first aid supplies for your pets in your household.
Different species, age groups, and pet lifestyles have different first aid kit needs. For example, a diabetic pet kit should include honey in the event of a low blood sugar episode. Pets who take medications regularly should have a couple of days supply of all current medications (be sure to rotate meds to make sure they don’t expire).
