Having these items in your pet first aid kit should cover you for most situations. Remember if you have a medical situation you should ALWAYS contact your vet for advice. They will tell you how to proceed and you will have the items to do the job. If you don't know how to do something don't just guess, get advice as you could end up doing more harm than good.


There are loads of pet first aid courses available both online and in person and we recommend that everyone should learn pet CPR at least once.
