August 7, 2012 By Irresistible Pets 8 Comments Having a Pet First Aid Kit is something that ALL pet owners need to have.
I would also recommend purchasing a First-Aid Book for Pets that you can keep inside of your kit. Sterile Saline Eye Solution – To flush out foreign objects in your pet’s eye or to help clean around the eye area.
This is pretty much what we have in Parris and Blue’s first aid kit, but I also have something else in ours. Grouchy Puppy’s post on Pet First Aid Awareness Month here offers a checklist and advice on preparing for an emergency from the American Veterinary Medical Association. It’s a good idea to have a pet emergency financial plan in place so when your emotions are running high, you can still make good decisions for you and your pet. The first thing I need to work on in an emergency, is panicking (though I’m not as bad as The Other Half).


This is the perfect month to make sure you have all your ducks in a row in case of an emergency, pets included!
This is something you can neatly store in your closet or take in the car when your pet travels with you.
We hope for the best, but sometimes accidents happen and being prepared can make all the difference in saving your pets life! There are lots of Pet First Aid Kits on the market that you can purchase already assembled. There are specific items that you may need depending on your pet’s breed and medical history. First up, directions for a DIY Pet First Aid Kit from DoveLewis, an nonprofit emergency animal hospital in Portland, Oregon. Businesses and community organizations in your area may also offer classes so try asking for recommendations at the vet’s office, the pet supply store, doggie daycare or your local dog park.
Be sure to stop by our DIY Pet Project gallery for more do it yourself ideas for pet parents!


I have the local emergency veterinarian hospitals loaded into my phone’s contact list along with Animal Poison Control. I find that way I can put exactly what I want and need inside of the kit….and save some money! You can also visit Aimee at her DIY pet blog, Irresistible Pets and the Hampton Roads Dog Blog.
