Depending on the pet you have, you will have a different items in your first aid kit. There is no easy way to put this in one post, so I decided to break this up into a few categories and post them that way. Everyone who shares a home with a pet should have a basic pet first-aid kit on hand. Keep your pet’s first-aid kit in your home and take it with you if you are traveling with your pet.

What you will need:

  • Box large enough for all supplies
  • 3″ x 5″ card with Primary Care Vet and Emergency Vet contact information.
  • Towel (can be used when handling frightened, bleeding, or injured animals)
  • Peroxide/Alcohol/Iodine – Used to treat your own wounds
  • Bag Balm – Can be used on your ratties minor injuries or for dry hairless rats. Use thinly.
  • Tylan Powder – used for chronic diarrhea. 1/8 tsp. to 8 oz water for 3 days. (Do not use in rabbits.)
  • Quik-Stop
  • 8-in-1 Small Animal Flea and Tick Spray (Can be used on rabbits)
  • Small Animal Shampoo
  • Q-tips
  • Cotton balls
  • Scissors
  • Fingernail clippers
