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.)
- 8-in-1 Small Animal Flea and Tick Spray (Can be used on rabbits)
- Small Animal Shampoo
- Cotton balls
- Fingernail clippers
- Eye dropper
- Syringe (no needle)
- Nutri-Cal (used for animals that are thin, not gaining weight, or need to gain weight.)
