Pet First Aid

April is National Pet First Aid Awareness Month so I’ve put together some Tips, Advice and Deals on items every pet parent should have on hand in case of emergency.

First, save money by taking an inventory of what you already have at home and gather items together for quick and easy access when needed.  Here is a very helpful List of 10 Essential Pet First Aid Kit Items from

If you’d like to pick up an affordable ready-made Pet First Aid Kit, I spotted several good ones at Amazon including this AKC 20-Piece Pet First Aid Kit for $14.95 and Free Shipping eligible. You can also browse Amazon for more Pet First Aid Kits here.

 Next, learn the basics of Pet First Aid. Print and familiarize yourself with this How to Perform Pet CPR Infographic. You can also get more information and find out about Pet First Aid Classes at Red Cross.

It’s a good idea to keep some reference materials on hand, and Amazon had deals on Pet First Aid Books and Downloads. Two that look like great deals to me are:

Pet First Aid Companion Book for Dogs and Cats

The First Aid Companion for Dogs & Cats (Prevention Pets) This book is only $14.93 (reg. $21.95) at Amazon and eligible for FREE Shipping.  It covers Basic first-aid techniques, such as cleaning a wound, making a splint, and performing CPR– step-by-step. Also tells you which over-the-counter human medications can help, or harm your dog or cat and what to keep in your pet’s medicine chest.

Quickly pinpoint what’s wrong with your pet, using the First-Aid Symptom Finder and tells you when to call the vet.
