DIY First Aid Kit for Dogs

April is National Pet First Aid Month.

Of course, we don’t want anything bad to ever happen to our fur babies, but accidents do happen. And it’s always best to be prepared, just in case.

This is why having a first aid kit for your dog is so important. I mean, you have first aid stuff for yourself, right? So why wouldn’t you have any for your dog?

And what better way to get a first aid kit than to put it together yourself?

Today I want to show you what all you should include in your first aid kit. 

I have linked each of the items to it’s listing on Amazon so you can easily stock up on your supplies from the comfort of your home! (Don't forget to log in to your Amazon Smile account so that Amazon will donate to your charity of choice!)

You don't want to just use a first aid kit that was made for humans because some of that stuff is not safe for dogs.
