First Aid Kit For Dogs and Cats – Natural, Holistic

Whether you are just enjoying time at home or traveling – when your dog or cat needs first aid, a well prepared all natural first aid kit can reduce stress, save you a trip to the veterinarian’s office and ensure fast relief for your pet.
Be prepared for the inconveniences of summer – bug bites, ticks, hot spots, sun burns and common issues that can come-up unexpectedly any time of the year – diarrhea, ear infections, eye infections, etc. You can make your own holistic first aid kit for your dog and cat, you will be glad you did…

Holistic All-Natural First Aid Kit

Perfect for home and travel with your pet – here’s what you will need…
  • Bandages – self adherent pet bandages
  • Clean towel and washing cloth
  • Cotton swabs
  • Insect repellent – natural herbal spray and/or natural herbal spot-on and collar drops
  • Tick removal tool
  • Natural Essentials
  • Sun Screen – for your dog’s nose and for dogs with thin or sparse fur
    • Don’t use conventional human–made-for sunscreen as it contains multiple toxins as do the majority of made-for pet sunscreens, including those sold in veterinarian offices.
    • Coconut oil, sesame seed oil, jojoba oil or wheat germ oil are good natural sunscreens and moisturizers.
      • You can make these natural oils even more effective by adding 5 to 20 drops of therapeutic-grade lavender (or another dog-safe, cat-safe essential oil) for every ounce of coconut, sesame or jojoba oil
  • To heal a sun-burned nose just apply a little vitamin E
