Taking your dog camping is a great adventure for both of you, but don’t forget to be prepared! Just like you would take a first aid kit for yourself and your kids, you should have a similar first aid kit for your dog.
Items to include in a pet first aid kit:
There are many commercially available first aid kits for dogs – you can take a look at a local pet store, or you can make your own.
You should include:
If you plan to go hiking, you can make this first aid kit portable by putting it in a knapsack for your dog to carry. Make sure you get your dog accustomed to wearing their own pack before a long hike. You can also add water, pet-safe bug spray, and a snack if needed for a long hike.
Be sure to stay safe and have fun!
