  • WHY is it important to have a Dog specific first aid kit on hand at home or while traveling?
    Having a dog specific first aid kit is ESSENTIAL. These days, unless your dog is in a life/death situation, it's not uncommon to have to wait HOURS to get into the Animal ER. Need a same day emergency visit at your regular vet? If it's not life/death, you may not get in the same day. TRAVELING? This makes it even harder to get an appointment, because you're not a client. Being prepared for the unexpected and having a first aid kit for your dog can and will save you worry, angst, further injury, and potentially even death, in cases of toxin ingestion. THE K9 MEDIC KIT, has got your back, and will prepare you--yes, YOU to handle a situation you didn't know was coming. 1. Those of us who have dogs, all know they can get into a multitude of things that are not good for them to eat! Toxin ingestion is one of the top reasons for trips to the ER or your regular vet. KNOWING what to do, and having the tools and instructions to induce vomiting when appropriate is critical to saving precious time and potentially saving their life. 2. No matter at home or away, they can tear toe nails, get lacerations on the paws, legs, ears, tail or torso. Knowing what to do, and having the ability and products readily available to STOP BLEEDING and bandage the area can save you a trip to the ER and potentially waiting HOURS to be seen for a non-life-threatening situation, not to mention hundreds of dollars. 3. Many times, dogs get stung by bees, wasps, spiders, and other insects that can cause allergic reactions, hives, or in worse case scenario, anaphylactic shock, although that is rare. KNOWING what to give, what the proper dose is, and how often will save pain and suffering of your dog, and in mild to moderate cases, save you a trip to the ER or vet, if they can get you in for an appointment. A dog specific first aid kit is the TOP ITEM veterinarians and camping/hiking/hunting experts with dogs recommend to have at home and on the road with you when you have dogs.
