A First Aid Kit, one especially for pets, is something every pet owner should have available at home and when traveling. First Aid should never be a substitute for veterinary care, but is meant to be a means to treat your furry family member until veterinary care can be obtained. First aid kits for pets can be homemade or purchased.

Susan Gilison was in her backyard playing with her dog, Patches, when she began barking and jumping up to put her paws on the fence. Susan tried to calm Patches, but she was too excited.

Sheila, Susan’s sister, was in the front yard at the time and began looking around for the cause of Patches’ excitement. She saw what she thought was a cat curled up on the front porch, but the cat but turned out to be a tiny Chihuahua. Sheila sat down with the dog and a few moments later Susan found them there; Sheila had the Chihuahua on her lap.
