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
- Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) - organic unpasteurized, unfiltered for disinfecting skin after removing ticks, as a cleansing rinse or soak diluted with water
- Don’t use ACV on broken skin or lesions.
- Aloe vera gel or a calendula salve - excellent for soothing irritated and inflamed skin
- Colloidal Silver for treating infections of all types including ear infections , eye infections and diarrhea.
- Witch Hazel - a natural astringent and antiseptic for treating bug bites
- Raw unpasteurized honey to treat wounds (not for puppies under 1 year of age)
- 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
