Do you have an emergency kit for your pet?
Over the past weekend my puppy had a reaction to some puppy meds that the vet gave to him. I called the vet and was instructed to give him some Benadryl. Naturally, I did not have any so I had to run out to the drug store to find some.
This got me thinking, what would I put into an emergency kit for pets?
