First Aid Kits

The following are pictures of our indoor and barn first aid kits with a list of tools and their uses.  What our kits contain is what we have found necessary for our needs during animal rescue, pet ownership, boarding, and traveling.  Your kit may not need everything we have or you may need to add things we don’t have in our kits.

*Everything found in our kits can be bought on the internet.*

Some tools listed are not in each picture. Some tools are only in one kit but can be used in both.  Anything that is used in one can be used in the other.  We usually keep the kits together in one place for quick and easy use.
