September is National Disaster Preparedness Month, as well as Responsible Pet Ownership Month. It's a great time to ask yourself if you’re ready to tackle anything. Today, Harley and I are going to make our own pet first aid kit.

I’m sure you’ve all been watching the news regarding flash floods the US has been facing recently, so it’s never a bad idea to be prepared. I reached out to Dr. Justine Lee about her blog Pet First Aid: Building Your Own Pet First Aid Kit and thought it would be a great idea to show you first hand what you can include. Dr. Ruth MacPete also has a fantastic video on How to Make a Pet Disaster Kit.

For more information on pet first aid kits, check out the list provided by the American Red Cross which you can find here and we hope you enjoy the video below!
