Best First Aid Kit for Any Pet Emergency

Dr. Travis McDermott


First and foremost, I must disclose that I am the creator/inventor of the Home Vet Bag discussed in this article.  Some would say that my bias towards my own product would not make me the best person to review the Home Vet Bag, but I would argue that based on my extensive research in this market, there is is no one better to tell you why the Home Vet Bag is the best pet first aid kit available for any pet emergency.

The Home Vet Bag

The genesis of the Home Vet Bag occurred about a year ago when I was asked by a pet owner what I recommended for home care for his pets.  I began to research pet first aid kits that were available on the market and found a majority of them to be unimpressive.  The bulk of them were human first aid kits that someone put a paw on the side of and marketed for pets (one even had an eye patch in it).  The one or two kits that I did find that had anything close to what I would recommend were well over $100.  I decided at that point that I was going to design and produce the best pet first aid kit I could and work to make it available to as many pet owners as possible.
