We all love our pups and hate to think of any harm from health, weather or even a natural disaster.  Be prepared and have a kit ready for your home and car.  Include a copy of all vet records with phone #'s,  photos, emergency contact information, medication details, food bowls, WATER, leash as well as any specific information regarding your pet. You can also become CPR certified, as all Dawg Tired Staff have completed, for even more information.  Follow these tips from The American Red Cross for a first aid kit in a waterproof container and natural disaster kit for your beloved pet:

Latex (or hypoallergenic material) gloves, Gauze sponges and roll (a variety of sizes)Elastic cling bandage, Material to make a splint, Adhesive tape, sterile pads, Small scissors,Tweezers,Grooming clippers,Towel, Muzzle, Compact emergency “blanket” (available in the camping department of many stores), Water-based sterile lubricant, Peroxide (3%),Rubbing alcohol; Topical antibiotic ointment,Antiseptic towelettes,Insect sting stop pads,cold pack, Epsom salts,Eye dropper, Sterile eye lubricant, Sterile saline wash,Tongue depressors, Diphenhydramine, if approved by your veterinarian (Benadryl), Glucose paste or syrup, Styptic powder or pencil, Plastic card to scrape stingers, Penlight, Needle-nose pliers.

January is Walk Your Dog Month. And we're celebrating all month long with 10% off of all dog walking packages purchased in January!
