In many homes, pets are as much a part of the family as any human, and learning to take care of their cuts, bumps, and tummy-aches is a necessary skill set to ensure they live happy and comfortable lives. With some basic first aid training and the right kit of essentials, you’ll easily be able to handle non-emergency medical care whenever it’s necessary.
Used by professional groomers to rapidly stop bleeding from the accidental cuts that sometimes happen while trimming nails or fur, styptic powder quickly stops bad bleeds that aren’t bad wounds. While it isn’t a substitute when stitches are necessary for severe cuts, it can come in handy for anyone who wants to try grooming at home.

Useful for preventing wound licking, these breathable, waterproof bandages don’t pinch or stick to fur. They’re also useful as a muscle wrap for older pups or after strenuous exercise. Comes in a multi pack, so you can choose a wide wrap for muscles, or a narrow one to cover bumps and bruises while they heal.
