Cat & Dog Survival Kits
The concept of a pet survival kit is definitely one that brings about a laugh more often than not. For many, the idea of a survival kit for people is a silly one, but a survival kit for a cat or dog is even more obtuse. The reality of the matter is that when people find themselves stranded in the wilderness, or unprepared in the aftermath of a disaster, they are often not alone. Many times they have their dog with them, especially when on a hunting trip or even at home.
Securing a safe return home for yourself is something most people would feel comfortable doing, but being able to provide for the basic needs of a stranded animal is a different story entirely. With a stranded animal comes a whole host of needs you have probably never even thought of. Even if you have fallen victim to a simple blackout at home, the needs of your pet will persist and will need to be taken care of as well. Luckily, we offer a variety of pet survival kits to ensure the safety of your pet even the bleakest of survival scenarios. Having a pet survival kit on hand can make any emergency a bit more comfortable for both you and your furry companion(s) and they are pretty inexpensive. You can simply even acquire some non-perishable dog food rations to provide your pet with meals during an emergency.
Basic Elements of a Pet Survival Kit
The thing about survival kits for animals such as cats and dogs is that they are not too different than survival kits for humans. After all, in an emergency, a dog is just as in need of shelter, food, and water as a human is. Because of this, many pet survival kits are just as useful for the dog or cat they are intended to help as they are for the pet’s owner. They contain all of the essential supplies needed for a pet to survive without all the basics that are available in most homes and will include food, clean water and even basic first aid supplies. Below is a list of the common items that can be found in all of our pet survival kits.
Food and Water Supply
If you find yourself stranded in the woods or in an emergency without food or water for your dog, you will benefit immensely from a pet survival kit. While the presence of food and water is great, it’s not like your dog will be able to open the packets of food and water and simply feed his or herself. With this in mind, pet survival kits are equipped with food and water bowls that make feeding your dog or cat in the wild a bit simpler with a dog survival kit.
If water rations are running low, it only makes sense that you, the human with the capabilities of helping both you and your pet survive the seemingly perilous situation, consume the larger portion of water. You naturally don’t want your dog to be thirsty, but with only a few packets of water remaining you have little choice.
It is this type of scenario when pet survival kits and their water purification tablets come in handy. All you need to do is find a source of relatively clean water, place the tablets in, and allow your dog to enjoy. Water purification tablets are often able to be utilized by both humans and dogs, but be sure to verify that before making use of them.
Protection and First Aid Supplies
In survival scenarios where you and your furry friend find yourselves stuck in the middle of the wilderness, your dog may become spooked and thus more prone to simply darting off. With the leather leash provided, you are able to tie your dog up just about anywhere and prevent him or her from wandering off. The leash can also prove helpful when on the move with your dog.
A doggy first aid kit is also a hallmark item of any pet survival kit. As you may or may not have expected, a dog’s survival first-aid kit features many of the same tools and equipment that a human’s first aid kit does. With things like bandages, sterile wipes and other simple medical supplies, a doggy first-aid kit is yet another aspect of a pet survival kit that can be equally as useful for you. Other supplies in a pet survival kit include a dog toy, poop bags, emergency light stick, and thermal blanket for keeping warm in colder climates.
Surviving a disaster scenario with your animal at your side may complicate things a bit, but it definitely shouldn’t present an insurmountable task. Having a dog with you can also serve as a great companion while alone and in survival mode and can boost your morale.
