“It is so rewarding teaching pet owners how to rescue Rover or help Fluffy feel better, but in addition to a caring heart and loving hands, you need your pet’s ‘tool kit’ to complete the task.  Although my students go home with the best intentions of making their own kits…it just wasn’t happening, so a few years back, I decided to do the job for them. My kits include all the items students are taught to use in my classes and books, not just lots of gauze, but a great variety of top quality products to give you a leg up on helping your pet!”

The Sunny-dog Ink line consists of four PAWmazing Pet First-Aid Kits.  Each includes an informative pocket guide and laminated pull-out tips to walk care-givers through the necessary steps:

    The Dog-About-Town Kit comes in a fanny pack to keep dog walkers prepared and hands-free.  It includes a cell phone and water bottle pouch along with paw cream to aid on rough terrain, water bowl, doggie bag dispenser, wound care spray and bandaging materials to insure every sniff can be enjoyed along the way until you get to your more complete pet kit in your car or house.

  • The No Place Like Home Kits (one for dogs and one for cats) have been designed to prevent further injury and alleviate discomfort from a sudden injury or illness before you reach veterinary help.  Bandaging materials, meds, tweezers, scissors, thermometer & gel, muzzle (in case your best friend is in great distress), anti-bacterial cleanser, electrolyte replenisher, styptic powder, eye wash, hydrogen peroxide and more are included.
  • The Dog-on-the-Go Ultimate Hiking & Travel First-Aid Kit is for the dog and his human who live life to the fullest — it is the home kit on steroids!  With extra bandaging and splinting materials, paw protector cream, stethoscope and emergency whistle-compass-outdoor temperature gauge, it will keep both you and your canine companion on-track and out of the heat.  Newly added products make this kit a necessity for pet parents everywhere.
