Everyone who shares a home with a pet should have a basic pet first-aid kit on hand. This kit can be purchased, or you can put one together yourself.

Keep your pet’s first-aid kit in your home and take it with you during traveling with your Rescue Bulldog.

This list is brief and does not take the place of advice provided by your own family vet.
