Don’t Get Caught Without These All Natural First Aid Items This Summer 1

In the spirit of the unofficial start of summer, I thought I would put together a safety post for those amazing trips we are all going to take with our pups this Memorial Day weekend.

This summer, we’re taking a road trip up the coast to Big Sur (mostly to get away from the fireworks by the beach). It’s going to be so much fun! But I know we are also going to run into a few snags along the way. It’s just best to be prepared for those inevitable mishaps to keep the fun flowing.

Running around in the woods by the river, I know we are going to get a few minor cuts, scrapes, pokey things, and allergies. They all need home remedy attention. These things happen few and far between, but when it’s time to use these items, we are really happy we have them on hand.

What I love about this first aid kit (besides it’s all natural!), is that it is safe to use for the entire family-pups and people.

Below is a home and travel first aid kit, for those times you’re camping, hiking or just around the backyard.
