This is the perfect kit to place in your trunk for those summer hikes, camping trips and vacations, to make sure you can help your pet if they are injured.

We have one each; canine and feline emergency preparedness kits.

Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5. You can call our office and we can fill out the tickets for you and place them in the jar (how easy is that)!
