Preparing for the Worst
Bark Buckle UP offers free Pet Safety Kits for the car.
Bark Buckle UP's free Pet Safety Kit makes it easy to keep emergency information in your car.

Recently I went to a pet first aid seminar presented by a friend and veterinarian. Ever since, I’ve been busy preparing the supplies that I might need in an emergency, particularly when I’m away from home at a trial or on vacation. 

One of the recommendations was to create an emergency card for each of your dogs to attach onto their crates in the car. The card lists basic information, allergies, important vaccination dates, and states that you will reimburse all medical expenses. 

In my quest to assemble all of the first aid kit supplies, I came across Bark Buckle UP, a group dedicated to educating and promoting awareness for pet safety while traveling.

To encourage pet lovers to keep safety information in their car, they’re offering a free Pet Safety Kit.

The packets include emergency information cards (first pet is free, additional pets are $1 each) and a first responder window sticker that directs emergency workers to the glove compartment for more information. 

Car safety extends beyond seatbelts and crates. As pet lovers do more traveling with their furry companions, efforts like Bar Buckle UP’s Pet Safety Kit are even more important to ensure our pups are cared for in the event of an emergency.
