Wag'n Rover Respond'r Emergency Kit Review and Giveaway

Wag'n Rover Respond'r Picture 1

When I signed up to review the SmartBones dog bones through Mom Blog Society, I was also given the opportunity to review The Wag'n Rover Respond'r Emergency Kit. This is an emergency kit for your animals. Not for you, but rather for the emergency responders to any crisis you may have. Things happen. Things that are out of your control can be devastating to you and your family. This kit is something that can help emergency crews know that you have animals in your home or your vehicle and what those responders can do to help locate/take care of them. It really has everything you can think you might need. Here's what comes in the kit:

  • 1 Mobile Emergency Pocket Folder
  • 1 RR™ Vehicle Alert Decals
  • 2 RR™ Home Alert Decals
  • 2 RR™ Animal Transport Forms
  • 1 Wag’N Pet Passport® (for 1 dog)
  • 1 CD-ROM with Interactive Documentation
  • Useful Pet Forms:
    • Pet Owner Information Form
    • Emergency Contact Form
    • Pet Profile Form
    • Printable Emergency Wallet Card
    • Printable Lost Pet Poster
    • Printable Stolen Pet Poster
  • SPECIAL BONUS: Receive a FREE PET FIRST AID BANDANA with every RoverRespond'R Kit!

Sorry about the glare on a couple of the pictures. These are all pictures of what came in the kit. I printed the pages after I typed in my pet's information. Since I have 2 dogs and 2 cats, I just filled in the pet information page 4 different times. I have a snake too...So I guess I need to fill it out for her too. I didn't think of that until just now. All the documents come on the disk. You put in the cd and it opens up a page telling you how to use this kit. There are links to the documents you need to fill out. Those pages open up in a web browser and basically are using Adobe Acrobat to run. You just type in the information about your animal, which includes things like name, what they eat, how often they eat, how often do they need walks, medication, emergency contacts, vet information, and microchip information. I am terrible in that I don't know my pet's microchip information, but next time we see the vet, I will get that to fill in the forms. This way there is no mistaking your dog or cat when the rescue crews are there to help.

Once you have your forms all filled out, you fold them and put them in the nice glove box sized folder provided in the kit. You put this in the glove box of your car and put a sticker in the window of the car to show the crews where your pets information can be found. What I really like about this is that the only way you lose your emergency forms from whatever disaster has happened is if your car blows up. If that happens, your pets as well as yourself are probably gone so the information really isn't needed in that situation. Morbid thought, but the truth. Otherwise, if your house catches on fire, the emergency documents won't also catch on fire and be useless. They are safe in your car where crews can get them and still go into your home to find your pets. Two stickers are provided in the kit as well for you to put some place in your home. These ask you to write the number of dogs, cats, and other critters on them so that crews see it and then know to look for your emergency kit outside. I would recommend they get put in windows.

Now the kit only came with one passport. If you need more than one, you can purchase them individually. The passport has you pets medical records in it. It would include shot records, license information, vet information, and medications. I filled it out for Fenris because he is our escape artist. If anything were to happen to our home or we got into a car accident with him in the vehicle, he will run. He will see the wide open area and just keep going and going. Now he does tend to swing back round, but who knows how long it will take him to decide to do that AND he might not be done running when he does it either. He just stops by to say, "Look at me!" I figure he needs the passport more than anyone else. When we can afford to buy passports for everyone else, we will get them. Did I mention that you can put your pet's photo in the passport and on the emergency forms? I think that is really awesome since it will give emergency crews an idea of what your pet looks like. The kit even came with Missing Posters that you put your contact information on and a picture of your pet as well. If something happens and your pet gets away, you don't have to try to figure out how to make the posters necessary to find them.

Buy it! The Wag'n Rover Respond'r Kit really is something that every pet owner should have. You just never know when something will happen and it is better to be safe than sorry (a personal motto of mine).
