Back in the day I had this crazy notion that I was going to open my own gift basket company. Fast forward to today and I realize that’s exactly what that idea was: crazy. I do, however, love to do gift baskets and prizes for fundraisers, to donate to rescues, animal shelters, and also to gift to dog friends and during the holiday season.
Anyone who knows me knows I am not the world’s craftiest person, but I try. I won’t see be opening my own Etsy store, but I am darned proud of the crafts and fun projects I’ve done in the past. Here is a flurry of ideas and how to assemble a DIY dog health gift basket to donate to a dog rescue or to gift to a dog lover.

Items For A Dog Health Gift Basket
First Aid Kit
Not all dog first aid kits are created equal. Some of them just lack the right products. In addition to adding anything ‘extra,’ a good first aid kit should give a dog parent the basics in case of an emergency. We like the Pet First Aid Kit with the foldable bowl from Diatonic Designs. With over 40 items, this pack can be used for both people and pets so you never have to take two first aid kits along.
Probonix Probiotic For Dogs
As the name implies, probiotics are the good stuff; that is, they are the beneficial bacteria that live in the gut, or GI, system. Bacteria in probiotics help the digestive, regulatory, and immune systems of the body. Our dog has been taking Probonix as a regular part of his diet for over two months and we’ve been thrilled with the results. Why? I want my dog’s immune system to be healthy The bacteria that makes up the gut of mammals can have a serious impact on overall health. Once I understood this, I understood why probiotics are good for me and my dog. Since not all probiotics for dogs are created equally, I talked to the folks at Probonix in person. You simply shake the bottle so the probiotics are evenly distributed and drop it onto your dog’s food daily. If the food is hot, simply wait until it cools a bit and then add the product. Probonix is made up of 100% natural ingredients.I loved hearing learning about this product, so I decided to become an affiliate. You can order from Humarian for probiotics for your dog and all members of the family.

DIY Dog Health Basket Presentation
If I were to gift my friends with medical products, they would be grateful for sure, but there is something oh so fun about putting together a gift box of inexpensive but thoughtful items for fellow dog-loving friends. We picked up a cute gift box and some raffia shred to line the bottom of the box. We like to wrap our gift boxes for added effect (and to heighten the holiday suspense), but you could just pop a bow on top and the gift is set for giving.
Here’s how a pro does it in under three minutes. There are so many cute baskets in craft stores and online, that the sky’s the limit when gifting or donating to a dog rescue:
