    DefaultFirst Aid

    We are wanting to make a first aid kit for our Lola. We want it to be something that her humans could comfortably carry with them or even small enough to stick in her pack that she carries. What would you place in the kit?

    I have a first aid kit for Cassie which my vet prepared for me.

    I just read the list on the above link. Aren't those too much to carry? You'll need a whole hand back for all that.

    I only have the most crucial stuff. Two shots ...one for stings if she gets swollen and one shot for poison. Plus I have a couple of roll gauzes and a nausea pill if we do a long trip up to mountains.

    I will see if my vet will make a kit for us, I was thinking the same thing.....way too much to carry but great ideas to include in a kit.

    You can have a big box with many stuff and leave it in the car, and if you go hiking you can only take the shots with you and some roll gauzes.

    A bottle of water, EMT gel, and a roll of vetrap. The rest you can leave in your car.

    For what purpose is the EMT gel?

    My first aid kit has most of the the stuff that's on that list. Plus a few other things like hemostats, styptic pencil, antiseptic cream and puffer (got these from my vet), tweezers, razor. When we're out hunting pheasant, I usually carry the essential items in a pocket, and the rest of it is in a dog handler's bag along with water, collapsible bowl, portable waterer (that I carry clipped on my belt), food, treats, etc. If we're hunting out of a blind, the bag is in the blind with us. Over the years my kit has grown from a ziploc bag of stuff that I could shove in my vest, to a larger plastic container that's in the handler's bag.

    Mistarkos, EMT gel is an antiseptic ointment that seals off a wound, reduces pain, and promotes healing and blood clotting. Which reminds me, I still need to get some of this.
