Dog Field First Aid, Trauma, or other Kit

4 posts in this topic

Was planning on putting together a field kit for my young'n, even though she won't see a lot of field time until next year.

Just curious what should be included, I'm leaning pretty heavily on all of you. I cheated and did a google search and got some help. I know the rest of you will have some good ideas...

  • Sutures and curved suture needle, stapler
  • Hydrogen Peroxide
  • Contact Lense Rinse
  • Syringes
  • Gauze
  • Extra Dog Boots
  • Extra Collapsible Bowl and Big Bottle of Water
  • Extra Dog Food
  • Q Tips
  • Hemostat
  • Thermometer
  • Headlamp
  • Whistle
  • Cotton Balls
  • Cold Pack

Thanks Hemi. Tried a search yesterday but didn't have any luck. Wrong keywords I suppose.

Good stuff in your kit....How much spaces does everything take up in your kit?

Also, what is the EMT gel for?

A smaller tool bag or box (like a shell box) should hold most of it. It does not take up too much space. I am still working on that list and don't have everything yet....but much of it. Most stores carry it (GNDR MTN, Cabelas, Fleet Farm, etc).

I carry EMT gel on me at all times. Basically use it for any small wounds I need to take care of. It drys and helps stop the bleeding, and closes and protects the wound. It does not replace stitches though.

A product description for EMT gel:

This gel provides ideal wound care for large and small animals. Engineered for use on cuts, deep abrasions, burns and other general skin conditions. EMT Gel reduces bleeding by forming a plug and encouraging natural blood clot formation. Easy to apply, it reduces pain, protects a wound and newly formed tissue and promotes rapid healing. Conforms to any injured site.

    •   Not only that, but the boy they're hitching their wagon to ( Nunes ) said this;   Snip. "But he also re-stated his belief that Obama did not order the wiretapping of Trump Tower"  
    •   Those are great names from the kids. They seem to know where they will end up in the end! Instead of sweety, cuddles, lovey........  Lol
    • For something different and a little less expensive you could consider a Texas hog hunt.
    • red wings are back, sand hill cranes calling  all kinds of Robins nice
    • Not nails but worse, they are self tappers from the metal roofing:)  Sorry, I need to take the angle grinder out there and zip those off this weekend.  Funny you bring up the name kabob, that is actually the name of one of them if they don't produce:)   Here is a short list of the names my kids came up with:   - Kabob - Soup - Nugget - Fried - Drummie - Pot Pie   I cant remember the others but you get the point...    
    •   I agree that in the long run, the very best thing that could be done is to completely repeal the ACA and then continue to reduce government involvement. The problem with that is this is a messed caused by government that would become a disaster at least short term for some folks if it were immediately repealed. At this point, government created the mess so it has an obligation to fix it with as little damage as possible to the people.
