Recommended Posts

Is there a good ready made first aid kit at a reasonable price?

NIMHO. To many items not really needed, items really needed not included.  Really cheaper to get a tool box and fill it yourself with what you need. I've had my own for over 35 years now. Includes dog and human items...

Here's a list of items if you decide to make your own.

That's a pretty good list!  From a few trips to ND pulling quills out of German dogs, I will add a stout stick about a foot long and 1.5" diameter , can be found on site, to be held by the dog holder as a mouth gag between the molars to prevent the quill puller getting bit and to improve the view, along with the mentioned head lamp and Leatherman.

I believe Dogwood or one of the other vets around here put a list together for a first aid kit about a year ago or so. I tried searching for the post but got an error message.

 

I have this one from gundog supply which is pretty thorogh and I added some items from the above list.  I also bought the same kit for my daughter's dog.

My vet put together a kit for me.  I think it was under $100 (maybe more like $75) that I keep in my field bag.  I haven't had to use it yet but gives me piece of mind knowing I have it.

Every year about this time I get my vet to give me fresh meds for 2 conditions. 

Metronidazole for diahrrea. 

Acepromazine (Dramimine) for throwing up.  

 

I had one trip pretty much ruined when 2 of my pointers got into something that caused them to be sick!

 

Also add some moleskin sheets and precut blister "bandaids" for your feet.

Apomorphine is used to induce vomiting, acepromazine is a tranquilizer.

I use acepromazine to STOP vomiting, not induce. I have one Lab that gets car sick going around the block!!! Ha...
