    Default Do you have a canine first-aid kit? What's in it?

    Knock on wood, I've never had a canine injury I've needed supplies to address, but I've often thought it would not be a bad idea to have a small kit of basics on hand, especially when we take the dogs to my parents' cabin, which is in a very rural area. The nearest vet is a good hour away.

    I imagine some of the horse stuff I have could be incorporated, like Vetwrap.

    What's in your first-aid kit and why?

    I do!

    Mine has: vetwrap, gauze, Hibitane, Gas X (for bloat), styptic powder, squirt saline solution, Derma Gel, syringes and no stick tape.

    The pressurized saline solution is the best thing ever! Makes cleaning wounds on squirmy dogs much easier.

    Horses and dogs share, except for ear cleaner and emergency pain meds.
