In my kit, I have a large plastic Pepsi bottle that his been cut off. It is for "mouth to mouth". I also carry two types of antivenin and a syringe. I have both inflatable and traditional splints.

The one time I had to use the splints Orson and I were about 20 miles down a fire road in a National Forest, and about 45 miles to the nearest tiny town.

Oh, and I carry a printout of vets around the US and Canada that my vet gave me. On a long trip, this can be valuable.

There are first aid kits that are commercially available that are pretty high quality and pretty reasonable in cost. I do not currently carry them in my sotre but I would purchase some and stock them if there was sufficient demand. The minimum purchase from the wholesaler is not too bad but not insignificant either. Please let me know at [email protected].

If my puppy or dog is cut, could I use alcohol? I know if it's a puncture or deep cut to take her to the vet.

^ Wouldn't that hurt...like ALOT? I think it burns.

I've used Hydrogen Peroxide in the past.

Another thing that is very useful for smaller breed dogs or dogs with diabetes is to keep on hand Karo syrup or glucose in a tube. In the case of severely low blood sugar, rubbing a little of this in dogs gums may save your life until you can get the vet to stabilize.

This is an Important Summer First Aid Tip For Dogs

Now that it is summer, it is important to remember to plan ahead for the safety of your dog. Many dog owners know that their pets are notorious for snapping and biting bees, wasps, hornets and all kinds of flying and (more importantly) stinging insects.

The obvious thing is what happens next, after your pet swallows a bee or wasps or hornet? The insect does what it does best and stings your pet on the inside of their mouth or nose or some other place on their face. This can cause a lot of pain and problems for your dog.

A great medicine to keep on hand just for this purpose is Benadryl. You are right to give them no more than one milligram per pound of body weight. You may even want to start out with half of this amount, just to avoid over medicating (even with larger animals). You can always give more later.
