UPDATED: Build A Dog First Aid Kit

We always bring a first aid kit for our dogs when we vacation. When we're at home we keep it in a handy location as well. You can certainly purchase a ready made kit, but you can also make one of your own.   Here are some important items to consider including in your own.

Clippers or Small Scissors
Hydrogen Peroxide
Allergy Medication
Cotton Balls
Eye Wash
Anti-itch Spray
Ear Wash
Topical Antibiotic Ointment
Blood Clotting Gel
EMT Gel (Thanks Jodi!)
Cold Compress
Tick Removal Tool
New Items:
 First Aid Adhesive Tape
Zip Closure Sandwich Bags
Antiseptic Wipes
Eye Dropper
Mineral Oil
Extra Leash
Splint Items

Copies of:

ASPCA Poison Control Number ( 1-888-426-4435)
Dog License Number
Microchip Registration Number
Rabies Vaccination Information
Local Veterinarian Numbers and Addresses

    When my peep walks us through the bush in the warmer months she always thinks about getting a first aid kit, with snake bite stuff... But forgets about it when she's at home...
