Taking care of your "Antler Dog"

In the news recently, we've read a lot about preparing your dog for an emergency situation. Creating a first aid kit could be a great way to protect your pet.

Here are a few suggested items for your dog's first aid kit.

Start with a plastic tote or container (even a large book bag may work). It would also be a great idea to make two kits, one for home and one for the car.

Your Kit Might Include:

  • Batteries
  • Flashlight
  • Cotton balls and/or Q-tip swabs
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Sterile gauze pads and bandages
  • First aid tape
  • Antibacterial ointment
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Antiseptic wipes
  • Extra leash
  • Styptic powder (helps to stop bleeding)
  • Prescription medications (for you and your pets)
  • Sterile latex gloves
  • Book or notes on pet first aid
  • Mineral oil
  • Buffered aspirin
  • Benadryl
  • A soft blanket
  • Self-activating hot pack
  • Self-activating ice pack
  • Hydrocortisone cream
  • Thermometer
  • Bottle (for water)

There are many more items that might also be essential, even an antler dog chew (smile).  Remember, proper planning brings peace of mind.
