Home Pet First Aid Kit

I am currently reading "Eco Dog: Healthy Living for Your Pet" by 
  • A card that lists you vet's number, and also the nearest 24 hour emergency vet or vet hospital (and I would add the card should probably be laminated)
  • Gauze
  • Cotton balls
  • cotton tipped applicators (Q-Tips)
  • Low Tack adhesive bandage tape
  • Ace Bandages (self adhesive)
  • Small scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Antibacterial ointment
  • Aloe Vera gel
  • Hydrocortisone cream
  • Cornstarch (to aid in stopping bleeding)
  • Latex Gloves
  • Rectal Thermometer
  • Towels
  • Blanket
  • plus I added a nottle of Benadryl.

It is so easy to put these items together- You might find you have most of them already. I had cornstarch, antibacterial ointment, Cotton balls, q-tips, ace bandages, tweezers here already as well as towels and a small dog blanket; Everything else I was able to get at the dollar store, all I had to search out was a rectal thermometer(I just put in a regular thermometor that I marked "Rectal" with a marker. (Hopefully I don't confuse it with my oral thermomete!)
