What's in your "in the field" emergency kit for your dog?

Sounds good but throw in some EMT jell and an antihistamine in case of a snake run-in. And of course the address and phone number of closest vet.

I had my Vet put together a snake bite kit with written instructions on what to give and in what order. I keep it on the mule when it is warm enough for snakes to be a problem and hope I never have to use it.

I will say this. Opening weekend my 7 month old pointer hit a a barbed wire fence and opened his front left leg and the artery. I had some "Wound Seal" I purchased from Walgreens. Poured it on the wound and bandaged it up and went to vet. Two hours later the vet told me I did the right thing. Blood was pumping out just like in the movies. If I would have not had that things might have been alot worse.

Other than stuff already mentioned. Package off Odormute. It's a bad day on a long road trip when the dog has a skunk encounter. You need something that you can mix up to treat the dog with on site.

Remember that you can use some of the stuff in there for yourself. Add Benadryl cream or it's generic. I couple of friends got into fire ants while opening a gap on our Saturdays hunt. You can put the cream on the bite immediately and the mark will go down within 30 minutes. Leave it untreated and I might still be there next year.

Now, let me add some info. I also went online and printed out 2 first aid books for dogs and read them through. You have to know how to apply the kit before it's good. Also have cheat sheets on how much medicine to use and what to do in different situations. I'm 51 yrs young and I learned along time ago when your in "GO" mode you can't always trust your mind to recall everything exactly like you need.

One other thing I just thought of. I'm also a trapper down on my own property. One would be wise to carry a piece of rope in their vest about 4 feet long. If your dog gets caught in a conibear trap you'll need it to get them out. I know alot of the WMA's either don't allow or they have some kinda of restrictions on trapping, but if some guy that doesn't respect laws and regulations gets out there and sets out a conibear trap and your dog gets caught in it, he will die if you are not prepared. Be sure to youtube rope and conibear to learn how to release them.
