Your Dogs Medicine Chest - Things Every Dog Owner Should Have on Hand

It is always in your best interest as a dog owner to be prepared for an emergency. There are certain things you should always keep on hand for those unexpected emergencies.

It is always wise to be prepared for an emergency, so when you acquire a dog, you should also prepare a special medicine kit for him. You can make one up yourself or buy one already put together. The following list of items is usually good enough for most minor injuries, at least until you can get to the vet.

-absorbent cotton

-cotton swabs

-adhesive tape

-gauze bandage (2 or 3 inches wide)

-elastic self-adhesive bandage

-disposable gloves

-Vaseline

-alcohol

-antiseptic cream

-hydrogen peroxide

-flea powder

-rectal thermometer

-blunt nosed scissors

-tweezers

-small flashlight

-foil blanket (bubble wrap can be used)

-spare collar and lead

-name, address, and phone number for your veterinarian

When dealing with an injured pet, they are usually scared, disoriented and untrusting of anyone, even their owners. Never chase or corner a scared animal. Talk to him in a calm gentle voice; call him by name, and get down to his level, only moving closer to him as he calms down. After you are close to him, you should attach a leash to prevent him from running and possibly making his injury worse.

Carry out any essential first-aid procedures needed to save your dogs life or reduce his pain and stress. Keep him warm by wrapping him in a foil blanket or bubble wrap. Contact your veterinarian for adviceScience Articles, or to arrange for his assistance. Move the animal carefully and slowly and always remember to remain calm.
