Transcript from Steve's Video:Today we're looking at the Ready Dog Canine First Aid Kit. This is one of the largest kits that we sell. It covers a lot of different things that you are going to need for first aid in the field. It comes with a big bag and a lot of different things.Most importantly, it comes with a book. That's going to give you some basic guidance on how to do certain things. I recommend that you before you take your dog out in the field you spend a little time with the book and learn how to do some basic things.
It never hurts either to talk to your vet and just learn how to do a few basic techniques that will save your dog in the field.The majority of the time we're running into small things. We're getting stuff in the dog's eyes, getting stuff in their nose, stuff in their paws, skin tears, that type of basic stuff. But occasionally you are going to run into something serious. I've had a couple of dogs get cut pretty bad in the field and we had to get them to a vet as quickly as possible.
But having the right gear made a difference in that dog surviving the trip from the field to the vet.So, take some time. Learn how to use these tools. Make sure you've got everything that you need before you take your dog out in the field.One thing I like to point out for folks, I travel a lot with my dogs. And when I'm in the field, especially when I'm in different states, one of the first things that I do is I find the closest vet to me.
At times it's been up to 100 miles. But it helps to know where they are in case you have an emergency instead of trying to figure that out while you're dog is bleeding to death. It helps to know where they are. So that's one of those things that I do when I'm in the field just so that in case we have emergency we can get to them awfully fast.This is one of my favorite kits. It's got a lot of different parts to it.
It covers a lot of different things. It will help you protect your dog in the field. Steve Snell BEST-SELLER. "Very complete kit." By: Joe Bob ShirleyGSP. Owns 12 dogs. Hunts.

Hunts.Just a comment on your first-aid-focused newsletter.
Two additional items I carry for my hounds, readily available (not buried in my pack with the standard first-aid), are tools I'd need to release them from traps. Wire-cutters on my multi-tool to cut through a snare trap. And a long length of rope to release them from conibear traps (need to practice and know how to do this!).

We spend lots of time outdoors, and with this kit in her harnesses bags, we are ready for any emergency. Covers more that the basics, and its a great value.

With the nearest vet over 1 hour away this kit was priceless.

The kit, like many kits, has things you'll probably never use, but I supplemented it with things specific to where I hunt and I know work. I disagree with some of the things the lady vet wrote in the enclosed first aid book, but I read it cover to cover and checked every item in the kit. The travel bag is about the right size.Product Rating: 3 out of 5-stars.Review ID: 14389Reviewed: 2014-10-09 Customer Review #31713 By: Stephen Hutson From NCHunts.
I returned it simply because I wanted something that would be more geared towards an emergency such as trauma. I already keep a bug out bag in my truck which has a lot of general first aid supplies in it.Would have liked to see at least one tourniquet and more blood-clotting agents like the CELOX.I ended up putting together a very small kit for my hunting coat that would help me get back to the truck should something bad happen in the field.
It's actually a pretty good general first aid kit but just not quite what I needed.Product Rating: 3 out of 5-stars.Review ID: 31713Reviewed: 2016-10-07 RD Pro Dog 1st Aid Kit Rated 5 stars from 4 user ratings. 8/5/2011Summary: Very complete kit.

An equipment is one of the largest investments you may at any time make. Appliances are normally hefty purchases, and therefore are a person from the most important elements of your own home. You depend upon appliances for all the things from cooking to cleaning, and especially looking at the amount of income you are going to be placing forth for it, it only is sensible that you would want to be sure you make the most smart purchase.
Dwelling appliances is usually a term which happens to be made use of quite popularly right now but exactly what does it stand for? Residence appliances stand with the mechanical and electrical items that are utilized in the home to the operating of the typical family.
My background is a bit different than many of the dog handlers on the SportDOG® ProStaff. I’m a tactical paramedic. I work with law enforcement and service dogs. In fact, I’ve never hunted with dogs. However, I’ve trained explosive-detection canines, and I specialize in cadaver dogs. Today, I teach canine handlers and emergency medical responders how to care for and treat dogs in emergency situations.
My emphasis is on dealing with injuries in the field, and the number one goal is to stabilize the dog until you can seek professional treatment. My canine first aid kit reflects this goal. With that in mind, one point I like to emphasize up front is that in an emergency, don’t be afraid to be a “MacGyver.” In other words, as long as what you are doing is working, it’s probably a good idea.
My canine first aid kit is also my personal first aid kit, because a kit for a dog is basically the same thing as a kit for a person. Most of the supplies have crossover use. When you think of it that way, it takes some of the mystery out of preparing for emergencies. One thing you don’t want to share, though, is a thermometer, because we take a dog’s temperature rectally! Many canine health emergencies are related to hyperthermia (too hot) or hypothermia (too cold), so that’s why the thermometer is so important.
See my previous article on dealing with heat-related emergencies. While the contents of a first aid kit might vary somewhat due to personal preferences, my advice is to start with your own personal kit and then add to it. If you already have a kit, I’d guess it includes bandages, tweezers, some compression wrap and some sort of disinfectant. Build on that. Again, there’s no reason to have two kits.
Add that thermometer I mentioned, or better yet, add two. I suggest adding some extra gauze as well. Some other contents I never leave home without include super glue and duct tape. If they can duct tape a NASCAR car together, you can certainly duct tape a dog. It’s cheap and it’s readily available. If your dog is cut up and you need to close him up right now, duct tape is probably a good option.
You don’t need to buy expensive medical tape. It might not even stick in a situation where your dog is soaking wet, but duct tape sticks to pretty much everything. Hydrogen peroxide is another good crossover item. It’s used for cleaning wounds, but if your dog ingests something that it shouldn’t, it also induces vomiting in canines. Use caution, though, because once you induce vomiting with hydrogen peroxide, there is no off switch.
The dog is going to throw up until it throws up everything. Still, if you’re not sure what the dog just ate and you have a suspicion, it’s probably best not to risk your dog. I know I won’t. I’m going to make him throw up everything he ate. Be sure to consult with your veterinarian about the proper use of hydrogen peroxide in emergency situations. Rubbing alcohol is another item that has double purpose.
It can clean wounds, and you can use it to help cool your dog down because it evaporates faster than water, making it ideal in humid environments. You can use human medication on dogs, too. Keep in mind when administering medication to dogs; they are like a 7-year-old with a super-fast metabolism. The medicine is absorbed and goes through their system faster than adults. Again, check with your vet so you understand the effects of various medicines and proper dosages.
Pediatric Benadryl is something I always carry. It works great for mild allergic reactions. The common dose for dogs is 1 mg per pound, up to a maximum of 50 mg. The pediatric pills come in 25 mg doses, so most hunting dogs will probably get two pills. I also keep buffered aspirin in my pack for pain. For dogs, it has to be buffered and it can only be used for short-term treatment. Long-term use can create ulcers in the dog’s stomach.
Again, this is just for the short term to help the dog get through the pain on the way to the hospital. Below is my basic first aid checklist. You may want to add to it, but with this basic list you are ready for short-term emergencies, both for yourself and your dog. First Aid Check List Thermometer Travel size bottle of rubbing alcohol Travel size bottle of hydrogen peroxide Neosporin Several sizes of gauze pads (sterile and non-sterile) Duct tape Medical tape Trauma pad Super glue Alcohol prep pads Band-Aids Veterinary self-cling wrap Trauma shears Multi-tool with needle-nose pliers Knife Pediatric Benadryl Buffered aspirin Israeli pressure dressing (a great add-on option that can be found online)
