I have got back into coon hunting earlier this year and I was wondering what would be good to have on hand at the house for my dogs.

Medical wise

Any help would help

Thanks Eric

We keep pretty much a little of everything for people and animals in one big basket. It has scissors, medical tape (wide and narrow), gauze pads, a couple of rolls of bandage in different widths, hydrogen peroxide, Q-tips, cotton balls, a rubber ear syringe, tweezers, drawing salve, Neosporin, Bacitracin, rubber gloves, muscle rub, glycerine, assorted Band-aids, thermometers, dental pick set, rubbing alcohol, aluminum sulfate, baking soda, a couple of rolled Ace bandages, a couple of sewing needles and a spool of thread, some disposable razors and some assorted other stuff. We always have a lampshade collar (can't think of the right name), some spare t-shirts and socks and string around because they can be used to muzzle a dog, bind up a larger wound, hold together loose and flapping skin, keep the dog from chewing or licking an area, or cover an area that is already bandaged. Splints aren't necessary because we have bamboo growing and anything else can be "MacGyvered" if needed.

We call then "coneheads"

Actually I believe they are called "Elizabethan" Collars

Thanks for reminding me of the name. Now if you look for one at a pet or feed store they are calling them E-collars.

I keep it all in a bucket, but here's the things I'm always reaching for:

Antibacterial cream
Bag Balm
Blue Lotion

I also keep some of that yellow powder (can't remember what it is) that's used for eye infections. You just squirt it in the infected eye. I have a tub of NuStock too, but seldom use it. Penicillan in the fridge for puctures. Seems my dogs are always getting a wire cut or scratched up from running in the berry bushes.

don't forget the duck tape, put it over the bandage or gauze and it well keep together to you can get to a vet. Keflez is also good to give right away if its a bad wound.

Cephalexin and doxacycline work for animal bites. I believe snake bites carry a gram negative bacteria so for them you would need clavamox or cipro or baytril. While Cephalexexin is effective against some gram neg bacteria I still believe Clavamox would be a better choice. Jaime

I keep all the above and then some. I have found that the most important of all is a tube of EMT Gel. That might be the only thing that saves your dog from bleeding to death in bad situations. I carry a tube in my hunting coat 24/7. I have also found the best thing to keep your Medical supplies in for dogs is an Overgrown Double Decker Tackle Box. You can put all your bottle medicine (Prescriptions) in the little lure trays. You can keep all your syringe needles seperated in the little worm compartments. All kinds of Iodine swabs and bee sting swabs, bandages, sciccors, etc can all be seperated. And the bottom still has room for big stuff, like a can of bag balm, a bottle of blue lotion spray, staple guns, bottle of Ivomec, and whatever else you might want to add. When you get ready to go it's all packaged up, just grab it and throw it in the truck. Tacklebox is waterproof, so anywhere it lands will work and everything you need is right there.

I keep a bottle of acepromazine (dog sedative from the vet) with my hunting supplies. Very helpful for settling down a panicked dog while getting him to treatment.
I also keep superglue, for gluing back flaps of skin, split toenails, etc..
Another useful tool: magnifying glass for finding thorns, splinters, examining bites, etc.
And for those of you who live in porcupine country, like I do, a pair of pliers is essential!
Also, styptic powder.
