Adventure Medical Kits is now providing first aid necessities for canine with their Adventure Dog Series. When I heard about my friend’s new GSP I thought it would be a good excuse to get some quality puppy time and deliver the requisite puppy present.
Libby really likes the nifty carry case. It seems to contain most of the first aid basics with all types of bandages, medical scissors, saline and syringe for flushing eyes or ears, antihistamine, aspirin, tweezers, a leash which could also be used as a tourniquet. Maybe the best addition are the pet and people first aid guides which detail common injuries and treatment procedure.
We’re always adding new gear to our med kits, but this gives adventure seekers a really good start. Throw it in the truck and forget about it. Hopefully you’ll never need it but chances are hard working dogs will get a few bumps and bruises afield that need tending.
At around $45, it’s makes a great gift for new dog owners and a good way to remind those headed out with dogs to be prepared for pet mishaps.
