Heart First aid kit for your babies

On Marge's advise I am starting a new thread. I think it is really important that we have everything we might need in an emergency. Please, please feel free to add your suggestions.
1. Hydrogen peroxide
2. Alcohol
3. Eye wash
4. tweezers
5. Cotton swabs and cotton pads
6. Syringes of different sizes, for water or meds.

Please join us and add what you consider necessary.

I do have all of those items. Do you think a thermometer is good to add. I have one for Zoe and one for humans available. I think everyone should have available for themselves an emergency ER/hospital and poison control phone numbers. Great idea to start this thread!

This is my basic list:

Triple antibiotic ointment
Hydrogen Peroxide
Hydrocortisone cream
Alcohol swabs
Benadryl
Pepto Bismal
Kaopectate
Baby Aspirin
Self-adhering bandages
Gauze pads
Eye wash
Baby syringe (no needle) marked w/m’s or cc’s for medication administration
Cold Pack
Styptic powder to stop bleeding
Cotton swabs/cotton balls
Thermometer (normal rectal temperature is between 101.0 to 102.5 degrees)
Copy of vaccination record (in plastic sheet)
Pedialite to replace fluids



I keep everything in a three drawer cart.

If your Maltese has any medical problems, I also recommend getting a medical alert tag for her collar or harness. Lady's said "diabetic and epileptic" and had the name and telephone number on my vet.

I also always keep a can of pumpkin on hand and also a jar of Gerber chicken sticks.

This is a good website to bookmark for dosages if you do need to give OTC medications when your vet isn't available.

I have everything Marj listed except the HP as our's here is a different strength. I will have DH pick one up in the US shortly.
I also have cortisone---Lisi is very allergic & if she gets a bee sting or tries to eat one (more likely) then I have to have it on-hand.
I also suggest a special tweezer to remove ticks & small plastic bags to seal the tick in in the event the bite causes symptoms. I label the bags ahead of time w/pups names so they are ready to go. Then I put the date on the plastic bag---to help vet decide when to start antibiotics.
I have a small instrument w/light to look into the ears (esp. good if you have foxtails where you live).

I went the easy route a few years ago and bought a kit (can't remember from where though). I check expiration dates and update everything twice a year.

This website has a ton of things to include - guess we need a suitcase!

Default First aid kit for your babies

Benedryl can come in handy! One of my boys had 3 or 4 wasp stings and my vet hAd me give him a Benny and watch him. He did fine.
