    Default Emergency Kit - What would you include?

    Maybe this has been posted before; but in light of all the emergency incidents that seem to have come up this week on RTF, it sure has me thinking. If you were putting together the ?perfect? emergency kit to have in your truck when you are training or hunting; what would you include in it?

    Seriously, there are good threads on this in the archives and it's definitely something you want to spend some time assembling.

    As well as the articles listed in the linked article, I would add in the "Field Guide to Emergency First Aid for Hunting, Working and Outdoor Dogs" by Dr. Randy Aker, DVM
    It is available through the Retriever Journal "Book Room" for $15.

    Good information and small enough to pack into your first aid kit.

    Where ever you go, test/hunt/training, do a search for the closest vet(s), emergency clinic before you go and pre-program their number/address into your phone or gps if possible.
    Then Google/Yahoo a map and print it out. Put it in a ziploc bag in your hunting pack 'cause you might not make it back to your rig.
    Pre-applying for CareCredit (if available) can be a life saver too!

    I've heard/read TOO many stories that a guy drove his dog all the way home to get emergency care, only to be too late.

    That is a really good idea, generally a hunt test has that info available on the premises and has a vet close at hand; HOWEVER; twice I have been involved in emergency situations while training and had to go directly to an emergency vet...it helped to have the vet in my GPS!!!

    I preprogram them in for the areas I hunt . . .and even call them at the beginning of every season to be sure its still a good number. Some of my dove hunting season is in rattlesnake country. I'll also call in advance to make sure the area vet and emergency clinic still carry antivenom and have some on hand.
    Didn't think about preprograming them in my GPS. That's a great idea.
