    I just bought one ready-made for $70. It has a staple gun with 35 sterile staples. I hear that is a must-have. Assortment of other stuff and comes in a nice satchel. I got it at Sportsmen's.

    There's been a thread or two on here about that. As I recall, someone posted some long lists of things they carried. Mine is a mixture of come ready made kits and duplicates of things I carry in my bag for people. I think it depends on how far from help you'll be as to how extensive you want to get. Main things I've used are eye wash, vet wrap,gauze, waterproof adhesive tape, stapler (several times!), dog boots, antibiotic ointment and some meds from the vet.

    I was thinking of things out side real basic stuff. (I.E. Vet wrap, tape, guaze, saline, eye wash.) Never thought about stapler or boots.

    Add to that benadryl, Aspirin, peroxide and a diet coke, and you got all the things we've had to run to find when events have happened. Although I'm old school prefer sutures (needle & thread), probably because I've never gotten a stapler to work correctly.

    And this book, I've used it more time than I care to admit

    Fox-tails up the nose, you shake the coke, pour it down the nose and it cause them to sneeze horribly, usually dislodging the seed. Any carbonated beverage works, but diet coke has always seemed to be the best, can't tell you how many times we've have panicked individuals hunting down diet coke.

    Goes well with the Jack Daniels too
