    Default First aid

    What kind of first aid gear do you all carry with you or would recommended to have on hand for working dogs?

    Not for use in the field but definitely helpful away from home...after a road trip where one of my dogs developed hot spots, I have electric clippers in my truck now.

    A couple of people recommend keeping something like Coke on hand as well for fox tails up the nose (http://www.retrievertraining.net/for...-first-aid-kit). Also hydrogen peroxiode to induce vomiting. Udder Butter. Not sure if these were mentioned in the other threads.

    I put my own kit together, thinking I would mostly be adding to the human first aid kit...but it was a lot of work tracking down some of the items and I think a lot bulkier. A lot of the things on Dr. Ed's list you have to get through a vet (at least around here).
