    If you are looking for something to take into the field - The Field Guide to Emergency First Aid for Hunting, Working and Outdoor Dogs by Randy Acker DVM - is a good one. Lots of information, waterproof and small enough to fit into your pocket.

    I would like a list of what you bring instead of a book to buy.

    Yellow Machine, one won't do much good without the other. If you do a search, you will find some very good lists of items. I got my info here, (and the book mentioned above) before our first cross country trip with the dogs. I have had everything I needed it when I needed it if that is any indicator. We have been fortunate, only very minor calls for first aid in our travels over the years.

    Dr Acker's book has a comprehensive list of items for a kit. If I remember correctly, Dr Ed (as well as others) here on RTF have put together comprehensive lists of items for a first aid kit

    That is the list I used. Thanks to the Snows for being able to post links for these things. I know they are out there, but not how to get 'em here!

    I just ordered the Field Guide mentioned above. It was $16 including postage. I have another Home Vet Handbook but I am not very happy with it.

    I received my Field Guide. I don't believe the author when he said he could get all the first aid kit supplies in a fanny pack. LOL!

    If you have an iPhone, there are apps for dog first aide.
