First Aid Kits

Recommended Posts

lavanid - salve and fluid to clean wounds, bandages, metacam (pain relieve and anti-inflammery) and lots of homeopathic globuli.

Sorry for butchering the english language. I try to keep the mistakes to a minimum.

No car.


At home - saline, sudocrem, a syringe for flushing out dirt, cotton wool, dressings, vetwrap.

Cornflour in case a nail gets quicked.

Clean cotton rags - I always have a supply of these, they are useful for so many clean-up jobs around the house.

The odd old sock, t-shirt, etc, already customised to prevent a dog getting at a wound. Think I have some left-over rubber 'pawz' still too.


No antibiotic ointment - antibiotics are prescription-only in the UK.

"It is also to be noted of every species, that the handsomest of each move best ... and beasts of the most elegant form, always excel in speed; of this, the horse and greyhound are beautiful examples."----Wiliam Hogarth, The Analysis of Beauty, 1753.

First of all I bought a large plastic tool kit at Menards to hold all my supplies. It sure has come in very handy and I make sure to always bring with to a meet and greet and all my greyhound trips.
I have: Wound Wash sterile saline spray, a small bottle of hand sanitizer (for me) cotton balls, q-tips, triple antibiotic gel, thieves oil, Purification oil, Vetericyn ( highly recommend this product for wound and skin care), Quick Stop, Pepto Bismol, thermomator, low does aspirin, Greyhounds are not "regular" dogs blood work lab result card, a small flash light,scissors, non-stick bandages, gauze, a number of rolls of vet wrap, Deramax, Benadryl and more vet wrap.
I my almost 9 years of having greyhounds I have become an expert at bandaging my hounds boo-boos.
