  • Gauze pads

  • A sheet or towel that can be used to carry your puppy in a supine position

  • A tourniquet rod (use only in severe emergencies)

  • Hydrogen peroxide/betadine solution

  • The poison hotline number and a list of all poisonous plants

  • Bacitracin

  • Ice packs

  • Snakebite kit, if you’re in snake country

  • Towels to wet in case of heatstroke

  • Rectal thermometer

  • Towel and water jug (to be kept in your car) in case you get stranded

Note: Be sure to update the kit regularly, replacing any expired products.
