Today we're looking at the Ready Dog Canine First Aid Kit. This is one of the largest kits that we sell. It covers a lot of different things that you are going to need for first aid in the field. It comes with a big bag and a lot of different things.
Most importantly, it comes with a book. That's going to give you some basic guidance on how to do certain things. I recommend that you before you take your dog out in the field you spend a little time with the book and learn how to do some basic things.
It never hurts either to talk to your vet and just learn how to do a few basic techniques that will save your dog in the field.
The majority of the time we're running into small things. We're getting stuff in the dog's eyes, getting stuff in their nose, stuff in their paws, skin tears, that type of basic stuff. But occasionally you are going to run into something serious. I've had a couple of dogs get cut pretty bad in the field and we had to get them to a vet as quickly as possible. But having the right gear made a difference in that dog surviving the trip from the field to the vet.
So, take some time. Learn how to use these tools. Make sure you've got everything that you need before you take your dog out in the field.
One thing I like to point out for folks, I travel a lot with my dogs. And when I'm in the field, especially when I'm in different states, one of the first things that I do is I find the closest vet to me. At times it's been up to 100 miles. But it helps to know where they are in case you have an emergency instead of trying to figure that out while you're dog is bleeding to death. It helps to know where they are. So that's one of those things that I do when I'm in the field just so that in case we have emergency we can get to them awfully fast.
This is one of my favorite kits. It's got a lot of different parts to it. It covers a lot of different things. It will help you protect your dog in the field.
