Sporting Dog First Aid Kit

Transcript from Steve's Video:

Today we're going to take a look at the Sporting Dog first-aid kit. We carry a pretty wide range of first-aid kits. This is one of the more popular ones that we sell. It covers a lot of different pieces. First aid kits are an important part, especially if you travel with your dog. As far as I'm concerned, if you've got a hunting dog, and even if you are 30 minutes from home, there's a lot of opportunities for them to get hurt in the field. And having the right gear on hand can mean the difference between saving a dog's life and losing him in the field.

I've had a couple of situations over the last 30 years where I had to patch a dog up in the field. The majority of them have not been life threatening, but a few of them have. And having the right gear on hand is a big deal.

What's more important, though, is actually learning how to use some of the pieces. Some of the kits that we sell, this one included, comes with a first-aid guide. It teaches you some basic techniques on how to do certain things. I think that's really important. We sell a few books and DVDs that also cover first aid. And it's important that you stop and you learn some basic techniques.

Several things that are key to patching a dog up, barbed wire is probably the biggest thing that we've dealt with, and that usually means skin tears. A skin stapler can come in handy for that. It allows you to close up large wounds and skin tears, that type of thing. I think hemostats are probably my favorite thing to have. They are good for getting small areas, closing off veins. They lock into place. I like to have several of these with me.

And then cuts are going to be a big thing that you are going to deal with. This has got an iodine scrub to it. You've got saline. You've got wraps, large gauze pads. If you have to give them pills, this is what this is designed for, giving dogs pills. Some dogs are hard to give pills to and that comes in real handy.

It's not that there's a lot of things that you have to do, but you need to know how some of these basic tools are used. So I recommend that you get a first aid kit that comes with a book. Take some time and read it before you get out in the field. It can mean the difference between your dog making it home and him not.

"Would be very useful in the event of injury in the field"

By: L From IN

It was a requested gift to my son-in-law who is active US Army, and now bird hunts in ND. He hasn't had to use it yet. ;-) He did feel that it would be very useful in the event of injury in the field.

Brittany. Hunts.
I needed to find safe scissors to use in removing bandages on a trip this fall. My Brittany was way too active to use the sharp pointed pair provided in the kit. I found a cheap ($4) pair of surgical bandage scissors from Pakistan. I added a couple of other things to the kit: A small squeeze bottle of normal saline contact lens solution (rinse out seeds), a small bottle of Natures Miracle dog soap (skunks & general clean up) and another roll of stick to itself elastic bandage.

Kit is put together well, and the bag is big enough that you can add a few other essentials to stow.

Haven't used it and I hope I never will. After a scare last season and nothing to fix a cut ear, I needed this. Has way more than I hope to ever need. The bag it all comes in is great. Well put together and doesn't take up too much space.

By: Maurice Armstrong From OR

Kinda overpriced for what you get. The book seems too generic for what is supposed to be a field kit. It mostly says see your vet right away. They enclose things like staplers and clamping forceps but don't say how or when to use them. Overall I'd say ehh!
