Not really a list of instructions, but a good idea of what to put in an emergency kit.
A much more pared down version would be appropriate for the average pet owner.
Step 1: Assemble
Small enough stick on the counter, under the sink or take in the car.
We bought about a dozen of these @ $7 each at Walmart.
Acarexx - for mites
Advantage/Frontline - for fleas
Strongid - for worms
Albon - for diarrhea
Drontol - for worms
Terramycin / or other Opthalmic ointment - for eye infections
Clavamox pills - antibiotic
Calvamox liquid - antibiotic
Lysine - nutritional supplement
Laxatone - for hair balls
Anti bacterial ointment - for wounds
Earwax removal fluid
letter opener w/ razor blade for removing mats
large feeding syringe
various size medicating syringes
bottle / nipples
Also have on hand.
KMR - powdered kitten milk replacement
Lactulose, for constipation
Pedialyte unflavored, for dehydration
Obvious a pet owner wouldn't need everything all the time.
But look under your sink I bet you have collected a bunch of stuff from the vet already.
This will allow you to put it all in one place and segregate it from the 'people' medications.
If you only have 1 or 2 pets this will also give you a place to keep all your medical records WITH the medications. So you will remember who had what.
