Dog First-aid Kit

November 1, 2008

If your dog is injured he will be uncooperative during treatment, even going so far as to try and bit or scratch the caretaker. The dog may be frightened, so it’s very important for the caretaker to secure the dog so it calms down and doesn’t aggravate the existing wound or cause additional harm to it.

A simple dog pet first-aid kit should consist of scissors, tape, bandages and basic medications such as milk of magnesia, antibiotics, mineral oil and a common antidiarrheal formula
It is very necessary while treating that you have to muzzle the dog to protect the caretaker. To muzzle the dog, use tape or a cloth to loop around the dog’s mouth and then tie off the material behind the dog’s ears.
