I'm a stickler for having a pet first aid kit in the house!

Triple antibiotic ointment
Hydrogen Peroxide
Hydrocortisone cream
Alcohol swabs
Benadryl
Pepto Bismal
Kaopectate
Baby Aspirin
Self-adhering bandages
Gauze pads
Eye wash
Small syringe (no needle) marked w/m’s or cc’s for medication administration
Cold Pack
Styptic powder to stop bleeding
Cotton swabs/cotton balls
Thermometer (normal rectal temperature is between 101.0 to 102.5 degrees)
Copy of shot record (in plastic sheet)
Pedialite to replace fluids


You can get one of those plastic storage conatiners with a lid at Walmart or the dollar store to keep everything in. Also, download a copy of of this emergency first aid for pets from the Red Cross, put it in a plastic sleeve, and tuck it in there, too.

Hi there,
Well lets see, you will need:
comb and pin brush
leave in detangling spray
bed
kennel
possibly a baby gate (for times when the baby is allowed to play outside of the pen)
maybe a little blanket for snuggles
nail clippers
a mustache trimmer or something to trim pads
probably some Bitter Apple spray
some ear cleaner/wash
tearless shampoo for the face
leash and halter
and lots of patience :D

I'm sure the other's will fill in anything I have left off.

Something to clean up accidents with
Toothbrush and toothpaste
Leash & harness
Clothes if you plan on Dash wearing them
Bitter Apple spray
Id tag for harness

As for treats, Wally and Toby go nuts for the dehydrated chicken strips (found at Wal-Mart or Sam's Club).

You might look around and check out vets in your area now, so later if you feel the need to call or drop in, you know how to get there and who will be treating your baby. When I was vet searching, I had to look around for a few days to find one that took calls all day and all night. I finally found one that switches you over to the vet on call if you need them in the middle of the night. Also, maybe a baby blanket? Its not absolutely neccessary, but Bella and Harley love their blankets, and it makes them feel safe when they go in the car, or to someone elses house.

I don't know if anyone has mentioned this yet or not, but a book on first aid for dogs can come in handy....I read thru the whole thing just to see what the various symptoms and treatments were.  Fortunately haven't ever needed to use it...knock on wood.  But it's nice to know you have a quick reference, just in case. 

When I get home, I'll put the title of the one I bought on here.   Oh and if you go to amazon.com or bn.com (barnes and noble), and click on link for used/out of print books, can save some bucks and the book may even be brand new surplus.  Always cool to save $, more for toys and stuff.   :D

I always check with the borders teamed with amazon.com for all of my books. I have purchased several new books at a fraction of the book store price. And the delivery has always been within 2-3 days. I love that site. It is probably the same as barnes and nobles teamed with amazon.

I would buy more food dishes, we feed Ruby 2x's a day and its much easier to have a couple of sets. Also, did you get a carrier? We use ours for taking her everywhere...the vet, petstore, outings, etc.

This doesn't really qualify as an item to get, but the Petedge.com catalog has got me in a lot of trouble....er, given me a lot of ideas of things she needs.
