    … this is a kit FOR the dog right? Not a human kit the dog carries,right?

    Because I like the ITS stuff, but they DID NOT consult a vet on this!! This is a bad dog kit.

    Hydrogen peroxide spray? Eh, better for dogs than humans but not nearly enough. Just use drinking water.

    A vet kit with sheers but only one vet wrap?

    No stapler? Dog hide is super thick and the injuries I’ve seen have needed staplers just to get to a vet. My vet got me a decent stapler and explained how important it is.

    No eye cup? Could have saved space and cost in this kit by just throwing an Olayes in.

    … idk, maybe they put some more thought in than I’m seeing. But it sure doesn’t seem like went over this with a couple vets/techs.

      Kyle, I’m sorry you don’t feel the kit is good, we definitely did a lot of research and consulted not only a Vet, but K-9 handlers as well. Are you a Veterinarian?

      Hydrogen Peroxide spray is to induce vomiting and to do double duty as a secondary option for antiseptic. It’s pretty easy to add in an additional vet wrap if you feel it warrants it. We were not only looking at adding quality components when this kit was created, but also keeping in mind its size and price.

      A stapler is definitely a good addition, as well as a staple remover. Not sure if your vet mentioned it, but carrying a remover is a good idea if you’re carrying the stapler.

      We elected not to include an eye cup, however, one could be created from the materials in this kit. None of those we consulted recommended an eye cup.

      Thanks for your comments,

        I shouldn’t have written “bad”.

        The peroxide a vomit inducing makes sense and will also concede on that! As an antiseptic still nah. As to whether you could get many dogs to willfully swallow peroxide, IDK man.

        You had your sources specifically mention no eye cup or none mentioned it at all? When I researched this a lot was up to what your dog would tolerate. The last eye issue I had with a dog was removing an entire cat claw outer that she was pawing at badly.

        I’m still seeing a lot of gauze and not enough vet wrap, seems like a single olayes could remove 5 things from this kit. I’d even consider individual packets of neomycin/polymyxin drops if eye cup is a no-go, not sure if those are that common but would be a good reason to buy a kit vs build one.

        Still not the kit I’m crazy about, but I was being a jerk, my bad.

    Is there a good first aid kit for dogs on the market? I’ve been looking for one, just to take hiking, and I’ll be damned if there’s much out there that I’ve been able to find–At least, that went past having a couple of band-aids and some other BS. Consumer-grade ain’t the way to go.

    Also missing from this is any form of bite restraint, unless you’re supposed to Ace bandage the dog’s muzzle…

    • Bryan Black says:

      Hi Kirk, there’s a good one just above :) What is it that you’re looking for in a dog kit that’s not included with ours or available from the same store product page as an add on? We have QuikClot Gauze Pads, SAM Splints and Cold Packs to include as additions if desired.

      You can use the Ace Bandage to wrap a dog’s muzzle, however when muzzling, you need to be careful of overheating, as a dog’s way of cooling is to pant and they can’t do that when muzzled too tightly.

      The muzzle is definitely an important consideration to add and we’ve been on the hunt for one that works well. It’s actually something we’re in development with.
