This 1st Aid kit designed for your pet and comes in a zipped bag to keep everything together. I looked at many 1st Aid kits to stock on our website and found they contained many items that will not be useful, for e.g safety pins, triangular bandages (to make an arm sling), alcohol wipes. I have therefore sourced eveything separatley, using my knowledge as an Intensive care Sister to put together a useful 1st aid kit.
The items bought separately would cost £26.34 - we have put them together in the pack for £19.95
Tick remover- an absolute must have for all dog owners. Ticks need removing quickly and safely to minimise the risk of diseases such as Lymes disease.
Sterile swabs- 10cm x 10cm x 5 can be used to dress wounds
Ambulance dressing- these are a pad with a bandage attached and are ideal for a wound that is bleeding, simply unwrap the dressing, apply the pad and wind the bandage around to stop bleeding
Cohesive bandage x2- 5cm x 4.5m. This bandage is useful for all sorts of things and an absolute must in a 1st aid kit. It is a bandage that is stretchy so can be used to apply pressure to a wound that will not stop bleeding, simply put some gauze or the ambulance dressing on and wrap it around the area to stem the flow of blood. It can also be used to cover a wound until you get to the vets, or to hold a dressing in place as it sticks to itself but not the dog. We also use it as padding on a muzzle if needed.
It tears easily- no scissors needed. You will get 2 random coloured bandages.
Non sterile swabs- 7.5cm x 7.5cm -100 swabs ideal for soaking in saline or diluted hibiscrub and and using to clean a wound as they will not leave fibres behind. Can also be used with saline to clean an eye area.
Crinx conforming bandage-x2 5cm x 4m These are lightweight bandages ideal for hold a dressing in place, or used for "happy tail", or to bandage ears to their head if they have a bleeding injury on the tip. These are lightweight and are not as tight as the Cohesive bandages.
Micropore Tape 2.5cm x 9.1m- tape is sueful in any 1st aid kit. Micropore is hypoallergenic and easy to tear- so no scissors needed.
2 pairs gloves- size large
Kit comes in a Black zipped bag with compartments to keep everything easy to find. The bag is ideal to be stored in the car or at home.
