Not sure if this is in the right section or not, feel free to move if needed!

What do you keep on hand for your pets(natural or traditional)? What do you use these things for? Also, any home remedies that you have found useful for certain issues?

Thought it would be interesting to see what people keep in stock for their furry ones!

I have a long list: Nolvasan flush for wounds, calm coat for hot spots, bug bites or loss of hair, silver sulfadiazine cream for wounds once they are cleans.

Cephalexin 500 mg. tramadol, Metacam, these are items I always have on hand for, girl fights in the house, if my finger gets bit trying to break them up, and pain and anti- imflammatory medicines.

pepto bismol tabs, pepcid, and alprazolam (haven't used it recently) this is for Leo in case he needs to go to the vet. I have a basket of wraps, bandages etc. for emergency's I'm prepared for anything..........................................

I have immodium for Chelsy (haven't needed any in a long time), kaopectate for Rocky (also haven't needed in a long time), chloraxedine spray, betadine spray, (both of those for cleaning hot spots and assorted boo boo's - thanks Danemama!!), and baby wipes for general ear cleaning,paw cleaning, and fuzzy butt cleaning. Advantix is on hand but I try not to use it more then once or twice a year.

As a general rule there isn't much in the way of sores or wounds that my dogs get anymore. Chelsy is on permanent Tramadol and Metacam now but that's an old age thing.

Back when I had girl dogs that got in fights we had a LOT more medicine on hand!

I think you and I have the same medicine cabinet.... I get all of my first aid goodies from calvetsuppy.com I've learned to keep them around. I have more for the pets than I do for myself. For me? Advil and that's about it.

The "L" was dropped in "supply." Try:

Cal Vet Supply - your source for Antibiotics, Frontline, Syringes and Veterinary Supplies

The only thing I have to add is Gas-X. If you catch your dog in the first stages of bloat, it will buy a little time while rushing to the vet.
That is very good to know. Bridget had bloat before. Took her to the vet to get checked out and the vet confirmed that she had bloat. Without the money to pay for the treatment we did what we could do with the money we did have. Bridget recovered and all was well again.

Hey, hydrogen peroxide is a life saver. It has saved me many a late night emergency call if owners have it on hand. (I'm one of the few vets that still is on call for emergencies).

When it is done fizzing it is just water and oxygen so is not harmful. Unlike syrup of ipecac which, if it doesn't cause your dog to vomit is toxic so now you have two problems.

Hydrogen peroxide is good for cleaning wounds initially as well.

Peptobismal is another good one to have on hand for the odd dietary indiscretion.
