Emergency List of Medication

Is there a way to put a list together of medicines to keep at your house incase of emergency. For sometimes ones dog / cat can become sick and the Vet is already closed or unavailable (out on call). Just things to keep if a bee stung them and they swell up, they get a fever, pain in neck mussle, nausia....etc.

There must be something one can keep to help your loved animal in times when you can' t get ahold of a Vet or if you are far out.

Help will be much appreciated.

Dear Nads

In a real emergency you need to see a vet ASAP. Practices have to be on call for clients, so make sure you have a clinic or emergency number on your phone. Most of the real drugs are prescription only and not a good idea to keep them for just in case.

The information provided does not constitute a diagnosis of your condition. You should consult a medical practitioner or other appropriate health care professional for a physical exmanication, diagnosis and formal advice.

If you can get your vet to prescribe a dose or two for your dog, get cortisone tablets to use in the case of anaphylaxis - one of my animals is allergic to beesting so I need to keep this handy and it works so well to reduce the choking cause by swelling..

Thanks guys it really helps alot. One doesn' t always want to go to the Vet if you see it' s not urgent yet or sometimes you see it' s urgent then the Vet is either not available and out on call.
Thanks again!!!

I always have disinfectant around, some Bactroban ointment, diarrhoea mix (try to get a kaolin/pectin one, and shake WELL before using), and valerian in case of stress (one is terrified of fireworks/thunder). Minor tummy upsets quite often respond to a bit of Behoedmiddel... can' t think of what else!

My ani-medi-kit contains Allergex (check with your vet first), Laxapet, Nutristim and that blue wound spray (can' t think of the name now).
