I have and have needed on numerous occaisions a first aid kit (home made) for my rabbits-it's come in handy more times then I can count. When rabbits get sick it's always an emergency and it is sometimes a miracle to get them through the night to the vet office-a first aid kit is needed for sure.
I realized a needed one when I found that seed pod in Mikey's eye the other day-I had to go the bunny first aid kit and steal
I was thinking
~thermometer (plastic not glass)
~peroxide (disinfecting and encouraging vomit should chocolate or the like be ingested)
~critical care (carnivore)
~pedialyte Sooo what do you guys have in your first aid kits? What's essential?
For me, in my first aid kits are the essentials, pretty much the same as yours but with bandages, antiseptic, cleaning materials etc.
