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

~Vet wrap
~thermometer (plastic not glass)
~polysporin
~peroxide (disinfecting and encouraging vomit should chocolate or the like be ingested)
~styptic
~maybe metacam?
~critical care (carnivore)
~syringes
~pedialyte

Sooo what do you guys have in your first aid kits? What's essential?



Basic first-aid supplies

  • Absorbent gauze pads
  • Adhesive tape
  • Antiseptic wipes, lotion, powder or spray
  • Blanket (a foil emergency blanket)
  • Cotton balls or swabs
  • Gauze rolls
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomitingdo this only when directed by a veterinarian or a poison-control expert)
  • Ice pack
  • Non-latex disposable gloves
  • Petroleum jelly (to lubricate the thermometer)
  • Rectal thermometer (your pet's temperature should not rise above 103F or fall below 100F)
  • Scissors (with blunt ends)
  • Sterile non-stick gauze pads for bandages
  • Sterile saline solution (sold at pharmacies)
  • Tweezers
  • A pillowcase to confine your cat for treatment
  • A pet carrier
