First Aid Kit

So I know in another thread someone was asking what to put in a first aid kit for your pet and I had to share mine.

I actually bought this at Walmart (sometimes you just gotta love that place)
for $20.00, and it is great.
It includes a razor (to shave the wounded area) rubber gloves,eye wash,surgical prep pads, iodine pads, self-adhesive wound wrap,sterile wound pads, a splinter remover (big needle) tweezers, scissors, emergency blanket, cotton balls,q-tips, cold compress, AND an instruction manual with tons of life saving techniques!
I took some pics for y'all of course :

Plus it has lots of space inside so you can add more to it.
Here it is all ready to go:

Very cool, I usually just raid hubby's first aid pack from the ski patrol but it would be very handy to have everything in the same place.

That's awesome, I never really thought about a pet first aid kit, but it is something that everyone should invest in, especially that manual.

Hmmm. That's a great idea! I'll have to make a trip to Wally-world soon.

I keep my ski patrol bum bag in my car in case things happen. I could use a few more dog oriented things though..
