WHAT TO HAVE IN YOUR FIRST-AID KIT


First-Aid Kits can be as elaborate or basic as you would like. Below is a list of essential items to have in your kit.

  1. Sharp scissors
  2. Thermometer
  3. Antiseptic solution and scrub (eg Betadine)
  4. Cotton wool
  5. Gauze pads or swabs
  6. Latex gloves
  7. Saline solution (for irrigation/cleaning)
  8. Elastoplast or some other type of adhesive bandage

KEEP YOUR VET'S CONTACT DETAILS WRITTEN ON THE FIRST AID-BOX.

It is important to prepare your first-aid kit well in advance of an actual emergency and keep it in a clean, dry place where it is readily accessible. It is also a good idea to keep a first-aid kit in your float or truck in case you encounter any problems when away from home.
