Thread: First Aid Kit?

  1. #1

    Default First Aid Kit?

    I've been trying to get a first aid kit ready - and I wondered, can you buy a first aid kit for rabbits with everything in as they do for dogs and cats?

    If not -
    Ive got clippers, two syringes and metacam
    They're two different size syringes

    Ive seen the thread about the first aid kit but im usless with names to order things so wondered if anyone had the link to a first aid kit or could kindly send me the links to the other stuff I'll need in my kit?

    Syringe food
    Probiotic
    F10 insect and wound sprat
    Hibiscrub
    Eye wash
    Silver nitrate pencil
    Tweezers, scissors, nail clippers
    Cotton wool, sterile bandages
    Towel/blanket
    Pet carrier
    Phone number for vet & emergency vet

    Thankyou
    Ive got cotten wool pads and the ear buds in my kit but if I need the balls aswell will get those, though for cleaning around a wound or such I think they'd all do the same?

    I need to get a provobotic, an insext and wound spray and an eye wash but im unsure of what brand to get? Ive seen the Johnson brand but im unsure so if anyone knows

    And also the sterile bandages and where to find them

    We were told the best insect spray is F10 so I got that lol my vets sells it. I haven't got an eye wash but she said you could just use water.

    I bought bandages from asda as they would only be used until I got to the vet

    Will check if my vet sells the spray and a probotic in the same brand.

    Im assuming the bandages are like the roll that you could wrap around say their leg or body so will look out for those top, thanks

    The F10 insect/wound spray can actually be used to help get rid of maggots in a fly strike case, you can spray the rabbit and let it start working while on route to the vet. AFAIK none of the other insect sprays can do this.

    Probiotic wise I prefer Avipro or Biolapis.

    Will definitely find the F10 spray then if it can be used as a wound spray and as a fly strike case while going to the vets

    I think ive seen Biolapis sachets that would be easier to fit in a first aid kit than say a pot, thanks
