    I have an emergency kit in the truck that doubles as an "I think I'll camp here for a couple of days" kit. In the kit is a daypack that I put essentials in for day hikes. I'd like to add a doggy first aid kit to the people first aid kit. I could just combine them I guess, but my OCD wants to keep things neat. Here's what I have so far:

    Disposable shavers (to make it easier to clean/bandage wounds)
    Benadryl (for bug bites-vet says 2 pills for 60 lb. dog)
    Immodium (for Diarrhea, who wants that in the back of the Tahoe?)
    Self-sticking wrap "vet wrap" and gauze
    Antibiotic ointment
    tweezers
    Acepromazine (doggie valium) from vet
    Superglue (to close minor lacerations)

    I don't have anything for snakebites yet, most of our hikes are in the desert

    What else am I missing?

    Probably not what you had in mind, but I used to keep a packet of critter formula and a bottle of water along with a syringe in my car...just in case I discovered an orphan ;)

    Don't forget the Hydrogen Peroxide. LE K9 units carry it as an ematic(sp) makes the dog puke. Useful if they injest some type of poison.
