    Since Liam had issues throwing up as a puppy, I am well stocked on the Pepcid AC thank goodness!

    I have a great kit I got from Orvis. But I plan to add Cerenia and Benadryl, too!

    I have a couple of first aid kits for the dogs. The one I use the least is a normal human First Aid Kit that I've added and removed stuff from (after I did the dog first aid course). Then I have the 'Deska's skin' kit, which was the kit I used the most - cortisone creams, pads (the make-up remover round pads are better than cotton swabs), antiseptic, saline, wraps etc. I had a little IBD/pancreatitis kit for Tully but now I've found mashed potato works better than all the herbs and OTC remedies I had.

    With all my health issues one really useful thing is 'what to do' lists for my pets. So what to do 'in case of diarrhea', 'eating the wrong thing', 'ant bite' (Tully is allergic), hayfever/snorting, Katkat vomits, cats get out etc. I also have a list with the feeding regime and the medication regime, and a list of where to find the pet stuff (esp the cats). Got them all on the side of my fridge, with the emergency First Aid check lists I got from my course, so if anyone needs to take my pets the instructions are readily accessible.

    That is a great idea to have everything on the fridge in case of emergency for someone else to have access to! I will definitely do that too!
