    Post Canine Medicine Chest

    I recently picked up the Australian edition of Dogs For Dummies by Dr Richard Lawrence and Gina Spadafori (a very good and highly recommended book, by the way), and noticed a list of items to go in your 'canine medicine chest'. Here's the list:

    • Adhesive tape
    • Benadryl cough mixture
    • Betadine antiseptic
    • Buffered aspirin
    • Cotton swabs, balls and rolls
    • Eye wash
    • Forceps or tweezers
    • Stypic pencil
    • Scissors
    • Sterile gauze, both rolls and pads
    • Syringe with the needle removed (for giving liquid medication)
    • Crystal washing soda such as Lectric Sodad
    • Thermometer
    • Tranquilizers for travel or thundery nights if prescribed by your vet
    • Vet Wrap padded bandages
    • Water-based lubricating jelly, such as K-Y
    • Any prescription medications


    I thought this might be useful to anyone wondering - it definitely was to me!

    You can give Benadryl for canine cough.
    If doesn't settle after a few days then that's when you have a vet check in-case of secondary infection, then you may need a course of AB.
    Usually does settle. Manuka honey is also good for CC and wounds that are slow in healing.
    Another good one is Calendula tea. it's good for skin irritations, it has as anti inflammation and anti bacterial components.

    Benadryl is also used for allergy reactions.

    Tranquilisers
    I love cooking but I love eating even more.

    Some dogs with anxiety or travel nervousness have things like Clomicalm prescribed to them. I suppose they've added it as a sort of reminder to keep them all in one place maybe?
