Every livestock owner should have an emergency kit that contains items that respond to emergency situations. Contents of the emergency kit do not replace the assistance of your veterinarian, but may help stabilize conditions in caring for your animals.
Flexible cohesive wrap (several rolls of Vet wrap)
Tourniquet to stop blood flow for serious wound (shoe lace, rubber tubing)
Digital or vet thermometer with lanyard and alligator clip
Antiseptic wound cleaner (Betadine, etc.)
Antiseptic ointment (Corona, Bag Balm, Vaseline, etc.)
Roll of paper towels or paper ship towels, cloth towels
Absorbent pads (several sizes of gauze diapers, sanitary napkins, leg cottons)
Syringes, several sizes (both to extract fluid as well as syringes to administer injections)
Sedative (Bute, Ace - get this from your veterinarian) or powdered aspirin
Zip-lock bags to organize the contents of your first aid kit
Zip-ties that can be used to make emergency repairs to ropes or halters
The telephone number of your veterinarian clinic
All of these should be placed in a sealable container such as bucket with lid, plastic storage container with lid, or a canvas duffel bag. The container should be easily stored, and be easily carried to the emergency site.
