Something I would have thought of, but may have forgotten in the truck. Won’t forget.
With the season in full swing, a little reminder:
This little kit won’t take up much weight or space but it could possibly save your dog’s life. Do your best hunting buddy a favor and carry it every time you get far enough from your truck you wouldn’t want to carry him all the way back.

Benadryl or other antihistamine: reduces windpipe swelling from snakebite or insect sting
Duct tape: all-around bandage, emergency boot
Triple antibiotic ointment: prevent infection in wound
EMT Gel: stops most bleeding, speeds healing
Hemostats: pull porcupine quills, foreign objects from wounds and nostrils
