Exclamation Chi's Medical Supply Kit - Please READ Updated 4/12/2012

I don't know if there is a sticky of this somewhere, I imagine there is.... but incase there isn't, I thought this should be one.


I HAVE FOUND SOME NEW INFORMATION THAT WORRIES ME A BIT. PLEASE DO YOUR OWN HOMEWORK BEFORE ADMINISTERING ANYTHING. KAOPECTATE, PEPTO BISMOL AND ASPIRIN (EVEN BUFFERED) COULD POTENTIALLY HARM YOUR CHI.

Here is a new link to check out due to the above warning...
Can You Give a Dog or Cat Aspirin?

Things You should have in your Chi's Medicine Supply Kit!

Adhesive Tape
Eye Wash
Pepto -Bismol
Aspirin Buffered (ascriptin)
Robitussin
Bandage Scissors
4 x 4 gauze pads
Sharp Scissors
Benadryl (antihistamine)
Rolled gauze
Sterile Dressing
Betadine antiseptic
Hydrogen Peroxide 3%
Syringes 1cc & 5cc
Blood Stop powder
Kaopectate
Thermometer
Cotton Balls
K-Y Jelly
Triple Antibiotic Ointment
Cotton (Rolled)
Mineral Oil
Tweezers
Cotton swabs (Q-tips)
Nutri-Cal
Vet Wrap
Dramamine
Pedialyte
Worm Medicine
Ear cleaner
Pet Tonic

ETA... I removed flea spray from the list. Most flea sprays are dangerous and shouldnt be used. You can simply use dish detergent and it will kill fleas. There are also natural flea killing remedies you can use. Google it

How much to give your Chi -

Aspirin (buffered) Relieves pain reduces inflammation up to 5 mg/lb every 12 hours
Benedryl Relieves itching/ allergies up to 2 mg/lb every 8 hours
Dramamine Relieves car sickness motion sickness up to 4 mg/lb every 8 hours
Hydrogen Peroxide 3% Induces vomiting after ingesting poison 5 ml by mouth every 10 min.
Di-Gel liquid An anti-gas antacid up to 4 Tbsp. every 8 hours
Kaopectate Controls diarrhea up to 1 mg/lb every 6 hours
Mineral Oil Relieves constipation up to 4 Tbsp. per day
Pepto -Bismal Relieves gas, vomiting & diarrhea 1 tsp / 5 lb. every 6 hours
Robitussin Soothes Kennel cough 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. every 4 hours

Tylenol (or any Acetaminophen) should NEVER be given to any dog or cat NEVER

I have given Chico Pepto Bismal before. He was having a tummy ache and I just poured a little bit in a cup and stuck my finger in it. He licked it right off and it worked!!

This is very good information! Thanks for posting!! Sometimes stuff happens in the middle of the night, on a weekend when the vets not open, etc. and it's good to know dosages on some of the simple stuff like benadryl, pepto, kaopectate, etc. until you can get them into the vet.

Thanks!

What I meant by "when he was younger" is that when I first got him and I was full of questions etc, I was clueless as to what to do for him in the event of something happening. Like when he had his first shots and I was up most of the night with him, because I was scared to death something was wrong! I didn't know what to give him for the pain. etc. Now though, I am prepared!
