I wouldnt use flea spray. You can use dawn dish detergent and it is just as effective. Some of those flea sprays are seriously dangerous. I am going to remove that from the list ;-)

I am assuming pet tonic is maybe "Rescue Remedy"? if not then I have know idea?

"Dramamine" is something people take when they get car or motion sickness. You can buy it over the counter at any pharmacy, etc...

"Betadine antiseptic" Is something that you can clean minor wounds with. You can also get this at a pharmacy.

Betadine is iodine did an enjoin person write te original lit coz you can't get iodine here anymore!!

Rather than using a medicinal tablet there are scullcap and valerian herbs which work for travel Sickness/anxietys etc Dorwest

Our boy had to have the Benadryl (children's dye free formula) as he sometimes got outdoor allergies or the sneezies. Can also help if they get an allergic reaction to something-although he "brought" me poison ivy (oil was on his coat) twice but it certainly did not affect him! haha!

hydrogen peroxide also works like an emetic for dogs. (makes them throw up) Macy ate a cherry pit when she was little, and the animal poison control had me give her hydrogen peroxide to make her throw it up.

since chis are so tiny, you should keep popsiclle sticks. You can buy them in a craft store, or as tounge depressers if your chi has an accident and breaks a leg, popsicle sticks are a good makeshift splint, and wrap the leg and the sticks in that self adhesive gause stuff it will stabilize the injury until you can get to the vet.

keep baking soda to help with bee stings

I keep a small vial of everclear (190 proof grain alcohol) instead of betadine, because I don't want staining all over the house.

Keep sandwich or snack bags in there to pick up vomit/feces in case the vet wants to check it.

battery operated nosehair trimmers are a lifesaver, espcially if you've got a long hair chi. the nosehair trimmer can safely get in between the dogs toes. This is helpful if the dog gets into gum or gets foot infections.

don't forget to put latex/neoprene gloves in there for you! For example, you don't want to get poison ivy or skunk oil or venom on you, but you might need to deal with your dog if he gets into that kind of stuff.

Oh, I was also thinking you might want to get a soft cloth muzzle. Dogs get bitey when they are really hurt sometimes, and it is just a safety precaution between you and the dog. Hopefully you'll never have to take it out of the kit, but it's better to have it in case you need to restrain an injured and panicky dog.
