Whether pheasant numbers are up or down, you and your dog are going to be hitting the fields. What’s the silver lining in a down year? You’ll have an excuse to spend even extra time outside with friends and family searching for those elusive ringnecks.
The drawback from spending more time afield are more chances for your bird dog to hit fences, find porcupines, step on cattle guards and run into any other worst-case-scenarios you can think of. Accidents happen, and increased hunting time increases the risk of these accidents taking place. You can’t prevent them (no one likes a “helicopter handler”) but you can be prepared for them.
The easiest and most logical action you can take is to always have a canine first aid kit in your truck. Anywhere your dog goes, so should this kit; and I highly recommend Creative Pet Products’ Sporting Dog Premium First Aid Kit, available from Pheasants Forever.
Inside you’ll find:
- First Aid Instructional Booklet
- Skin Staple Gun
- Cold Pack
- Hydrogen Peroxide
- Eye Wash
- 2” Flexible Wrap
- Alcohol Prep Pads
- Gauze Pads
- Iodine & Saline Solution
- Forceps, Scissors & Syringe
- AND MORE
This is the most comprehensive “does it all” dog first aid kit I’ve found, it travels well and doesn’t skip out on anything important. I can’t put a dollar figure on keeping my dog alive and well, and I’m guessing you can’t either.
