    Re: Doggy First Aid?

    Of course i have a lab and getting food anytime into him is never a problem![/QUOTE]

    LOL! I've got two Retrievers and I totally understand! I feed all my dogs twice a day and if you watch them eat...its like it's the only meal theyve ever had. I even had to order some bowls to slow them down while eating. Bless those healthy eaters!

    That sounds like a good idea. Gonna make sure there is some in my kit.

    Not sure about the big meal before a hunt though. I usually feed a dog less in the morning before a hunt and more for the evening meal. I don't want to work them too hard on a full stomach.
    To warm barrels and cold noses

    i will give my dog a smaller meal before a hunt and i soak it in water. I heard it helps a dog not get bloat.

    "Viaderm KC" - ointment to apply to "hotspots", raw, festering, open sores that some breeds, (especially long-haired water dogs), can get, usually around the neck area.

    All of the above available at pharmacies, inexpensive.
    Activated Carbon can be had in capsule form and has saved my friends dog after it had eaten something really nasty.
    They'll never end hunting...may make it illegal, but they'll never really kill that way of life!
