what medicines do you keep on hand?

what is the stuff that you keep "for in case."

on another thread, someone mentioned benadryl for allergic reactions which i keep, too. i love "nfz puffer" (.2% nitrofurazone) a topical powder which is good for dog bites, cuts as well as eye and ear infections.

or maybe that's more of a country thing, knowing that you'll come back and be a loyal customer the better service they provide so they don't mind not making money off you everytime? since their pool of customers is more limited, getting return ones is maybe more important?

i wish more people had access to feed stores. i have one friend in the city who lives somewhat near one and has started going there more often. like anything, some people are dumb, but most workers/owners are very aware about animals and also in an across the board way, from horses to dogs type way....

who gets their vaccines from the feedstore?

i live in a low income rural area and i think if i can get my neighbors interested in doing things like this maybe we can put a dent in the parvo deaths around here. i think each set of shots is like four bucks. most people around here have probably given shots to their farm animals but may have not...

i think all dogs are different. i raise and slaughter my own food. some of my dogs love the extras but one's tummy can't take it. i only feed her cooked food. the rest, they lick their lips when i say the word rooster. :thumbsup:
just like anything in life, one size doesn't fit all.

i did home care when my pup got parvo (it's rampant in our area.) hydrating her sq among other ways is the only thing that saved her life. if you happen to live more rurally as i do without easy access to a vet (either due to distance or economics or both) sometimes feed stores can be a wealth of in...

hi to you both and thanks for hearing me about how it is here. sometimes it is hard to talk with animal lovers about it because where they live and their resources are just so different that it is hard to strategize with them as allies because even i wind up alientated. :thumbsup:
