Adventure Medical Kits Adventure Dog Series Me & My Dog First Aid Kit $49.99
- Do you need one?
This is a fine first aid kit with basic supplies for a variety of human and canine supplies. While designed for outdoor use, this is a fine kit for home, pack, or automobile. Adventure Medical Kids offers four canine kits. This is the only one labeled for human and dog use. Of course, most first aid supplies are not species-specific. The three other kids include two what are smaller and less expensive and one selling for more than $100. I think this is the best value kit, particularly when paired with the add-on items shown at the bottom of the post.
Besides the outer nylon pack, all the supplies are packed into a waterproof zip-lock bag so everything stays dry until needed.
Complete enough for most common emergencies
Maybe you could assemble the supplies for less money. But not the highly-functional packaging
This review and recommendation are the result of years of testing first aid and truma kits, recently looking for a kit suitable for a dog and its human companion.
This is the one, a combination of well-chosen contents and value pricing.
I have been an Adventure Medical Kits customer for almost as long as they have been in business. The company builds a variety of general and specialized first aid kits created with the outdoors in mind. I like them all.
Christy Caplan recently posted about the problem of not having a complete dog first aid kit when you need one.
As a former EMT who is married to a 911 EMT, I have used many first aid kits. Often, I have purchased a ready-made kit because they are generally complete and often come in a useful carrying container, such as this one.
Created for the outdoor enthusiast enjoying nature with their canine companion faithfully by their side, the Adventure Dog Series Medical Kit by Adventure Medical, packs emergency supplies in case something happens to their fuzzy friend or themselves in the wild.
There are four dog first aid kits in the series, two less expensive and less complete than this kit and a fourth that is more expansive. This is the only “Me & My Dog” kit presently available. It provides comprehensive first aid solutions to keep both you and your four-legged hiking buddy safe on all your adventures together.
If you have to crack open this dog first aid kit in the field, that is a sign you need an emergency vet or hospital emergency department. Please head home ASAP.
This $49.99 kit measures approximately 7.5 x 3.5 x 5.3 inches and weighs 1.47 pounds.
