Most of the injuries that dogs will sustain are cuts, burns or injuries to bones.
Basic First Aid Kit
Large and small sterile bandages or cloth. The larger the dog the larger the bandages should be. The bandages should not be the adhesive kind as this will not work with dogs. Sterile pads or gauze. Again, depending on the size of the dog there will be some different sizes required. Large blanket or towel depending on the size of the dog. Bottled water. This can be used for flushing out wounds or for cooling the dog if heat stroke or shock is an issue.
Basic First Aid
The basics for most issues with regards to dog emergency first aid are very similar. Never apply any crèmes or burn treatments to a burn unless under the direction of a veterinarian.
Move the dog to the shade or keep in a cool and shady location. Dogs that are prone to heat stroke, which includes all short or pug nosed dogs, should be closely monitored during hot summer months. Over heating can easily occur if the dog is running or playing in the heat of the day.
Immediately move the dog to the shade or into an air-conditioned area. Use a cold cloth and gently sponge the dog to provide additional cooling. Try to give the dog small amounts of cool water.
