ehhhh...trying to cut down on the spam. i already average 200ish legitimate email messages daily. thanks for the link...i've seen that kit before, and i wonder if it could be put together for less than $85. might have to research that a bit.

alright, i was able to compile a shopping list to make this cheaper(like, with shipping this cost $70). use an old bag you might have lying around the house:
6.83 x2 - Amazon.com: Canine Hardware Hydro Bowl Medium, 5 Cup: Pet Supplies
19.98 - Amazon.com: Berkey GENERIC Sport Water Purification Bottle 22 oz.: Sports & Outdoors
22.30 - Amazon.com: Outdoor RX Pet First Aid Kit with Bag: Sports & Outdoors
as low as $4 - Amazon.com: Buying Choices: Pet First Aid: Cats & Dogs
poop bags $6 at walmart, unless you keep them around regularly.
decal - free from spca - ASPCA | What would happen to your pet in an emergency?
record keeper - just use a small spiral notebook OR 3.99 - My Dog's Health and I.D. Records Passport - Summer PETssentials - Dog - PetSmart
luggage tag - unnecessary as the dog is too big for that little cardboard carrier


the ONLY thing i couldn't add in here was food, but wouldn't you rather have the dog eating his normal food instead of the shelf-stable stuff they use? i've never seen shelf-stable dog food that didn't have corn as the first ingredient. i think this is the brand they use: Sunset Survival & First Aid :: Pet Survival :: Emergency Dog Food

also, the water bottle i listed filters out all solid and pathogenic material (so it's good to have in the car, anyway, for you as well as your dog). all you have to do is fill it with any nasty, dirty water and it renders it safe to drink. i actually keep two in my house and one in my car for emergencies.

Thanks for the links,
as for the food though the shelf stable is why it lasts for whenever the emergency happens to occur, it may not be great but at least she'd have food if we get stranded. For emergencies like getting stuck i'm more worried about the food not being expired than the exact quality and unfortunately crap food lasts longer expiration wise than good food.

that's fair, and i won't fault you on that thought process. however, there's another thing to consider: the amount of food you get in that kit would barely feed your dog one meal. each "meal" is 8 oz. i'd be tempted to can my own dog food instead of buying a corn based kibble.

i can counter that with, if you're stranded you don't generally get to eat average full proportions.

I was just posting the kit to those that may be interested and as a reminder it's not bad to have one.....

oh, i understand. i just figured i'd offer alternatives. i've done the "prepping" thing for awhile, and i always try to find cheaper options than premade kits. i apologize if i stepped on any toes. i get a little hyper about this sometimes.

You are going to be able to build on your own a far better and more cost effective kit. To assemble a decent kit you will have to spend more but will have a far better kit in the long run. I have emergency kits in my horse barn, house, horse trailer and truck. The truck and house kits are geared human/canine.

My vehicle kits include the Datrix emergency water as it has a 10 year shelf life. You can buy a three day supply for $7.50 on Amazon or a case for $24. I put freeze dried raw in the kits that has a shelf life of over a year. My dogs eat Honest Kitchen once daily so no change in diet if the need arises. I include a small can of pumpkin as well in the kit. Adding pumpkin is always a good idea during stressful situations.

Bowls: I stock supplies in the plastic lock – lid containers, toss in some zip locks to transfer supplies and you have instant food and water bowls.

The best pre-assembled FAK I have found are made by Adventure Medical Kits, they are not cheap but very well thought out. Supplement those with Gas-X, oral syringes, hydrogen peroxide—watch the expire date and replace once it has been opened, Betadine, a muzzle, vet wraps, gauze and padding, blood stopping materials and other meds after talking to your vet. I am not going to list everything I carry as that is between me and my vet, as it should be. Don't include anything you are not trained to use! Try to attend a good emergency first aid class for dogs. Check with working dog clubs in your area. REI and most sporting goods stores carry decent dog First Aid books. If you decide to build your own FAK, medical supply stores, often next to hospitals, carry a good supply of bandaging material, bandage shears and other instruments.

Kits are the way to go as if something happens time can be of the essence and you need everything assembled in one place.

Extra collars and leashes for each dog should be included as well as a harness for an injured dog and a good flashlight with lithium batteries. I would also include a large bath towel for assisting in moving an injured dog.

Here is a very good link to print out and include in your kit.
