EMT Spray, the "first Aid Kin in a bottle." EMT Spray, like EMT Gel, contains collagen protein that speeds healing. It reduces pain, itching, bleedign and protects the wound. It contains Bitrex, a bitter agent, to deter gitting and licking of wounds. The pump sprayer makes application clean and easy.

I took a look at this product, but chose to stay with the gel. I've bought the "liquid bandage" for my kids and it works pretty well, but I questioned how well the EMT spray would work with fur all around the wound. The gel is nice because it is thick and sticky to stay in place. Price wise, it was also more cost effective for me to go with the gel.

Does the gel have the bitter agent to keep the dog from licking? When ever my dog gets scratched up he seems to lick it all the time. Is this good for a dog to lick it cuts or bad?

I'm no vet, but a dog licking it's wounds is it's way of cleaning the wound. With the amount of bacteria and such in our mouth, much less a dogs with what it does with it's tongue, I would have to say no it's not a good thing. I don't know if the gel has a bitter agent in it or not either, but my dog licked it a couple of times and doesn't any more when I put it on. I also reinforced the "no licking" by telling her no when I saw her making the motion to do it.

i'm not sure if the gel has a bitter tast to it but the sray has bitrex witch is very bitter and heals wounds so your dog probably wont lick the sray i do like the gel for the fact you can cake it on and it keeps dirt and grass out but the more i read up on this spray it sounds pretty good i'll put a bottle in my dogs first aid kit.

...good hunting...

Dustin bring up a good point... what else should you carry in your dogs first aid kit?

Do most of you carry a dog first aid kit?

There is nothing that can ruin a good pheasant hunting trip more then a dog getting injured. I have been carring some antibiotic ointment for cutt and a few asprin for my older dog who gets a bit sore. What else should I have in the bag? Do you actually carry some stitching tools etc?

Regards,

I carry a first aid kit with me for the dog. I have aspirin, tweeazers, needle, thread, gauze pads, triple antibiotic ointment, EMT gel, vet wrap and a couple of other things that I can't remember. I picked up a basic kit from Foster and Smith when I was up at their warehouse store last year and have just added a couple of items. I have used it several times and highly recommend one for anybody that hunts with a dog.

Dustin,

What type of thread do you carry? Is it just standard thread or do they make somthing special for stitches and where do you get it? My dog went throug a fence on a weekend in Iowa and we were in the middle of no where.

I am not sure if I could do the stitch thing however.

Regards,

Jon B.

I carry a first aid kit for my dog and one for me, in my vest every time I go in the field. I have forcips ( Pulling quills) and scissors, tape, guaze pads,alcohol, antibiotic salve and emt gel. I also picked a tube of super glue which can be used to close a wound very well. Clean the area with alcohol, hold the wound closed and apply the glue.

Yeah, just make sure that you don't get the super glue on your fingers when you are trying to hold the skin together.
You will find yourself stuck to the wound and make it even worse.
It is very easy to do. Just a word of caution.

Try a skin stapler as well. I find it easier than having all the thread, and tying etc. It's one tool operated with one hand and you can use the other hand to hold the skin together. It's easier than you'd think. You can use it on cuts that are through all the dermal layers. I used mine on a cut my dog suffered a laceration on his face. Just be sure to follow up with antibiotics, as you may not get the wound clean enough in the field.
