  •  A muzzle - or materials to make a muzzle
  •  Antiseptic wash or wipes - look for non-stinging preparations such as Betadine.
  • Betadine or similar antiseptic solution
  •  A blanket –to keep warm/cool.
  • Ice and hot packs - cool down skin after a burn or keep an animal warm if hypothermia occurs. Always use a cloth between the pack and skin
