Lassie is always there to help, but there are times when it’s her human counterpart that needs to come to the rescue.
As more outdoor enthusiasts hunt, fish and work with their dogs, Adventure Medical Kits is expanding its lineup of canine-specific first-aid products, introducing its Workin’ Dog Kit to retail in April 2016. Designed for enthusiasts who rely on their canine partners on the ranch or out in the field, the kit includes a range of medical supplies designed specifically for their loyal four-legged friends.
“Whatever the activity, our furry companions often get into as much, or more trouble than we do on the trail,” said Frank Meyer, chief marketing officer at Tender Corp., parent to Adventure Medical Kits. “This is a natural line extension to help our loyal brand users take care of their pets.”
The Workin’ Dog Kit (MSRP $110) contains both the information and veterinarian-grade supplies dog guardians need to deal with serious emergencies. The included field manual provides the user with comprehensive medical information on how to use the kit’s components to treat an injured dog when far from veterinary care. Key components of the kit include: a Survive Outdoors Longer Emergency Blanket to treat shock and hypothermia, an LED headlamp for hands-free illumination, an emergency leash, an emergency cold pack for sprains, strains and heat exposure and a self-adhering elastic bandage that won’t stick to a dog’s hair. For serious cuts and wounds, the kit comes with hydrogen peroxide and 10 CC irrigation syringe for effectively cleaning wounds, as well as QuikClot Gauze and Hemostat forceps to stop bleeding fast. A disposable skin stapler helps closes serious wounds out in the field.
This is the fourth product Adventure Medical Kits has debuted as part of its Adventure Dog Series, including the The Me & My Dog Kit (MSRP $50), The Trail Dog Kit (MSRP $25) and The Adventure Dog Heeler Kit (MSRP $10). The new Workin’ Dog Kit will be on display for preview at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2016 (booth #3244) in January.
