Pixie-Bob News Room

Monday Morning

    Thanks you for the dog farting suggestions..there
was one pretty overwhelming suggestion that I used,
and it worked.


Activated Charcoal.
    You can use it as a tablet, liquid ( which I have, or a powder)
    I advise it for use in all poisonings, at is absorbs the
toxin and prevents it from causing damage. In the case
of flatulence, the Charcoal will bind to the food product
that the colon is digesting, preventing secondary and
unwanted gas production.
    Great idea, and you should have this stuff on your
house in the event of an emergency.
    I only wish I could get my father to take some
of this stuff for Christmas dinner..but his gas is
another story.
    The ‘theme’ this week is emergencies and the most
important STEPS in treating the common
dog and cat emergencies.
     FIRST you need to be prepared.
You can buy a commercial Pet First Aid Kit
If you want to make a First Aid Kit at home, include the
following items:
   1. Rectal Thermometer: The new electronic kind works best.
Electronic ones beep when they are finished registering a temperature,
they are slightly smaller than the glass kind, and they do not break as
They can be covered with a thin sleeve to halt the spread of germs.
They can also be used as oral thermometers. They do have a battery
which will need replacing and they are more expensive then the glass
ones. Normal canine temperature 101 to 102.5°F; (38-39.5°C); normal
feline temperature 101 to 102°F (38-39°C).
   2. Lubricating jelly, to lubricate thermometer and wounds
   3. Gel packs that can be used for hot and cold compresses
   4. Adhesive tape to secure bandages- both non-stick tape and
waterproof tape
   5. Blunt tipped scissors (a must for animal first-aid – used
for cutting hair away from wounds)
   6. Bandage scissors
   7. Splints
   8. Alcohol swabs to sterilize instruments or small areas of skin
   9. Antibiotic ointment for wounds (not for eyes) (i.e. Polysporin,
for non- puncture wounds)
  10. Contact lens solution for rinsing eyes, to clean wounds
(water can be substituted)
  11. Cotton swabs (i.e. Q-tips)
  12. Chlorhexidine (brand name- Germi-Stat 2%) – a mild antibacterial
soap for cleaning skin and wounds
  13. Sterile cotton or cotton balls
  14. Sterile Gauze Pads (the larger 4″ size is better since it can
easily be cut smaller if necessary)
  15. Rolls of gauze or cling gauze bandage (1-2″)
  16. Hydrogen Peroxide – 10 ml every 15 minutes to induce vomiting
in animals that have ingested a non-caustic poison
  17. Razor Blade can also be used to shave away hair and abrade the
skin following a tick bite
  18. Stockingette to protect bandage on leg or foot
  19. Rubber bulb ear syringe – used for flushing eyes, ears, and wounds
  20. Forceps and/or tweezers
  21. Self-adhesive bandage (i.e. Vetrap)
  22. Numbers for the Animal Poison Hotline & Poison Control for Pets
(800/548-2423 or 900/680-0000 both numbers charge a fee). The National
Poison Control Hotlines for humans should also be included.
  23. Information card with your Veterinary Emergency Clinic Number
  24. Your pet’s baseline Temperature, Pulse, Respirations and Weight
  25. A muzzle, or fabric to make one
  26. Bubble Wrap for making an emergency splint
    P.S. My Veterinary Secrets Revealed Manual is going
On Sale..BUT I have printed ONLY 100 copies.
Those of you on the early notification list
get the First Crack today..I’ll send out a link
to the rest of you tomorrow.
    P.P.S. If you are stumped for Holiday Gifts, why don’t
you give a donation to an Animal Shelter in lieu
of giving significant others un-needed ‘stuff’
I am doing this with my wife and family members this
year. You all know that my Charity of Choice is
Second Chance Animal Shelter at
It’s Your Pet. Heal Them At Home!
Best Wishes,
Dr Andrew Jones, DVM
