After nursing Sadie back from a URI this week, I realized that I have quite an assortment of GP treatment items on hand.

I have:
Bactrim
Baytril
syringes
eye wash
Nystatin Solution (for Candida- yeast infection of mouth)
Nolvason Solution (to soak bumblefoot)
Oxbow's Critical Care
Multi-vitamin treats with extra vitamin C

I was wondering what you had on hand.

I meant 23 guge I am dyslexic.

Wow, Mum you are packing quite the cabinet. Where did you order your Butterfly infusion sets from? I am still looking for a source.

I ordered them from here:

http://www.goldenhourmed.com/itemdetail.asp?mod=IV510B

But then I saw them at KV Vet, and I would have preferred to order them from there since I've ordered from them before.

I just realized I ordered 25 guage, which may be too small/slow!

Prednisone
SubQ paraphernalia
scale
monastat
torb
neo-poly-bac eye ointment

When Muffin was ill with lymphnosarcoma I used to joke about people coming over thinking I was some sort of drug dealer with the needles and syringes lying around and random piles of cash from tips at work!

My Medicine Box:
Baytril
Benazapril
Simethicone (mint flavour, yuk)
60 mg vit c tabs (that Shopper's doesn't sell anymore)
a ton of syringes in many sizes, some with needles some without
Ivermectin
a big bag of Lactated Ringers Solution
Butterfly cather set
big bag of frozen pumpkin chips for bribes and mash ('cause my pigs are snobs and only eat real pumpkin)
BNP ointment
Vit E oil
Almond Oil
Human knock off of vet wrap
various bandage pads, gauzes and med tape
smaller knock off Q-tips (better for boar cleaning. They fit better then real Q-tips)
mineral oil
scale
Monistat creame
acidophilous
saline solution
1 jar of baby food
Rolled Oats (appitite stimulant for Lina)
Syringe disposal bin (like the ones at the doctors. Canadians can get them free at Shopper's)
Hibitane creme
Betadine
Sadie's Anti Itch Spray (tea tree oil + oatmeal protien)
Baby food jars for mixing oils for Lina's skin
Frozen Pedialyte
Cornstarch (to stop bleeding nails)
Rice Bag heating bags (one small pigloo sized bag. One large human back size that can be used for pig in emergency)

And a big bamboo box to keep it all in since I can't have it clash with the decor and I don't own a medicine cabinet (we use an over the toilet cupboard for human stuff)

All of this has been used in the past 6 months except the BNP.
Some of this has been shared with humans in the past six months (ex. Pedialyte )

Wish List

Real Vet Wrap
Liquid Vit C
Curved tip syringe
Humilac spray
Electric heating device or snuggle safe disc
Pig that will eat canned pumpkin (any one wanna trade?)

Real Vet Wrap is much cheaper than the human knockoff. And it comes in really pretty colors. My 4" wide roll was only $2 at the feed store. They told me humans buy it there for themselves because it's cheaper.

A snuggle safe disk sound good to me too. I really love those curved tip syringes.

...what, what, what?

Lasix

Thermacare heating pads

Holy moly, I had more stuff than I realized!

I find this list extremely helpful also -- moreso than other lists. It is good to know what people actually have. I can group things, put a note about the prescription items and add something to the guide.

Keep posting! I also forgot about my Nizoral shampoo. It works well too.

Mum, that site has great prices for butterfly syringes! Did you have to have an Rx faxed to them?

From your other thread, it sounds like the 23 gauge worked fine.

The Snuggle Safe disks are good, not just post-surgery, but for the colder nights. I have two and put them in at bedtime, one at each end of the sleeping areas.

No, I didn't need an rx. I made a mistake and ordered the 25 sets from here instead of the 23, but judging by the speed at which the LR went in with the 23, the 25 should be ok - and less of a nasty stick for the pig!
