Emergencies happen. Being prepared can help you get through them with less stress. Having an emergency kit in your barn and trailer is a good place to start. The kit should contain all of the basic items to get you through the most common emergencies until your TEVA veterinarian arrives, if he/she is needed.
Keep TEVA’s phone number on a laminated card in your emergency kit so that it is handy. Also keep some human emergency supplies in your kit so that you don’t need to keep a separate human first aid kit. Your kit can be kept in a clean plastic storage box. If you don’t have a lot of room, you can even use a clean water/food bucket. Just use plastic wrap and duct tape to seal the top.
Emergency Kit Supplies:
Ask your TEVA veterinarian if they would like you to keep the following supplies. These must be obtained through a veterinarian.
