It seems like everyone on here keeps a supply of various medicines and what not on hand for emergencies with their puggies, it's made me realize that I am not prepared at all if something goes wrong. I have Pet Pectillin, but that is about it. What are the key supplies I should have on hand if Winston has a health issue that doesn't require immediate vet assistance (and what are the recommended doses, uses, etc.)?

I only keep a natural medicine kit : colloidal silver, coconut oil, aloe Vera gel and juice, bentonite clay liquid, witch hazel, hydrogen peroxide, coconut water (natural substitute for pedialyte when there is vomiting or diarrhea to rebalance electrolytes), gauze.
Oh and slippery elm and marshmallow root, and colostrum and probiotics when there are tummy issues
Holy crap I have a huge tool box crammed with stuff, but I have 14 and most are geriatric or special needs....
I think we did a thread on this a while back, I will see if I can find it.
