+1 to the vet/feed store. Also, my lovely bride was a Trauma Nurse for eight years so I am pretty well covered on that front.

Excellent topic for a post here.

I spent 17 years in EMS, a large part of it as crew captain and county training officer. I have IV supplies available, though in small quantity. I have a pretty extensive first aid kit and trauma kit, but both need more stocking if they were to be used for serious injuries.

Where I fall short is in treating illness. A severe infection, either viral or fungal is difficult in normal times and will be most likely deadly or life-altering in a SHTF situation. The medicines needed to treat them can be expensive if you are serious about having a stock large enough for a full term treatment and still have meds left for other occurances. I'm slowly working on solutions.

Some suggested books are as follows:
Where there is no doctor
Where there is no dentist
Physicians Desk reference book-great for dosing of meds
Prehospital trauma life suppor
Brady's EMT and Paramedic texts
Gray's Anatomy
Mayo Clinic guide to self care
Medicinal plants of the prairies

I'm too tire to think what else I have, I'll have to post again when my batteies get recharged.

Yeah, it is, and thanks. I almost made a lame wisecrack about Indigo Montoya, but held myself in check for once. Good stuff.
