Do you have a dog first aid kit or disaster kit?

I am curious how many people have a first aid kit for your pets, and how many people have prepared a pet disaster kit?

If you don't know what a disaster kit is, you can find more info here:

I just started putting together a first aid kit for Joey, based on a vet website I found. It has the following (please let me know if I'm missing anything):

Rectal thermometer
Gas-X strips
A syringe without needle
Pepto Bismol tablets
Immodium tablets
Pedialyte
Jar of Turkey babyfood
Peroxide
Asprin
Benadryl
Plain saline solution

We also have our vet and poison control programmed into our cell phone, and posted on our refrigerator.

I keep most of my dog supplies in the kennel van, including medical stuff. I believe there's gauze, other wrappings, vet wrap, several types of scissors, ear wipes, Neo-Predef powder, Zymox, Dermalone, Flagyl, Benadryl. I also keep saline solution in the van for myself, plus three full water bottles (human drinking kind) and three full jugs of tap water, several days worth of kibble. The normal configuration has three crates all with bedding and water pails, all of my training gear (leashes, collars, toys, long lines, harnesses, tracking articles and flags, send outs, small traffic cones), extra dog bedding, sheets, and blankets, extra shoes and Muck boots, and a box full of sun screens, rain gear, and bug repellents for the humans.

If there were ever an emergency we could easily toss the dogs into the van and go without having to pack anything for them. I'd just have to grab my purse, camera, and laptop and we wouldn't really miss anything else.

Yep, I keep a huge tub with several dog/people first aid kits I've put together myself along with other things that might come in handy. It stays in the car and travels with me everywhere.

I have a pouch for human and k9 medicines as well as batteries which does NOT stay in the car because I don't want them exposed to temp extremes.

Also vetrap, sterile eye wash solution, I have some clotting powder, superglue (though I have never used it on a pad), guaze, triple antibiotic, dawn (for decon), muzzle,

NASAR has a pretty comprehensive list at the back of their canine cert document

I recently took a Red Cross pet first aid/CPR class so now I have a kit put together. What I don't have is a picture of me and my husband with Stosh- something they recommend in case you get separated from your dog in case of a disaster and need to claim your dog from a shelter.

First aid kit yes but nothing set for evacuation. With all of my animals I seriously doubt we would be put up anywhere. But I may put something together in a plastic tub, at least non food stuff.

Evacuation plans

I've been in some disasters and I'm now sort of intense about planning. I'm one "found" puppy over the line of dogs/cats I can transport at one time in and on my Jeep if we're faced with evacuation, and that one puppy makes me nervous. Don't know where she'd go! Anyway, I've learned that the majority of people don't plan at all for unforseen happenings. I for one don't want to leave anyone behind.
