My vet wrap proved its worth for human first aid last summer when my grandson sprained his ankle. I wrapped his ankle in vet wrap and then overlaid it with duct tape, making sure the duct tape was stuck only to the vet wrap. It worked just fine and he was able to walk out on it (slowly and carefully). When we got home, I was able to remove the duct tape easily simply by cutting the vet wrap. I can only imagine the pain and suffering of removal if I hadn't had the vet wrap under the duct tape! I recommend the vet wrap even if you don't have a dog!

One thing, though--the vet wrap needs replacing every year or two. Under heat and the pressure of a tightly packed first aid kit, the foam will mold together.

And Mimstrel is right--the most important component of a first aid kit, canine or human, is what's between your ears!
