I have everything listed with Gretchen's kit (minus the Ringers solution and needles for Sub-Q's), plus I added the following to mine:

* Sterile Saline WIPES
* No Sting Alcohol Free Sterile Wipes
* Burn Aid Gel (Natural - contains Tea Tree Oil, which DOES act as a local anesthetic beyond being a pain reliever and a burn gel, so only for use with an e-collar on)
* Burn Aid Dressing (again, for use in an e-collar because of the numbing properties of tea tree oil)
* A bunch of disposable thermometers that read temp. instantly

For My Car (for trips or on my way to my vet, who is one hour away and on a country state road - they're open 24/7, so I could be traveling at 3am to this office):

* Solar Blanket (in case my car breaks down on a cold night, it retains 90% body heat, which I know glider do not give much off, but if my car had previously had the heat on, hopefully it would lock that heat in the cage with the HUGE blanket wrapped tightly around it, plus of course I have the heat packs)
* LED 3-in-1: acts as a flashlight, lantern, and an emergency flashing device
* Mini LED flashlight/cell phone charger
* 12-hour safety glow sticks

I got all of this at a discount first aid supply website for about $40, not bad considering the QUANTITIES of each item I bought......

I am going to run the Burn Gel past by vet to be sure it's safe before I would ever use it, of course. I looked at their "Consumer Page" type thing with all the info on it and bookmarked it to bring with me. It's just water and the tea tree oil from what I can tell, so unless tea tree oil (which is FROM Australia and has a strong eucalyptus scent - I have read that some people even use a few drops to clean their gliders' cages) is toxic to gliders or my vet gives me another reason not to use it, I'm going to keep it in my kit just in case......

OK, don't think I am going to use the burn stuff anymore based on info from a very knowledgable member. I will keep it for the humans in the house wink.
