The goal of first aid on hounds in the field is to keep them calm, relieve stress, and keep them alive until you can get to a Vet. Many injuries can be handled in the field, then with quality after care at home. If in doubt always consult a vet. I never run my hounds without having my kit in my truck.

The worst injury I have dealt with was a gunshot wound. While coon hunting in the early 70's a friend of mine shot my Black and Tan hound with a 357, the bullet hit the back abdomen, with some fast first aid and a quick trip to the vet she survived. The dog was in a fight with 3 coon and he tried to shoot the big boar coon who had the dog by the rear and yes I forgave him.
