But even worse than that is to not be prepared for one! There are natural product orders we receive every week where it would have been more helpful for our customer to have had the products on hand before they needed it and often would have reduced stress and suffering if it were already on hand. Often it also would have saved a consultation fee. I'll list a few of those here for you. Remember that in acute situations it is best to herb hourly or every other hour at the longest interval during waking hours (but get at least 4 doses in before bedtime) and continue the following day if you didn't get a waking day of dosing in). These products are Master of Herbology formulated, high quality and can be used for any species or stage of pregnancy or lactation. No meat or milk withdrawals.
The first one that always comes to mind (and yours if you've read my book is CAYENNE! Not just any cayenne, but ideally 40,000 heat unit cayenne and medicinal quality. There is no medicinal benefit to go hotter, so to me it's not worth traumatizing my pet, livestock or family member with anything hotter. I use this to stimulate the heart to wake back up as well as for heart emergencies, for bleeding, for hemorrhaging, to get new baby animals to clear additional fluids from their sinus, bronchial, lungs, for shock, hypothermia and more. Just about every situation one could face will benefit from this very inexpensive but very important herb. We keep it in the kitchen, milk room, tack box, stock trailers, first aid kit and vehicles. It's available in extract and in herb powder form from us at Herb Mixes & Supplies. (Click on the blue link for this and the other herb mixes).

And last but never least- My book- The Accessible Pet, Equine and Livestock Herbal will walk you through most emergencies and how I would handle them if I were in the same situation with my animal(s). Since emergencies seem to often happen after hours, before hours or on weekends /holidays having this book on hand will save you a lot of time and consultation fees.
BE VERY BLESSED :)
