Ethos,

First of all may I commend you on a great post and the response it has had from others.

I completely agree with you 100% on the stuff that you carry.

Even though we don't encounter any pigs over here in the UK, our coursing dogs often run into a barbed wire fencing and get horrible tears across the front of there chests.

I lost a dog after it coursed a hare in to the front of my 4x4 and there was very little I could do to save it.

I carry QuikClot gauze with me at all times. 

These are designed to absorb all the water from blood  and leave healthy, viable tissue ready to repair once at a better medical facility.

I have attached a training video of a pig having its femoral arteries slashed in two places, simulating massive trauma.  It can be seen how effective it can be and would possibly save a dog from dying whilst your driving out of the field.

I no longer use granules and only use the gauze version as it easier to manage, apply, remove and less thermogenic.

I'm a betadine user rather than chlorhex as its easier to see that I have covered the wound area better. Plus I get it on tap  Wink

Wishing you well,

Regards,

Nik
