Similar to a First Aid kit, it is used by handlers in South Carolina to deliver lifesaving treatment to a wounded K9 at the point of entry.  It was developed by Dr. Rob Presley of Upstate Veterinary Service together with the North American Rescue (NAR). Each kit is designed for the handler or medic to deliver lifesaving treatment to a wounded K-9 at the point of entry. Each kit is $125.
