    Good thread link, but i think there should be a list...that you don't need to sift through

    Different antibiotics (sulfa drugs and tetracyclines)
    Neosporin (or comparable)
    Sterile gauze
    Mineral oil
    Isopropyl alcohol
    Mortar and pestal (for grinding pills and mixing herbs)
    Ivory soap
    Clean rags
    Sterile rubber gloves
    Scalpal and extra blades

    Seriously, this is needed for any medicine cabinet, not just a chicken cabinet!!

    thanks so much both of you. You're certainly right, all medicine cabinets should have this! [​IMG]. I'm still kind of new to this, and I really want to have what might be needed, if anything should happen. thanks again!
