The Field Trauma Kit for K-9 (‘FTK-9’) wound/paw, head, torso injuries. FTK-9 kit is designed to minimize trauma and enable field treatment of shallow and deep tissue (paws, legs, torso) injuries to MWD's (Military Working Dogs) and other service animals. Utilization mitigates trauma, preserves material asset (MWD), improves survivability and resilience of troop strength. FTK-9 (Poochie-Peds™) comes in a powder-form and is made up of a combination of pharmaceutical -grade coagulants, along with a natural, plant-based polymer called, amylopectin, which is found in many staple foods, e.g., wheat, rice, corn and potatoes. FTK- comprises a novel delivery system made of microspheres that can be manufactured to range in sizes from 30-600um and are made with 100% natural Beeswax containing adjuvants, manufactured by RMANNCO, Inc., Lenoir, NC. The microspheres are loaded/filled with FDA approved antiseptics, such as Tincture of Iodine, NeoSporin®, or antifungal cremes, e.g., Triple Care®, or common Tea Oil. Rapid coagulant components in the FTK-9 (Poochie-Peds™) product comprise a hydrophillic biopolymer (e.g., amylopectin, that binds to fluids, e.g., blood/lymph) and potassium ferrate. An additional (optional) component, a biopolymer (e.g., 2-octyl cyanoacrylate ) can be used in cases of profuse bleeding and provides both a temporary covering and analgesic effect to the injury (paw/toes) and lasts for up-to 2 weeks. These features insure both sanitary healing of cuts on the K-9's paw and the microcapsules containing antiseptic/antifungal compounds helps to soothe areas of injury (due to cuts from ice, snow, sharps, etc.).
