Glucose/calcium for oral use, calcium glubionate and oral glucose

Pain killer such as Torbuterol or Buprenex-either will last a year stored in the fridge-for emergency use in case of injury until a vet can be seen. Refrigeration depends on if it's mixed with a base-if injectable form, refrigeration usually isn't necessary.

Baytril (and some other antibiotics such as Clavamox, Amoxicillin) will last 6 months frozen in syringes-and does well as a topical also.

SSD, or Silver Sulfazodine Cream Topical for wounds/burns-helps skin heal quicker.

Remember not to give Ensure to a dehydrated glider.

For evacuation/travel, small Reptariums would be ideal as a temporary cage setup-lightweight and break down/put up easily (can carry in a duffel bag), or a large soft side carrier (such as Sherpa) that can double-if evac lasts days, they'll need something other than a pouch.

Keep a variety of baby food fruits/veggies in jars, and dried fruits (apple, nectarine, peaches, papaya, cantaloupe)/veggie(Smith's/Kroger has a freeze dried Corn, called Comforts-great as a healthier snack than yogurt drops, and for an emergency kit-first dried veggie I've seen), also some Canned fruit/veggies-low or no salt.

Popsicle sticks rather than toothpicks (which could break or splinter) as a splint

Hand towel to put between glider and ice/heat packs, or meds and ice pack.

Iodine can also be dabbed on the end of a quicked nail to prevent infection.

Along with medical file, pen/pencil add a small notebook for notes/records.
