Anyone have a "hot spot" where they order medical supplies? Basically looking for wound care items.

www.medicalsupplydepot.com
Has a 5% off coupon on the first order.

https://www.buymedical.com/
Free shipping on orders over $35.

Still digging around but I usually get what I need at Walmart or the dollar store type places but curious if others have another source that go toward bulk type things that save a little $ in the long run.

Thanks in advance.

At one time I'd have offered my services but alas, I got out of the business. Moved away from the main supplier and after that it was a moot point.

I would suggest,m though, that you give these folks a gander:

https://www.shopmedvet.com/

The difference between human animal wound healing isn't much. Some things that some animals will withstand that you wouldn't want to use on us humans, but overall the products will cross over.

We have a veterinarian on our survival medicine writing team who is learning human medicine on the side, and who has been a wealth of information. We compare notes for the benefit of all. You would be surprised how much human medicine (meds, supplies, etc) gets used in the vet field, and perhaps vice versa.

Nice site - 90% off on a lot of items I have interest in. Doesn't hurt to ask - much appreciated. Now to compare prices!!!

Hubs just had 2 majors surgeries in a month for a chronic condition. Looking at two a year possibly for the foreseeable future. For bulk stuff, we are Amazon customers but some stuff we get from farm supply stores. We are there anyway so stock up on things.

RR, vets have patients that do not speak and so a good one is intuitive and observant. The really good vets I have had the privilege of knowing, are open minded to most anything that works and sometimes it is really alternative medicine!

Stocking up on real supplies is great but, knowing how to sterilize cloth and having cloth such as cotton sheets may be worthwhile. Sugar and honey have a place in wound care.Where sterility isn't a concern, minipads are cheap and useful.

Google school nurse supplies. Cannot remember which one used to have good pricing on gauze and such. A quick look might be worthwhile.

No, did not know you had one .
Sorry, the first paragraph was meant for you, agreeing about the knowledge base of vets. The remainder was meant for op.

Interesting, I need to improve my survival medicine skills.
Where can I go to find out more about your work and your publications?

Like the box said on the Mitch Miller program: "S'okay."

Free pdf download. Also available in a hard copy version but may as well decide if you want to spend the bux first. At just over 600 pages the commercial print is less than trying to do it yourself. But the content is identical as to the download vs. the print edition.

https://1776patriotusa.com/survival-austere-medicine/

Two of the other authors also are members here, FYI. Both are docs in real life.
