Linen thread tougher than gut sutures and holds muscle together better(easy to take out)
Hibutane (works on humans too)
Never stop...

diatomaceous earth
tampons/pads to use for severe bleeding

Flour in a small jar for putting in cuts so they stop bleeding.
(no I do not know if whole wheat or bleached white is best but I do know it works to save the animal/bird)

My first aid kit is for current on farm use and kept resupplied as used.

razor blades
scalpels
small sharp nosed scissors
large scissors that will cut bandage
multi use dosing syringes
multi use syringes in different sizes
needles 3/4-1.5" 18 gage
disposable syringes
surgical tubing
drenching tube
stomach tube
hoof nippers
hoof trimming knives/rasps
hobbles
ropes
banding equipment

tetanus vaccine
anti biotics for various purposes
calcium treatments for milk cows
mastitis treatments
blood stop
bag balm
betadine solution
surgical scrub
colloidal silver
fungicides
fly sprays
pine tar
deworming treatments
lime

Merck's vet. manual
non stick bandages
burn bandages
tube socks
leg wraps
vet wrap
dental molding material
epoxy glue
piano wire/quitar strings
infra red thermometer
stethoscope
boomstick with appropriate accessories for the job at hand
axe

Most of this stuff is good for people too. Most of this stuff should never need to be used. Most small animals such as chickens and rabbits are toast if they become ill and the axe or knife is the tool of treatment. You won't have the resources to expend on poor outcomes for little return.
