What I tell people, is to get the same supplies you would get for people just in larger quantities. There are lots of more specific supplies that you can such as vet wraps and certain ointments.
Here is what I had in mine:
Epsom Salts(you can get anywhere even walmart)
Gauze(both sterile and non-sterile)
Z.O. Cream (or other antiseptic cream)
Women's sanitary napkins(EXCCELLENT for wounds)
Hospital trauma shears
Clean stable bandages
LOTS of saline
There are all sorts of things you can use just make sure you know how and when to use them.
