First aid kit horse

No matter how watchful you are or how well the horse shed is managed, the unexpected sometimes happens. If an urgent situation does arise, you'll be in much better shape to help your horse if you've got a well-stocked first-aid kit on hand. Anyone who has possession of a horse should own a well-stocked First Aid Kit. Start by buying a plastic bucket that has a lid and place all of the first aid supplies in the firmly sealed container. The following are first-aid materials that are essential to be kept in a well-stocked First Aid Kit. These supplies should be held in reserve in all First Aid Kits. Keep the kit in an accessible place, such as next to your horse's tack, and store them in strong covered containers. Be sure you can get to it without difficulty during an emergency.

Things to be included in the kit:

An Iodine Solution that is appropriately diluted in Betadine. All fresh wounds should be flushed out with this solution. Only use Hydrogen Peroxide to clean all deep wounds or punctures. Neosporin and Nolvasan are relevant antiseptic ointments that fight bacteria and promote healing. These should be used twice on a daily basis after a veterinarian has seen the wound.
Use Sterile Gauze Sponges when cleaning the wounded area with a Diluted Iodine Solution. There should be a self-adhesive tape and sterile gauze also. The self-adhesive tape holds the sterile gauze to the injury. The self-adhesive tape with no trouble is applied and removed.
Blunt-tipped bandage scissors come in useful for removing bandages. Nonsteroidal eye ointment comes in handy when a horse hurts his eye, and a veterinarian is not immediately available.
An adult horse's standard temperature is between 99.0 and 101 degrees Fahrenheit. Inject able sedative and pain killer should also be kept in a small dose of each available. They come in handy in situations such as stomach pain or for horses that are unwilling. Rubbing alcohol should be used to disinfect your thermometer after and before you use it. There should be a lubricant which includes a tube of K-Y jelly or another water-based lubricating product to help grease the thermometer before insertion into the rectum.


Other supplies that should be included in the kit are easy-boot, stethoscope, twitch, hoof pick, fly lotion, wire cutters, electrolytes, and flashlight. No one desires to face an emergency. But when it comes to the welfare and security of your horse, it's for all time best to take safety measures in advance and be geared up for the sudden things.
