Horse First Aid Kit Supplies
If you are not prepared for medical emergencies, you could end up in a very bad situation regardless of where you are. There are many situations in which a horse first-aid kit will come in handy. Therefore, you should always carry one with you at all times.
Like a first-aid kit for your horse in case of a medical emergency or health issue, this checklist will help you put it together. In addition to these items, you should also include important documents, such as a copy of your horse's medical records, vaccination records, as well as the number of your veterinarian in case of an emergency.
Keeping the kit in a place that is out of reach of small children and pets is important, as is regularly checking it for expired items or low supplies.
Antiseptics & Antibacterials
In order to clean wounds and scrapes, it is advisable to use an antiseptic solution such as Betadine. It is important to apply an antibacterial spray or ointment such as Betadine or Wound-Gard after cleaning the wound in order to prevent infection from setting in.
A syringe can be used to draw up an accurate dose of liquid medicine for your horse if you need to give it liquid medicine. You can also use them to irrigate a wound when it is necessary to use a saline solution, and they are available in a variety of sizes.
