Equine First Aid: On The Road
Being away from home and your regular veterinarians can be a bit stressful at times.
Our staff at Deer Creek has put together a list of items we advise horse owners keep in their trailer first aid kit in the case of any emergencies.
Standing wraps and no-bows
Banamine and/or bute paste
Elastikon and white tape
Triple antibiotic ointment
Betadine or chlorhex scrub
4x4 gauze pads
Liniment and poultices (if competing please be sure all liniments and poultices do not contain any banned ingredients!)
Absorbine makes a compact gel liniment and Hawthorne's makes a Sole Pack hoof poultice paste as well as single use Cool Cast poultice wraps that are very affordable, easy to store and apply!
Copy of your horse's medical records and veterinarian's contact
Keep these items in a waterproof tote in an easily accessible area of your truck/trailer.
