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

  • Thermometer

  • Banamine and/or bute paste

  • Non-adhesive pads

  • Elastikon and white tape

  • Triple antibiotic ointment

  • Betadine or chlorhex scrub

  • 4x4 gauze pads

  • Vetrap

  • Gloves

  • Roll gauze

  • 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!

  • Alcohol wipes

  • Flashlight

  • Hoofpick

  • 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.
