First Aid Supplies
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! When it comes to horses, it unfortunately seems that despite our best intentions, accidents are inevitable. The best thing that you can do is to be prepared for anything your equine companions can throw at you and have the proper tools at your disposal.
We carry a full selection of first aid supplies, helping you handle everything from small cuts and scrapes to full blown emergencies. With products from brands such as Priority Care, Neogen, AgriLabs, Absorbine, and Durvet, you can be assured that you are ready for times of crisis.
Monitoring your horse's TPR (temperature, pulse, and respiration) can help you quickly assess your horse's condition. It is essential that you establish a baseline so that you know when your horse is feeling ill. Ask your veterinarian to show you how to use your thermometer, like the GT Reid Veterinary Thermometer or Neogen Ideal Instrument Veterinary Thermometer, and your stethoscope, such as the Cotran Stethoscope, adeptly.
No first aid kit is complete without a bottle of Betadine Solution Antiseptic Microbicide. This versatile, iodine-based scrub allows you to disinfect not only your horse's skin, but also your equipment, like the Offset Scissors from Sullivan Supply.
In times of inflammation, many people turn to phenylbutazone or banamine. However, these NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) require a prescription. Durvet AspirEze Gel and Absorbine B-L Paste are easily available in-store and online. These palatable pastes give your horse relief from pain without giving you the headache of dealing with a pharmacy.
