Many horses seem to be a bit accident prone by nature. Whether your horse comes in from the pasture with a scrape or manages to nick himselves while being ridden, equestrians routinely need to treat lacerations. From minor cuts to large contusions, our extensive selection of wound care products will help your horse heal in a timely manner.
It is always a good idea to have ample amounts of wound care supplies in your tack room, as depending on the type of lesion, you may need to treat it differently. We carry a myriad of products from trusted brands like Manno Pro, LeoVet, Bickmore, America's Acres, and Straight Arrow to ensure that we have exactly what our customers need in any situation.
To clean superficial cuts and abrasions, you can use an antiseptic wash such as Durvet Chlorhexidine 2% Solution or EquiFit AGSilver CleanWash Daily Strength. Some of our wound sprays also go double duty, both cleaning and helping the wound to begin healing. Check out these versatile dual purpose products such as Vetericyn Wound Treatment.
Wound ointments are also extremely effective, they help to protect the abrasion from dirt and insects, while assisting the healing process. Equiderma Wound Ointment eases the pain of cuts, bites, and skin irritations due to its active ingredient Calendula, which is an all natural pain reliever. Specifically formulated to use during the hot and humid summer months, Farnam Swat Fly Repellent Ointment keeps bugs from further irritating and infecting the point of trauma. Our own Cheshire Horse All Natural Healing Salve, is popular among our customers, being appreciated for its antifungal and anti-itch properties.
You can keep infections at bay and optimize healing with proper wound care. Our experienced sales staff can help you to determine the best products to effectively treat your horse's injuries.
As always, if you have any questions about how to best care for a wound or think that the wound may require professional medical care, please contact your veterinarian.
