Skin, puncture wounds and soft tissue wounds are the most common injuries owners present their horses to a Vet with. We recommend keeping a basic horse first aid kit on hand to treat any minor skin tears quickly and easily. The first aid kit should contain: a Thermometer, antiseptic wound cleaner and antiseptic cream, Sharp Scissors, stable wrap like Valuwrap, gauze or cotton wool swabs or Soffban, adhesive bandages such as Valuplast, zinc oxide cream such as Potties White Ointment, epsom salts and telephone number of your local vet.
