With thousands of horse veterinary supply products available, it is challenging for horse owners to determine which supply to use and when to use it. We agree with horse experts that the following veterinary supplies should be on hand at all times, in the barn as well as when going on the road.
- Two pairs of scissors, one pair with sharp ends and one pair with non-sharp or rounded ends.
- A box of gauze squares (minimum size of 3” x 3”).
- Sterile cotton (at least one roll)
- Lubricating jelly such as Vaseline.
- A rectal veterinary thermometer (plastic digital).
- Leg wraps (at least 4) including stable quilts.
- Easy-to-use bandages such as Vetrap.
- Disposable Latex gloves.
- Antiseptic scrub such as Betadine as well as Iodine shampoo.
- A bucket, sponge, and clean white towels used only for emergencies and kept extremely clean.
- Rubbing alcohol and alcohol pads.
- A box of thick sanitary napkins used for bleeding wounds.
- Epsom salts
- A pair of tweezers
- Duct tape
Review horse veterinary supplies on a regular basis to re-stock used items as well as to check expiration dates. It is also a good idea to pack all of your horse veterinary supplies in a storage box with a secure closed lid to keep the contents clean and dry.
