Okay, say your horse injures it's leg, cutting it deeply or severly. It is then treated and wrapped with cotton and vet-wrap. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the replys is there anythingn else you can use it for like the horse boot protector things lmao I can't remember the name im only 15 gosh what do you exspect :P

Well you could be thinking of many different boots. There's sport boots, splint boots, and bell boots. Sport boots are for protection of the leg when performing in high-activity sports. They are leg guards in case of over-stepping, etc. Splint boots support the legs, also used in high-activity. Bell boots, protect the hooves and coronet of the horse's legs. Hope this helps! Everyone, correct me if I'm wrong...

It depends. What DO you want to use the vet-wrap for? I think, the only thing I have seen it on is horses' legs lol

I've seen people use Vet Wrap in place of track bandages (over pillow wraps) after competition, etc. But, I think the main use is to hold bandages in place so that dirt doesn't get into wounds.

Oh, I've also seen people wrap a mare's tail up in Vet Wrap for breeding.

It's also great for making sticky (with no residue!) balls to throw at your friends!

Don't worry about using it. I have 3-4 rolls laying around at all times, just for those maybe injuries that could happen. I don't think it goes bad and its better to have some laying around and need it, than to need it and not have any. :)
