I use either a combination of Bal solution and 70% alcohol solution. If not that I use menthol alcohol as a brace.
I also make my own poultice

Mind sharing how you make the poultice? I'm super interested!

Do you just mix the Bal and alcohol together in a bucket? I've never heard of the Bal solution, where do you get that from? Is it regular rubbing alcoholor something else?

Depending on its use
Leg tightner ( basic )
1 bucket/pail ( like the ones at Homedepot that are orange )
1 bag clay ( most feed stores have this )
3 to 4 cups epsom salt ( more I used as a drawing agent)
1 bottle of vinegar (white )
Add warm water till mixture is like that of paste/cake frosting (lol)
I then wet down cut paper bags and wrap and over the paper bags I use plastic wrap then wrap normal

Packing hoof I use more epsom salt and cotton sheeting then wrap with vet wrap and then duct tape.

On the poultice keep a tight cover over it when not in use lasts awhile.

The bal solution I just mix 1/2 and 1/2 with alcohol in either a squeeze bottle or spray. I use spray bottle because there is less waste.

I make an linement and poultice. The poultice is

1/4 cup organic ground comfrey root
2 tbsp ground dry mint
1 tbsp ground sumac
1 tbsp DMSO
Water, enough to make a paste. Spread on a clean towel or paper towel, apply, cover with plastic wrap and vet wrap, leave over night, remove and wash clean. I use this on myself. Omit the sumac and DMSO, add chamomile and it can be used to draw infection out of open wounds.

Equal parts:
Green Alcohol, Witch Hazel, Brown mouthwash (generic Listerine) and Aloe juice…and I can get it all from my local Wallyworld! (Yes, I like cheap!)
