    I think betadine is good for cleaning wounds- it is what they use in hospitals.

    Nice list!
    I don't have much of a vet kit, just the basics.
    But I think I'm going to hunt around the house for some of these things, I know there is cotton swabs, bandage scissors etc in the bathroom. Might need to clean out a box in the tack room and use it for a vet kit. :)

    Like you said sunscreen is definitely important I also use zinc for the blisters.
    Also a handy thing I use is absorbien for after the horse show aces and pains ;)

    I won a tube of horseman's dream veterinary cream at a show, and I won't be without it again. It has lots of vitamins to help heal skin quickly and also has aloe. The cut has to be cleaned first of course, but I always put this on after it is clean (and mix it with swat in the summer) and the cuts always heal very fast!! It does not seem to irritate my horse at all either, he doesn't mind at all when it's applied.

    Something to consider is what you have in your med kit for topical treatment care. At our barn we threw away a tray full of the usual treatment products (some very expensive) for wounds and skin problems and started using the Simple Relief wound cleanser and wound gel. We have been amazed at how fast things have healed. It has saved us $$$$ in vet bills. We didn't realize how powerful natural products could be.

    I think molasses is a great addition. Some horses have to take medication mixed with their grain and won't eat it. Adding molasses helps and they love it too :) It also keeps for a looong time

    I would just like to add Vetrycin (I think that's how you spell it) for pretty much any wound or skin irritation. I have been using it recently for my horses injured leg after she was kicked. Vetrycin was reccomended by several people and so far her leg has only gotten better. It comes in a spray bottle and is colorless and odorless as far as I can tell. The down side is it's pretty expensive but they have different sizes.
