no stuff

I was a little stressed to find that the barn I was at didn't have certain items. I know that I should have my own things as well but I assumed the barn would have certain things on hand. Come to find out boarders have borrowed it and never returned it. What is wrong with people. I have printed off the entire list and am going to buy everything on it whether I need it or not. I hate not being prepared

I just wanted to thank the creator of this topic. I have just purchased a new horse and have already used several items in my vet kit! I am so thankful I made one before I got him to the boarding barn! Thanks!

It's a pest repelent *spelling?*. I use it in my horse's ears if the bugs are bothering them. And I think you can put it on wounds to keep the bugs off of them too. And by the way, you're not stupid for asking the quetion I think it was good you did.

Swat is a fly repellant ointment. It is great to have around for wounds, cuts, etc. Apply on top of whatever dressing you applied and it will keep flies and other bugs away from the wound! GREAT STUFF!!!!

I would make a few changes to the list:

No hydrogen peroxide, iodine, spray on wound dressings --all of these products are harmful to the tissues and slow healing. Hydrogen peroxide is far from a good antibacterial cleaning agent too. (information presented at the 2006 AAEP convention)

I would also ensure that the vet's phone number is included in the first aid kit so you don't have to go digging for it in an emergency and a copy of a good equine first aid manual.

Here is are a couple of good links on first aid and when to call the vet, but be warned there are some graphic photos:
