Saline solution - made up in a pressure spray bottle. Pump up, spray onto wound to flush and stay safe.
Active Manuka Honey
Disposable Nappy (Daiper)
Vet wrap - Bandaged as a figure 8 bandage
Soft towels as leg wraps and a face cloth to place over the back of the hock.
Vaseline - placed around and below the wound
Saturated Copper Sulphate solution to remove proud flesh
These are the total items required to look after this large wound. No expensive potions & lotions required.
The wound was cleaned initially by the vet and three antibiotic injections given over three days. The wound has been totally clean with being washed with saline - the wound was not wiped or touched by hands until it came to the removal of proud flesh. Then woound washed with a face cloth folded in four, soaked in saline, passed over the wound, changed side, passed over wound and if not clean then re folded to expose clean side and wiped again. Cloth never placed back in water, excess saline thrown over the wound. Wound allowed to dry before new Copper Sulphate put on it.
Current weather conditions, heavy rain, flooding and mud - so you can see that the wound was not very clean at the start. The horse from day three has been on box rest and still is at 27 days. The reduced movement has helped considerably.
Thought I would post this to show that your first aid kit does not need to be elaborate or extensive that a few items can do very well.
