forgot to mention, I keep my first aid kit in a backpack. If I'm trailering, I just throw it in (it also hangs easily on a bridle hook), lots of pockets are great for organizing, and easy to carry around. A used backpack us fine.

I also keep a can of Lysol spray at the barn,it's great for spraying off hoof picks or brushes or scissors, anything I'm using on anything dirty, infected, thrushy, whatever- keeps it from spreading.

I did not see anti-bacterial soup on your list but that comes in handy when cleaning the wounds.
Betadine scrub works the same. It is antibacterial. It is used to wash up for surgical prep, and the patient and the doctor.

Seems I need to start printing and shopping. I work for a vet, so I can get some of these things in a pinch. But he's not an equine vet, so I have to get most of it on my own. That, or send him shopping and have him take the supplies out of my pay.

Underwood Horse Medicine

I have had a kit for quite sometime but wasn't quite sure whether I had all the bases covered. Thanks for posting.

A huge tool in my kit is Underwood Horse Medicine. Look it up online. It is awesome!

only things I would add is fly-spray (not mortein or whatever lol flyspray for horses) and those wrap things that turn cold when you crush/squeeze them

My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder, She carries me away from all my fears, And when the world threatens to fall asunder, Her mane is there to wipe away my tears.

On the previous page @PaintedMare, that's a great list.. I especially loved the 2 5" pieces of hose.. that is an ingenious idea.. I live in the Phoenix area and rattlesnakes are a constant worry. I've had plenty of close calls.. The biggest offender being the Diamondback, they are vicious!!

Cleaning open horse wounds
The best thing to use in cleaning all sorts of cuts, tears or abrasions is sterile saline solution. You should always have some saline in your first aid kit, and plenty of it, since it's the best way to clean wounds. If you've run out or are in a place where there is no saline, flush wounds out anyway with water from a hose. If there's any contact lens saline around, that will work. The goal in cleaning the wound by flushing with clean liquid is to wash away bacteria which might otherwise cause infection, so use plenty of fluid when flushing a wound, and let the excess pour away, hopefully carrying bacteria with it to the ground and away from your horse. source: horse and horses information
