i have had butalone (bute) handy for a while as my pony (named amber whom some off you might know about from my previous posts) foundered badly 2 years ago. we kept the container which, in fact, came in very handy THIS year as she has shown signs of foundering again....we give her 1/2 a teaspoon daily mixed in with a small bowl of hard feed
this list is quite a good idea.....i have found that i don't have much of a vet kit handy....
4 polo wraps, a spray bottle of iodine, towels, cotton balls, gel burn dressing (no idea why its there but it is), butalone, a spare hoof pick and some assorted things from when another horse i used to own, a thoroughbred named sara, ripped half her hoof off.
but thats it...i might start collecting some of the things on this list...they'll come in handy!
i also have the vet on speed dial and the farrier too..i never know when i might need them!
***another for the list***
snap cool ice packs....availiable from tack shops (like horseland...australian only)
^ ^ ^ instacool is one of the brands
they are great because they dont require freezing....all you have to do is snap them and you get instant cold....only thing tho...its only for one use so they need to be replaced when they are used
not sure if this is on the list....prob is but here it is anyways....
