I keep antifungal cream in my tub at all times. When I first bought Kyanne she had really bad rain rot. But when I get my christmas bonus (still haven't gotten it) I'm using it to put together a really good kit. Thankyou to everyone who has chipped in on items and to the creator of this topic. BRILLIANT!!!

A few other things that might sound off the wall.....

Diaper doublers- come in very handy for those large wounds that you need more then just a guaze square.

Baking soda/water- mixed together you have a paste that will get rid of proud flesh.

MTG- comes in handy for so many things.

Great list!!

I don't think I saw it on anyone's list, but don't forget a good flashlight or other portable light source. You and/or your vet will really appreciate it if/when you have one of those middle-of-the-night emergencies as even most barns are not lit enough to easily do medical examinations/procedures at night. We keep around both a rechargeable battery powered light and a portable halogen work light w/extension cord.

Wow, this thread really took off in the two years or so its been since I posted it, LOL!

Im SO glad this list has been so useful to you guys! Unfortunately, since I took such a long absence, I was put on the Dormant-Moderator list (i lost the internet and had a VERY hard time getting it back out here in the boonies!) so I cannot edit the thread, since I posted it when I was an Active Administrator.

Last year I found out all that stuff about Peroxide as well, when someone recommended I use it to flush my ear. My doctor then told me it would actually really harm my ear and turn the inner ear "spongey" since then I took it out of my vet kit, LOL!

You guys made some AWESOME additions to my list, and I will try to create an updated one with everyone's selections! I need to get with the Administrator more sooner than later, lol!

Again, I am very glad this has helped you guys, and that everyone has had such good input on it!
