What are your "go-to" first aid supplies?

One of my mares got a good size cut on her face. I used a few different products on it that I will have to go get to see the exact names of. But it made me wonder, what are your favorite products for simple cuts (don't require stitches)?

Triple antibiotic ointment is my absolute favorite. Good for people, horses, dogs, cats, chickens, etc.

My vet is a big believer in scarlet oil. Any type of an infection that leaves a deep pocket (like when my colt's castration site was infected) he has me swab it out with scarlet oil.

I also like iodine as a disinfecting agent for wounds. I will usually clean a wound with iodine and then put triple antibiotic on it after it's been cleaned.

We keep big spray bottles of peroxide, tubes of triple antibiotic ointment, and a silver spray that I don't remember the name of.
