wound care products

I don't really have any wound care products incase any of my horses get a little cut, or something bigger.

My BO does have stuff, but I don't really like using someone else's things.

So what are a few esstiantial wound care products to have on hand?

I already have vetwrap and a small bucket (for like soaking a foot) but that's it really.
I'm not looking to get a bunch of stuff, but just some simple wound care products.

Thanks a bunchies!

Betadine solution and triple antibiotic ointment. Those are the two products that are always always on-hand.

Horseman's Dream
Dream Coat

Those items I always try to have on hand....
Horseman's Dream is a cut healer and healed up Sonny's cut underneath his head very nicely
Dream Coat is kinda like MTG but I find it also helps heal small cuts.

Thanks so much!

I'll head over to a tack shop and pick those up.

I had MTG, but it leaked out in my fiance's car

Must get more of that!!

Icthammol - black drawing salve
Saline solution - like you clean contacts with (for cleaning puncture wounds)
Wonder dust - or other powder to stop bleeding

I always have these things handy...

- Triple antibiotic ointment
- saline soluttion
- MTG (to help make the hair grow back)
- Betadine solution
- Furall (I love this stuff, here's a link http://www.rods.com/p/2876,147_Fural...by-Farnam.html )

That's main stuff that I always have and I pretty much use all of it pretty often.

Thanks so much.

Doesn't wonder dust CAUSE proud flesh, even though it's not supposed to? Or does it cause it if not used properly?

I also saw this stuff, Corona (i think that's the spelling) is that any good?

Idk about the proudflesh thing...hmm

Corona is like an ultra gooey salve/cream. I've not seen "mericle healing" with it, but I guess it doesn't hurt (??)

Thanks KickShaw.

I'll get it, and just be careful with it. It won't hurt to have extra stuff on hand. Everyone knows how horses are.

I won't get the corona... it just saw it in every horse magazine I looked at last night, and they didn't give a good description IMO, so I asked here :)
