vetwrap
 
what do u use your vetwrap for??


Just wanted to see if theres more ways you can use vet wrap then just for injuries

Okay, say your horse injures it's leg, cutting it deeply or severly. It is then treated and wrapped with cotton and vet-wrap. Hope this helps. :-)

thanks for the replys is there anythingn else u can use it for like the horse boot protector things lmao i cant remember the name im only 15 gosh what do u exspect :P

Well you could be thinking of many different boots. There's sport boots, splint boots, and bell boots. Sport boots are for protection of the leg when performing in high-activity sports. They are leg guards in case of over-stepping, etc. Splint boots support the legs, also used in high-activity. Bell boots, protect the hooves and coronet of the horse's legs. Hope this helps! Everyone, correct me if I'm wrong...

It depends. What DO you want to use the vet-wrap for? I think, the only thing I have seen it on is horses' legs lol :-)

I've seen people use Vet Wrap in place of track bandages (over pillow wraps) after competition, etc. But, I think the main use is to hold bandages in place so that dirt doesn't get into wounds.

Oh, I've also seen people wrap a mare's tail up in Vet Wrap for breeding.

It's also great for making sticky (with no residue!) balls to throw at your friends!

Don't worry about using it. I have 3-4 rolls laying around at all times, just for those maybe injuries that could happen. I don't think it goes bad and its better to have some laying around and need it, than to need it and not have any. :)
