Betadine, gauze bandages, a few of those stretchy colored bandages, thermometer, twitch, aloe cream, alcohol, ice bags, saline spray wound cleanser... that's all I can think of right now.

tweezers! lol vaseline (for the thermometer silent ) vetwrap, bandaids (for people), scissors, wire cutters, bute, phone numbers (vet, owners etc) , epsom salt, zinc oxide, jug (or electrolytes), stethescope, stopwatch or timer, flashlight, duct tape

for extra points make an index card that has normal heartrate, temperature, and respiration for a horse

I had to do one of these for 4-h what is the theme going to be for the stall decorating?

I have most of the same things listed above except I use chlorhexidine instead of betadine... betadine burns wound edges & chlorhexidine tends to be less harsh also even less expensive and has more healing properties...

I always have maxipads nothing better for wounds that are bleeding heavily esp. on legs- vet wrap on a maxipad and you are good to go my husband was appalled affraid when he saw me do that now he goes and gets them to restock Dancing oh I forgot I also keep a leatherman 10 tools in 1 yeah cheers .

My Crash kit has: roll of cotton, Furazone, Novalsan scrub, 4 x 4ís, Bedidine ointment, vet wrap, elastic tape, nylon wrap, Banamine, Bute, EPF 5, Equi-Spaz, ice packs, big syringe for pasting and duck tape.



I pack this when ever I take a horse out to a show. Idea
