These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things: First Aid & Health


Kool Out Clay - Hands down the fastest working poultice I've ever seen.

Wound Care
Betadine Surgical Scrub - There are a lot of betadine washes but stick to the original...
Vetericyn - Haven't used but heard good things.

Leg Care
ColdFlex Vet Wrap - Love this stuff
DMSO - Another no brainer to have. BUT if you can find the roll on bottle, get it - so much easier to work with!
Fura-Free - Same sweat application without a cancer causing ingredient! Can be use for non sweat things... but I've always used it to sweat legs.

Hoof Care
Hooflex Thrush Remedy - Good preventative of thrush.
EZ Ice Hoof - Don't have it, but now that I've seen it, I want it and it seems like a good thing to have ready.

First Aid Tools
3M Vetrap - No brainer... the other brands flat out suck.
Utility Bandage Scissors
Digital Vet Thermometer - Waiting for non digital sucks too.
SureGrip Syringe - Love the grip thingy.
Oral Meds Syringe
Stable Tote - I keep all my first aid / health stuff in this. 
Box of randoms - QTips, Toothpicks, Epsom Salts, Flashlight, scalpel (extreme emergencies obviously), needles and syringes of different sizes, pill crusher, safety pins, gloves, rubbing alcohol, peroxide, twitch, plastic wrap, pile of old newspaper for poultice, etc.


  1. Carlos is allergic to the Eqyss line of products :/

  2. Looooooooove Keratex hoof hardener!

    1. It's great stuff! I need to remember to buy more this spring. I think I'm going to try the gel version next since the regular is so runny. Sometimes I feel like I'm wasting more than I get on the hoof.
