First Aid for Wounds

Horses and ponies often receive cuts and other wounds particularly on their face and legs. Many require just simple first aid measures, while others require the attention of your veterinarian. Simple first aid measures can help reduce the risk of infection or further damage.

Your first aid kit should contain the following items:

  • Sterile non-stick dressings (10 x 10 cm or 10 x 20 cm sizes)
  • Cotton wool or Gamgee Roll
  • Bandaging materials including self adhesive sticky and non-sticky bandages
  • Spare clean stable bandage
  • Small bottle of disinfectant, such as Betadine, Hibiscrub, Savlon, or Dettol etc.
  • Scissors
  • Wound poultice dressing
