First Aid Equipment

 
FIRST AID
 
 
No one likes to think of their horse injuring themselves but invariably they do.  Every horse owner should have at least a basic first aid kit for minor injuries and emergencies.
 
 
Suggestions for basic first aid kit:
 
Wound cream
Wound powder
Poultice
Vetwrap or similar
Epsom salts
Hibiscrub
Cotton Wool/Gamgee
 
These items should help most people out in a crisis - a thermometer is a useful addition but if you haven't taken a horses temperature before, ask your vet or an experienced person to show you how.
 
It can also be useful to keep sun cream and treatments for mud fever handy, you never know when you might need them!
 
Here at Murphys we hold a wide range of first aid items, complete kits plus informative books and our staff are on hand to help you choose what's best for you.  Select from our wide range including Vetericyn, Hypocare, poultices, wound powders, dressings and wide ranges of first aid care products from NAF and Netex.
 
Remember:  If in doubt, call your VET!
