Tip of the Month, August 2011

Always keep a medical box filled with supplies in your trailer. This should include items such as bute and banamine paste, surpass, eye ointment, a thermometer, twitch, bandages/wraps, vet wrap, epsom salts, adhesive tape, scissors, and anything else you can think of. The key to a successful medical box is making sure you replace whatever items you use while traveling. There’s nothing worse than needing a roll of vet wrap, only to realize you never put any back in there!
