Either for at home, or on the road, what are necessities that you always like to have on hand? For emergency cuts, lameness issues, abscesses, etc? Not so much as the bute or banamine, but more like vet wrap, gauze, scissors, etc. I'd like to create a checklist of what to have available at all times.

I will be watching this post. I have been wanting to restock my vet box as well. Mine is very old and has been picked over throughout the years so I want to go through it and restock what is all missing. Banamine for sure! Of course I never need it until I don't have it! I have only had a horse colic once and luckily it was at home and not a bad one. Well I remember thinking how I needed to restock my Banamine because I was out (had a horse that needed Banamine everyday for an injury). I didn't worry too much about it and went to a weekend barrel race...what happens? My mare coliced! Luckily my friend was well stocked with Banamine, syringes, and needles but I felt so horrible that I didn't have that on hand to help my girl out. Never again!!

I dont have a lot of stuff in mine but I do keep Elastikon Tape, Gauze, vet wrap, duct tape, EMT, quilted wrap, polos, ice packs, furozone and a few other misc ointments. I dont travel too far from home so I keep what I need to get them home safely.
