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.

I have a big shelf full of stuff at home, and I carry a back pack with me when I am hauling

The backpack consists of

Vet wrap 2 rolls

Chlorahexadine scrub brush

Breast pads, disposable and individually wrapped, very absorbent, cheap, and cover a foot or wrap nicely around a leg

Blue pads, these are like puppy pads but I get mine from a medical store, gives me a clean spot to work, works well for wrapping the leg to sweat or poultice

Hoof poultice pads

Sterile 4x4 about 5 packages

Telfa pads, these are non stick, smaller in size then breast pads, I keep a box

Antibiotic ointment, I either use polysporin, or a sulphur based

Saline 500 ml bottle

Saline in an aresol can

Syringes, needles, I carry about 2 of 5,10,30 syringes, and needles 22, and 20. These I can use to irrigate the wounds, also use to administer antibiotics, banamine, bute, ventipulmin

Duct tape

In my trailer I carry

Sore no more poulticing clay
Magic cushion

Also in my trailer I carry a non rebreather mask incase I have to perform CPR
I also carry a few human specific first aid things

For meds I carry

Ace for stone bruises
Ventipulmin for respiratory
Banamine for inflammation
Omeprazole paste for just incase
Penicillin iv one dose
