Cheri’s First Aid Wound Care Picks!

Want to know what first aid products Schneider Saddlery representatives use on their horses? Customer service representative Cheri Kosteinshek has shown Appaloosas for 25 years, owned and worked with Thoroughbred racehorses for 15 years and now enjoys spending time with her miniature Schnauzer, Grace. Here are some of her favorite products…

Healing Tree TZon Equine Dermal Care Cream

Healing Tree TZon Equine Dermal Care Cream

1. Healing Tree® TZon Equine Dermal Care Cream
“This is an all natural anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory that contains hydrocortisone so that any associated itch is alleviated. It’s safe to use on cats, dogs horses and even yourself. Pain and itch are instantly relieved. It really speeds up healing. It’s great for any type of fungal problem or infection. A little goes a long way.”

2. EquiSilver products
“EquiSilver is another all natural product that kills bacteria and fungus on contact. The silver instantly alleviates pain. Results are very quick and healing time is sped up considerably. I also use it on my little Schnauzer because it clears up hot spots on dogs as well. I actually used it on myself a couple weeks ago when I put a nail through my finger and it didn’t even hurt the next day, so I know first-hand that it works.”

 

Vetericyn Hydrogel

Vetericyn Hydrogel

3. Vetericyn™ Hydrogel
“Vetericyn is a great all around product that is safe to use around the eyes, nose and mouth. It kills bacteria including antibiotic-resistant MRSA. The thicker gel formula stays in contact with the wound.”

 

Schneider Saddlery carries first aid necessities that everyone should keep around the barn.

5 Essentials In Case of Equine Emergency

Equine Emergency Essentials

When dealing with horses, accidents happen. Your horse’s wellbeing is your highest priority. Don’t be caught without these 5 essentials in case of an equine emergency.

1. Thermometer

One of the earliest signs of illness can be fever. Make sure you have a thermometer on hand in your barn. A basic vet thermometer like this one will get the job done. Make sure to tie a string or yarn to the end – this thermometer has a ring for it at the top but the string itself is not included.

2. Towels

You can never have enough towels at the barn. For wound situations, these MicroFiber towels work great because they are lint free. Use them to clean small wounds or to apply pressure to stop bleeding. Hand wash and air dry (or toss after use as there are 2 in a pack).

3. Wound Spray

There are many different wound sprays available, but one of the most commonly used is Betadine. Betadine is a microbicidal antiseptic sudsing cleanser containing Providone Iodine (7%) that promptly kills bacteria, fungi, viruses, protozoa and yeasts. A new product line to hit the market, EquiSilver, uses chelated silver as an active ingredient. It is 100% natural, non-toxic and testing has shown it to kill over 600 disease causing organisms. Their wound spray is quickly gaining popularity. Make sure to keep at least one of these products on hand to ward off infections under the supervision of your veterinarian.

4. Gauze / Cotton

Your vet may instruct you on how to dress a wound. A great option for dressing wounds is our Dura-Tech® Absorbent Cotton Wool & Gauze Roll which will not stick to wounds and can be cut to any size. Highly absorbent hospital grade cotton with non woven outer cover, it is great for protecting injuries while allowing them to heal.

5. Dressing Bandage

Keep a wound dressing in place with a self-adhering bandage such as Guard Tex Leg / Tail Wrap. The wrap is made of surgical gauze impregnated with natural latex and it adheres only to itself. It makes a “soft cast” when used over quilts and is very resilient. Another option is to use Dura-Tech® Vet Flex which hand tears and adheres to itself.

Need something for travel? This veterinarian approved Horse Aid™ First Aid Kit contains all the essentials you need. Keep one in your barn and trailer at all times!

When injuries occur, always contact your veterinarian.

Foaling in February – Prevent Hypothermia

Foaling early in the year is common, and it is essential to keep a new foal warm and dry after birth. Schneiders has several great options for your foal!

UltraFlex Foal Saver

UltraFlex® Foal Saver®

UltraFlex® Foal Saver®
Our Foal Saver® has Tekno-Dri® lining to help finish drying the newborn foal’s coat after birth and prevent hypothermia. It has additional layers of polarfleece and fiberfill insulation for warmth and moisture transport. The outer cover is high count cotton so that you can wash it repeatedly. The expandable Velcro front and Velcro bellyband fastening allows you to expand the fit as the foal grows. It also features a comfortable stretch shoulder. It is available in four sizes to fit any breed of foal, from Miniature to Warmblood!

From a customer in Doylestown, PA -
“I have 5 of these for my foaling facility. Wash in cold water, line dry, no bleach but oxiclean is OK for manure stains. Great for weak or preemie foals, keeps their body temperature up. Take care to adjust belly velcro strap away from foal’s umbilical stump, and watch that colts do not pee inside that strap. My foal blanket wardrobe numbers in the dozens, and the UltraFlex Foal Savers are my go-to choice, with Schneider’s Tekno-Fleece Foal Warmer my 2nd choice because of its stay-put, snugly adjustable nature.”

Tekno-Fleece Foal Warmer

Tekno-Fleece Foal Warmer

Tekno-Fleece® Foal Warmer
This Foal Warmer is made of non-pilling polarfleece for warmth and wickability. It slips over the head and has a jersey knit insert around the neck.
