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…
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.”
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.
