PANTYLINERS preferably Always.

They are the perfect non-stick surface, cheaper than non-stick gauze... have multiple uses AND are usually better than a thick gauze trauma pad.

Excellent for road rash.

you don't even have to remove the liner, but it's good to because it will stick to the gauze wrap and not move around.


I took my HUGE thoroughbred gelding to a show once, he fell against the side of the trailer and scraped his back all over the place... we didn't have gauze pads big enough so the poor horse had to spend all night in his stall at the horse show with 6 Maxi pads duct taped to his back... roflmao

Since it was during a county fair and people were touring the barn I'm pretty sure the poor horse was MORTIFIED...

OHH Yeah I love Flagyl!! Best ever for non-specific diarrhea!
And another thing we keep on hand is the old version of Kao-pectate that you can only get in a feed store now.
Some dogs have issues w/immodium, especially collies and the like.

I would add that holistic remedies Apis and Arnica are good to have on hand in addition to the traditional.
