Equine First Aid Kit

Updated: Sep 7

I have a very basic and simple first aid kit for my ponies. There are many places where you can find lists of things to include in your kit. Many are all inclusive. This list is short and sweet!


I bought an electrical bag with lots of pockets from Home Depot to hold all my first aid kit items. This makes it easy to grab and go when I’m traveling with my ponies.


I filled my bag with:

My First Aid Kit Essential Oils


Diapers make a great wrap for those difficult spots – hocks & knees. I like to use white towels so I can see the dirt and/or blood that may be on an injury and then bleach them clean but rags work just as well.


Vet wrap is obvious… As is Hydrogen Peroxide!


I use the Saline solution as a wash for injuries and for eyes.


Witch Hazel is wonderful for skin ailments.


Mineral Oil and coconut are for tummy aches and to lubricate syringes. Syringes can be used as enemas or for giving medication orally.


Banamine is used for colic and sore muscles. I use this VERY sparingly but it has come in handy on several camping trips for other people's ponies and horses!


I like the roll on fly repellent and the swat because you can apply them right around the injury without getting them IN the injury.


Bag Balm is a miracle in a can! It's wonderful for cuts and scrapes, burns, scratches, etc. I have used it many times on my personal injuries, such as rope burns and cuts.


My little spray bottle is great for applying essential oils to the injury, inside the mouth or around the eyes.

Tell me something that’s in your kit that I don’t have by commenting below… It may be something I need to add!!
