New Mini First Aid Kits Available for Horse Owners
Horse Tack - First Aid Kits
A series of comprehensive and disposable wound care treatment kits is the latest addition to EquiMedic USA's line up of complete equine emergency first aid kits. Four new Mini Wound Care Kits expands the unique and varied inventory of EquiMedic's first aid kits and supplies designed expressly for horse owners.
Ranging in price from $2.25 to $10.00, these four Mini Kits come as complete triage wound care management tools with everything necessary available in a re-closable and disposable clear plastic pouch. The first three kits vary in the number of times that they can be re-used in treating an average wound from once to four times, and the fourth kit is designed to treat and care for a more serious wound two times.
EquiMedic's new Mini Wound Care Kits are designed to be taken directly to the site of a horse wound, and offer all of the necessary supplies to treat that wound without having to dig through your large first aid kit or arrive on-site without what you need. All of the kits offer such basics as exam gloves, area and wound cleansers, a variety of wound and compression pads, antibiotic ointment, applicators, alcohol and iodine wipes, and medical towels.
The smallest new EquiMedic Mini Wound Care Kit comes complete with 11 different products and 16 items, and the largest, the Serious Wound Care Kit, contains 17 different products and 34 total items. These smart disposable kits are handy to keep in any location where horses are kept and used, including the barn, trailer, arena, or saddlebag. All of the Mini Kit contents can be substituted for emergency use on riders or handlers if necessary, adding to their necessity and versatility.
"These new Mini Kits are a great addition to our current line up of six complete equine first aid kits," notes EquiMedic USA's equine practitioner, Dr. Rick Norton, of Lincoln, Neb. "If you have an equine wound that needs fast attention, just pull one of these complete Mini Kits out of your pack and get right to dealing with cleaning and treating the wound with what is packaged here for you," Dr. Norton adds.
EquiMedic USA is the world leader in the design of equine horse and rider first aid kits, with six complete kits available to the equine community, and over 150 first aid supplies. Kits currently available to horse owners include the Economy Kit (28 products & 63 items); the Horn Bag Trail Riding Kit (35 products & 130 items) the Small Trailering Kit (36 products & 153 items); the Large Trailering Kit (59 products & 341 items); the Small Barn Kit (40 products & 234 items); and the Professional Kit (85 products & 865 items).
