Medicated cotton wool - absorbs pus and holds infected secretions away from the body, cleaner wound environment
Cushioned protective layer - provides support and protection, safeguards against re-injury
Polythene backing cover - keeps out external contamination, keeps in warmth and moisture. leads to faster healing
Economical to use - can be cut to size so there is no waste
Animalintex can be applied as a hot wet poultice, a cold wet poultice or even as a dry wound dressing – particularly in a first aid situation. The technique used depends on the particular condition to be treated.
Hot wet poulticing is used for abscesses, corns, cracked heels, infected wounds, laminitis, mud fever, punctured foot, seedy toe, thorns and thrush.
Cold wet poulticing is used for bruising, capped elbow, capped hock, sore shins, sprains, strains and splints.
To prepare a poultice, boil water and allow it to cool to 38 degrees centigrade (so that it does not burn the horse) immerse the poultice and squeeze out excess water. Note that if infected pus is present, the poultice needs to be damp (not wet) so that the pus is absorbed into the poultice.
If a cold wet poultice is to be used, follow the same procedure as above but simply allow the boiled water to cool before application.
The poultice is applied to the horse after cleansing and drying the affected area and then secured with a bandage or poultice boot.
The poultice should be changed at least every 12 hours. The progress of the ailment can be checked at the same time. If the horse does not respond to treatment or is showing signs of distress, call your vet.
