Horse First Aid Products
Here at Discount Equestrian, we are as passionate about your horse’s health as you are – which is why we always advise you contact your vet for advice prior to administering first aid treatment of any description.
Sometimes, provided we have the relevant knowledge, experience and understanding of general equine first aid procedures, we are required to treat our Horses for certain ailments ourselves. That’s where Discount Equestrian can help. We provide a range of veterinary and first aid products to care for your Horse in their time of need, including antibacterial wound sprays, healing lotions, soothing gels and creams, louse powder, purple sprays, sheath cleaners, Epsom salts, wound powders, poultices, therapy rugs, and much, much more!
However, as horse owners, many of us do have the relevant knowledge, experience, and understanding of general equine first aid procedures to treat minor injuries ourselves. Therefore, our dedicated Discount Equestrian team works hard to source high quality products for our market-leading Veterinary range, so you can rest assured that we stock only the best for your horse!
You’ll discover products produced by many of the equestrian world’s most prestigious brands in our excellent Veterinary range, including Carr Day & Martin®, Bucas®, Battles®, Barrier®, Absorbine®, and Cavalor®.
We recommend keeping a fully stocked equine first aid kit in your tack room, feed room, trailer, and horsebox at all times. Here are some of the bestselling products available in our amazing Veterinary range that we suggest are essential for every equine first aid kit:
Aqueos® Wound & Skin Infection Control Spray – “An essential for animal first aid kits, this spray kills bacteria, fungi, and viruses to aid the natural healing process. Ideal to disinfect cuts and wounds, as well as being suitable to spray onto areas suffering skin infection. This spray can also be used to clean and flush. Sting free and pH neutral, as well as being non-irritant, this spray is competition safe. Tested to EN1276, EN1650 & EN14476.”
Gold Label® Purple Spray – “Purple spray, or gentian violet spray, is used as an antiseptic for minor cuts and abrasions on animals. This is an easy to use, non-aerosol spray that should be applied generously to the affected area after cleaning.”
Hibiscrub® – “Hibiscrub antimicrobial skin cleanser has been used for more than 45 years in hospitals around the world to help manage infection. It is used for pre-operative surgical hand disinfection and antiseptic hand washing on the ward, as well as for pre- and post-operative skin antisepsis for patients undergoing elective surgery. Hibiscrub is not absorbed into the skin but binds to it to form a protective layer that kills bacteria within one minute, and continuing to kill bacteria for up to six hours after application. Unlike povidone iodine, Hibiscrub is not inactivated by bodily fluids. Hibiscrub has been dermatologically tested, and is proven to be gentle on the skin, even with frequent use. Repeated application of Hibiscrub has been shown to increase its antimicrobial efficacy.”
NAF® NaturalinteX Poultice – “The NaturalintX poultice is a highly absorbent, multi-layered dressing impregnated with natural poulticing agent Tragacanth and the mild, antiseptic Boric Acid. Tragacanth becomes active when wet, drawing any dirt and debris from the wound, while helping to maintain a moist, clean environment to support the natural healing of skin and tissue. The antiseptic quality of Boric Acid keeps the area clean and free from unwanted germs.”

Featuring a grooved sole for extra grip and a Kevlar® interior for durability, this hoof boot also has an asymmetric zip to give the boot a really close fit (and prevent it opening), which has the added bonus of stopping bedding and other debris from getting inside.

Leovet® Frogmedic Spray – “Highly concentrated thrush care for deep and thorough penetration. Specifically designed for use in acute cases, Frogmedic Spray penetrates deeply, spreading into the grooves and small fissures, thus reaching decayed spots.

Keratex® Mud Shield Powder – “This best-selling powder has several actions: it waterproofs, disinfects legs, and provides a silky layer to leg hair that helps mud slide off easily. This is an ideal product for horses who suffer from the damaging effects of mud and water. Comes in an easy-to-use bottle, simply 'puff' onto legs, pasterns, and fetlocks for all-round protection. Good for horses turned out in muddy conditions, keeping mud and water away while disinfecting their legs to maintain optimum skin health.”
