Why Every First Aid Kit Should Include Veterinary Gamgee®

Veterinary Gamgee® has been a staple of horse owners’ first aid kits for many years having been originally invented and patented by us in 1880.

Now a legendary product in our range, Veterinary Gamgee® consists of a thick layer of superior quality, highly absorbent cotton wool enclosed in a choice of either traditional gauze or a non-woven cover.

Veterinary Gamgee® can be used in a number of first aid situations including:

  • Bandaging
  • Protecting a wound
  • Padding over a hoof poultice
  • Swabbing
  • Compression

How to Prepare a Poultice

To treat an abscess Animalintex® will need to be applied as a hot poultice. Place in a shallow tray with the plastic side facing up. Do not use a bucket, unless it has been sterilised first.

Using boiled water that has been allowed to cool to around 38 degrees centigrade, pour the water into the tray around the edges of the Animalintex® poultice.

Once the Animalintex® is saturated, remove from the water and gently squeeze out any excess water, so the poultice is damp rather than wet and place on the infected area with the plastic side facing up.
