What’s in your first aid kit?
Given the chance, a horse could probably find a way to hurt himself while covered in bubble wrap. Good news! You can address minor injuries on your own with a well-stocked first aid kit.
First Aid For Pets - Being Prepared
We love that our pets can be fearless, energetic and adventurous. But as pet parents, we know they can also be clumsy and accident-prone, and their activities will eventually lead to injuries, cuts, and boo-boo’s. And when minor mishaps happen, it’s Dr. Mom or Dr. Dad at home who are the first to respond. Our pets rely on us to help them feel better and heal quickly.

Animal Wound Care and the Skin Microbiome
The skin is the largest organ. It separates our internal structures from the outside world. So it should come as no surprise that microorganisms living in that world — bacteria, fungi and viruses — decide to make a home on that skin. The “microbiome” is what we call the microorganisms living in harmony on the skin.
