EQuine Wound Care Oil by Feelgood Health

EQuine Wound Care is a soothing, nourishing natural oil formula to help support healthy skin and routine healing.

What is EQuine Wound Care Oil?

It doesn’t take much for a horse to sustain common superficial cuts and grazes. The skin is the largest organ in the horse’s body and accounts for 12-24% of the animal’s total weight depending on age. A horse’s skin needs to be monitored for changes. Horses in training often sustain minor scrapes. Inclement weather, wires, ropes, insects and kicks can all increase risks in paddocks and stables. During racing, horses can ‘over-reach’ (strike their front heels with the toe of their hind hooves) which can cause discomfort for a horse. The skin serves a number of functions, but the most important is to protect underlying tissues. There are two skin layers, the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis produces keratin and melanin that give the skin a protective function. Melanin is the pigment of the skin. Lipids and keratin combine to waterproof the skin and prevent various agents from entering the body. Sebaceous glands secrete an oily substance carried through hair follicles to the skin surface. This oil moisturizes the skin and helps to prevent excessive evaporation.

 

There is a lot that can be done naturally to help minimize superficial cuts and scrapes. Your horse’s stable should have no dangerous fittings or sharp objects. Feed mangers or water buckets should be fixed firmly if a feed bucket is used; remove the handle (your horse could get its foot trapped). If you use hay nets, make sure your horse’s feet cannot get caught in them (remove all feeding equipment after a horse is fed). All electric lights and switches should be out of reach of your horse, and waterproofed. Stable doors should be tightly secured, but keep many spare keys in case of fire (install a smoke alarm). Stable doors should be secured, as they might swing open. If your horse is being plaited, move him or her out of the stables while it is done, as needles may fall into the bedding.
