Because Accidents Do Happen

Kelato Emergency First Aid Kit

Accidents happen, and when they do, you need to be prepared. With this handy kit, there is no need to run around gathering supplies. Simply bring out the kit and treat the injury and get your horse back on track.

The Kelato Emergency First Aid Kit is a comprehensive kit that contains all the first aid supplies you need to look after cuts, wounds, abrasions, strains and infections. The small, portable packaging means that it doesn’t take up too much room in your float or truck, and the quality products inside mean that you know your horse is getting the best possible care.

The Emergency First Aid Kit can help a wide range of equine injuries, from cuts, wounds and abrasions to infections or strains. The individually packaged EnduroWRAP, KelatoWRAP and Kelato Cotton Wool and Gauze ensure maximum hygiene and the KelatoGEN ointment facilitates the efficient healing of a wide range of cuts, from shallow abrasions to open wounds.

In your Emergency First Aid Kit, you will also find a CoolWRAP compression bandage, which provides extreme cooling relief combined with compression to minimize swelling, and a 600ml tub of SwellDOWN, which can be applied to warm or swollen areas to draw out heat and infection.

The kit contains:

Kelato Cotton Wool & Gauze

  • Wrap Kelato Cotton Wool & Gauze over a wound before wrapping with EnduroWRAP or KelatoWRAP bandages.
