RE: [RC] first Aid lessons - Ranelle Rubin


I would like to know what to do for Rattlesnake bites out on the trail..as I have had one horse bitten, and several close calls. The one that got bitten was fortunately trailered to the vet in time and survived. He was bitten on the nose and needed emergency care to keep the swelling from closing off his airway.

What if any general equine first aid lessons would you like to hear, know about, or have learned in all your barn, pasture, trailer time?
I give an informal equine first aid lecture at a community college for an equine science class, and they lesson and talk has become a bit stale.
So if you have any "tricks" or experiences and wished you had "something" on hand in the barn, pasture, trail, trailer.please let me know.
I am not a vet nor profess to know it all, but have some weird things happen. and have some really good tips and uses for items  ( some items have 2 purposes)
