  • How To Properly Apply Vet Wrap
  • Oh how we horsepeople love vet wrap! Practical, inexpensive, self-clinging, multi-purpose, and available in a rainbow of colors, no first aid kit or tack box is complete without it. Dr. Isabelle Kilcoyne, Equine Field Service Resident at UC Davis, shows the proper way to apply vet wrap. Did you know the most common misuse of vet wrap is to wrap a leg with no padding underneath the vet wrap? This creates uneven pressure and can cause what is commonly referred to as a "bandage bow," a disruption of the circulation to the skin and subcutaneous tissues over the tendons. Learn step by step how to wrap correctly from Dr. Kilcoyne! Visit UC Davis' informative website http://www.vetmed.ucdavis.edu/vmth/large_animal/equine/default.cfm
