It is always a good idea to be prepared in case of an accident. This matters just as much for your pet as it does for yourself. By keeping an accessible first aid kit close at hand, you can be ready for small treatments which you may need to make before visiting a vet. With horses it is always good to prepare for injuries which can happen round the stable or out and about, whether it be strains or cuts and abrasions. Even with house pets it is a good idea to have a selection of treatment products just in case they get into difficulty.
