What are poultices, and how can I use them effectively?
Hello Abbi!

Poultices are compresses that you can use with or without antiseptic product and that will protect the injury of your horse.
You can use them if the wound is to too big (big wounds that need stitches: call the vet immediately.

You need to change them every day and sometimes several times a day (depending on how bad is the injury, where it is located on the horse and also the weather it is).

You can also use it with antiseptic but be careful not to use corticoid.

I hope i could help you :)
