Tons of uses, a must-have for any pet owner
Vetrap is wonderful in any barn or any house. We've been using this stuff for years. It adheres to itself without adhering to pet fur or skin, and without requiring tape or anything to keep it on. Probably best used on limbs and "hard" parts of the body, as it would probably slip off the abdomen of a dog or cat.
Here's just a few things I've used it for:
1. Covering stitches on a dog's leg (gauze pad directly on stitches, vetrap over top, changed regularly).
2. A quick way to put up a horse's tail (braid tail, fold it up, throw a couple loops of vetrap around the whole thing).
3. Stabilizing a sore or injured ankle. Best with cotton underneath for comfort and to allow the skin to breathe.
4. For hoof emergencies - in my case when a horse ripped off their shoe along with a big chunk of hoof - we cut a couple layers out of playroom foam tiles, duct-taped them to the hoof, and wrapped the whole thing tightly in vetrap to protect and stabilize the hoof with the foam.
5. For hoof illness such as laminitis, the foam-and-vetrap works very well to provide some stability and comfort (all the way up, from toe to knee, but with cotton starting at the coronary band). We now use those special angled plastic boots instead of the foam, but still apply vetrap as before.
6. Last hoof use, can also use it to make a quick "boot" for applying some medication-soaked gauze to the frog.
7. Apply medication to a wound, place a gauze pad on, wrap in cotton then vetrap to keep the dog from chewing it (the cotton allows air to the wound).
8. Covering a splintered rake/shovel/manure fork handle with vetrap.
9. You can cover something possibly hazardous, like a rough edge that a pet can cut itself on. Still not a replacement for actually fixing the thing, but good in a pinch.

excellent tape for wounds
Stays on and is a wider bandage than the ones you can buy in the store. Hard for the dogs to remove.

Holds the bandage in place...
until you or your pup decide it is time to take it off! Easy to cut to length and to position and reposition. Stretches and conforms to the body part, roll is generously sized. Useful for pet or human first aid kit.
