    Default Back on Track Therapeutic No-Bows Leg Wraps

    Anyone know if these can be used for a stocked up leg instead of a poultice and regular standing wrap?

    If it is just normal stocking-up for that horse, then yes- I've had better results with Back on Track than with regular wraps. If there is an infection in the leg, or a skin condition- you should be more careful. The extra heat isn't good for all conditions that can cause swelling.

    Thanks for input.

    joiedevie99 - No, not normal stocking up but was apparently caused by an injury. I will see what the vet says this AM...

    I would use my BOT wraps + Sore No More poultice (or any poultice really).

    I don't think I would NOT poultice if that's what the treatment was. Depending on why you're wrapping, BOT can create heat, and if you're poulticing to draw out heat... then it could be contraindicative.

    I am a fan. I had an old TB with chronic lymphangitis and he wore then on his hind legs every night for the last few years of his life. He would come in for the night with some swelling, by morning (and after standing in a stall all night) it was significantly reduced.
    I love cooking with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food.
