1. How can I determine the right size of bandage for my horse?

In order to determine the correct size of compressive bandage it is necessary to measure the affected leg at several specific points (see downloadable picture). Measurements must be taken repeatedly – in the morning, around noon and in the evening. If your horse is exercised heavily during the day, take another set of measurements immediately after exercise.

2. Can bandages and sleeves be machine-washed?

Yes, bandages can be washed using regular chlorine-free washing powders and liquids. It is not recommended to use fabric conditioners, especially for products containing silver, as the conditioners reduce the efficacy of silver. There is no need to panic if you have already done so as the film created by the conditioner will wash off next time.
