Things your horse, cow, dog, and cat can share!

 

There are not too many rules about what you have to use on your dog and cat and horse and maybe even cow – many products can be shared (gasp!) between the barn critters that you have.

  • A very important note about this – sharing medications is NOT OK, as some things are beneficial to one species and deadly to another. Aspirin is a great example – dogs can tolerate it, and aspirin will kill a cat. Always consult your veterinarian about medications. Dosages also vary wildly between species. But of other stuff – go nuts!

 

 

Lots of products to share between the horse, the dog, the cow, and the cat

 

dog slicker brush for sheepskin horse pad

 

  • Dog and cat slicker brushes are super for cleaning sheepskin saddle pads!

 

  • Toys! Well, the cats may not enjoy playing with a giant horse ball, but most dogs really dig playing with a horse toy.

 

tick removal tool

No more touching gross ticks.

 

  • Tick removal tools. I picked this handy tool up at the pet store, I have used it a kazillion times more on the horse than any barn animal!
 
  • Grooming gloves. Share the scratchy grooming goodness and use your curry combs and grooming gloves on the barn critters. Beware of skin conditions – these can be spread by shared grooming tools!

 

  • Mastitis meds that you can find at the feed store (for cattle) are sometimes good for treating thrush in horses. The applicator is perfectly designed to get into the grooves where thrush loves to live.

 

zeolites from sweet pdz in palm

Zeolites make everything smell better!

 

  • Stall refresher granules (zeolites) that eat ammonia smells are great to use in your cat’s litter box. No more stinky litter! Or use zeolites to combat musty and moldy smells around the barn.

 

  • Pine pellet bedding for horses also makes great litter for cats. 

 

  • Share blankets between mini horses and dogs!

 

  • The dog tag machines at pet stores can give you instant horse blanket ID tags, so you can be sure your horse’s blanket ends up on him.

 

purple lead rope with knotted end

Handy for horses and dogs, not so handy for cats.

 

Lead ropes make excellent leashes for dogs. Or cows. Or cats?
