Don’t know if I’m doing something wrong, I followed the instructions, but the patch certainly didn’t stick at all! Very disappointed. The area was thoroughly cleaned & dry. Then I applied the patch to the wound rubbed to activate glue... but unfortunately no sticking here. 😭
Very sorry to hear this feedback! We have sent out thousands of these wraps and had very good feedback on them. I believe you may have received a faulty wrap by chance, I have contacted you via email to offer a solution to this issue and happy to send out replacement wraps :)
The essential wraps are quick and easy to do, much quicker than a traditional dressing and bandage and no scissors required to remove. The thing I like the most is how light weight they are which means they don't slip down. Because they are light and not bulky you can easily use them under a stable bandage or therapy boot. I will definitely keep these in my first aid kits from now on.
Recently one of my horses cut his leg just at the bottom of the front of his hock which required the traditional method of bandaging to go up over the hock to the upper leg to keep the dressing in place. I couldn’t work him with a bandage above his hock as it would restrict movement in that leg.
I’d heard about Essential Wrap but was dubious as to if it could last on a horses leg at all especially out in the paddock or while being ridden and still heal the wound but gave it a try anyway.
I have to say the Essential Wrap is one of the BEST wound dressings I have used!!
Super quick and easy to apply and it lasts for days in the paddock (even in the pouring rain). Due to the stretch, adhesive ‘glue’ and lightweight material, the horse is able to be worked without any bi-mechanical restrictions on that leg back and to my surprise, there is already hair growing back over the injury site whilst the leg is still covered up.
The Essential Wrap is a fantastic product and now has a permanent spot in our horse first aid box!!
