Can you use TCP on horses?
I know it used to sting really bad but having cut myself recently and used the stuff on myself I realised that they have got rid of the sting. I have to say, that I used TCP on my mare when she cut her leg and she certainly didn’t have a problem with it and it really is a very good antiseptic.
Can you use Dettol on horse?
Substances that should never be put on a wound include petroleum products, Stockholm tar, radiator fluid, Dettol or any other caustic materials – basically if you wouldn’t put it on yourself, don’t put it on your horse.

Can I use baby shampoo on my horse?
T is correct. Avoid baby shampoos. They’re typically less acidic than other shampoos designed for adults (or horses), and so aren’t the best choice for your horse’s skin. A better bet is a shampoo formulated for horses, with a neutral to slightly acidic pH.
How often do you need to bathe a horse?
Determining how often you should bathe your horse is often based upon personal preference and need, or even industry practice.
