I heard about Vet Wrap from a friend and got some. Great stuff. Basic use is for wrapping the legs of horses but it has other uses. It sticks to itself when wrapped. I use it to wrap my thumb when I am carving with a knife. If there is a slip the wrap saves the thumb. Also any time I have a finger cut and apply a bandaid I cover that with some Vet Wrap and the bandaid will last most of the day while working in the shop. It is available at most tack shops or, I guess, from a veterinary. I got 2 rolls near Lancaster, PA. for about 1.75 per roll and a roll will last for quite a while.

Red Cross uses a similar wrap to hold the pad covering needle hole, lately they have been switching more to
bandaids. I could not find the wrap a few years ago, but I understand some Drug stores, prescription areas in
big stores are now handling it. I could only find the 3” roll at the local farm and ranch store vet section and
sliced it into 1” wide sections. It does work great to hold those bandaids on that sweat tends to make fall off

I also could only find the 3 inch size & also used the scissors. But it does work well for keeping my thumb intact.
