|The epsom salt poultice is super easy. Just mix the salt with water in a ratio that gives you a paste, warm it, and apply. When I used it on horses, I'd just soak a bandage in the mixture, put that on, and then put another dry bandage over top. You can also apply it directly.
For the clay poultice, it can be bought at places like Tractor Supply Co and applied directly. Then I'd wrap that with a plastic wrap (saran wrap) and then with vet wrap (self-adhesive bandage). I've used those on the ponies and myself to draw out infections or reduce inflammation and they've worked well. Never used it on the pups, though.
