The vet and farrier were here early 11:15 just left at 12:30. The hoof was very infected and was deep within the hoof. Vet took xrays and it showed were the infection was,plus hoof testers. The farrier had too pare out a good part of the hoof to reach the infection and boy did the pus come gushing out. The vet did drug my horse before the hoof was worked on,the hoof was flushed out with antibiotics and then packed the huge hole with antibiotic soaked gause then wraped his hoof up,plus his leg was wraped too help get the swelling down. I have to change the wrap every day plus flush out the hole with antibiotics then repack it for the first seven days vet wants that done twice a day. He has to stay in the barn no turnout for a while just hand walking twice a day for ten minutes. Hes also on oral antibiotics plus bute for pain ,which he has not putting any weight on that foot hes three legged lame no hand walking tell he will at least put some weight on it. Vet will be back on friday to check on how hes doing.The vet did tell me had i not gotten this taken care of it would of been bad news another four days and the out come would of been not good.
