HELP! Abcess on hoof area
we just got a new horse and I was grooming her today and noticed(under some dirt that I scraped off) that there is a squisy abcess and is warm to the touch. I rinsed it off and I did the most idiotic thing..I went to cut it open to drain it and I forgot to sterilize!!!! She was in pain but I got some pus and blood out and it seemed to be draining. I also gave her some bute.
We are calling the vet tomorrow so we can get it checked out cause it looks pretty bad since I washed it. It smells and she twitches and limps. The owner said that she had a cut and she was fine so i took her word for it and I so I was groominh her and took a look at it and it's a lump.
Will she be forever lame cause of this?
