I got home today and found Ahab to be quite lame in his right hind. There is no swelling or heat in his leg until the hoof; then there is heat. I cleaned his hoof and looked around, and there appears to be a puncture wound up in the rear of the frog, up by his heel bulb, but still on the bottom. I soaked it in Epsom salts, and gave him some Bute: should I shoot some Bacetracin or Neosporin up there, or should I wait to hear from the vet?
Anyone with any experience in this department?
