Our first Abscess!
Well, my first abscess that is, may not be hers. Farrier came out yesterday, poked around and the abscess is found and draining. The farrier flushed it out and packed the tiny hole with cotton. This morning I went out to check on her and picked her hoof and the cotton came out and drained a tinyyyyyyy bit. Not even a drip but could see the wet.
Anyway, my question is, do I leave it or flush it and replace the cotton?? Seems like it would plug and not drain that way but hey, what do I know. LOL.
Farrier says it came out at a great spot, side of toe at white line. So that's a plus. What do you all think?
Oh and when will she stop limping and stand on it? I need to get some shoes on that girl!!!
