Good to hear it might be just shallow. We had a stallion who in his old age started getting abcesses in his back feet. We had a vet dig deep on one side of the hoof to get at an abcess only to have it blow out the coronet band on the opposite side of the foot. We did allot of soaking like everyone else mentioned with Epsom salts and iodine and we also massaged DMSO into his coronet to get the stubborn abcess to draw it out. Because of the deep hole left we sugerdine (white suger and iodine mix) packed his sole using baby diapers with duct tape for a little protective booty that works great. Vet wrap on gauze kept the upper hole clean. It takes some practice, but you will be a pro at wrapping feet and lower legs in no time if you
Need to keep things clean.
