    Day 3

    Bear was moving a LOT better. The area was pretty swollen, but after cold hosing it for 20 minutes the swelling went down a lot. The nolvasan is working so well, I will have to buy some more (even though it is $50 for a little jar of it). No pictures, sorry.

    I will give you guys another update this afternoon/tonight. It looks pretty good, a little swollen, but nothing bad.

    2 yrs ago one of my geldings had a huge 8 inch gash on his back leg (never figured our how he got it) He lost skin in the accident and the vets couldn't stitch it together and had to cut remaining skin off:( Anyway after 10 days of cleaning it and applying ointment, which kept it soft and gooey I found a product called Wonder Dust by Farnum. It shrunk the wound overnight from 8 inches to 3 inches and cured it in short order. Ask your vet about it. It is about 7 dollars and I always keep it handy. You just puff the powder on the wound.

    Would love a photo update when you get a chance. Thanks for posting - I find every one of these wound threads really informative. And from what it sounds like, you're doing an excellent job of taking care of it.

    It's not horrible, but it's definitely one of those wounds that is actually worse then it looks. That's a super tender area, close to a lot of muscles, and the swelling is unreal. Much more painful for the poor boy - at least when my mare gashed her lower leg, I didn't have to deal with lameness. I HATE lameness injuries because you risk further injury if they try to overdo it.

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery, that makes me wince just looking at it!
