Best treatment for cuts?

My TB mare is accident prone. Luckily usually just scratches and minor stuff. My question is what do you all use for cuts after they are healing but you want to have the hair grow back and the cut to disappear? I have used many different things but just thought I would throw it out there to see what everyone else finds the best. Thanks!

I always use Corona. It not only helps heal quickly but minimizes scarring.

You need to always be careful how deep the cuts are though. Clean it out really well. Apply a thick layer and leave it be.

It helps with the hair and on a dark horse will keep the hair turning white and on a light horse the hair from turning dark. Thankfully, or my black horse would look like an Appy.

I use stuff called Tri-Care from Farnum. I've used it for many years. I use it on the dogs too
I like it because its a combination antiseptic, pain reliever, and fly barrier,

I now absolutely love Cut-Heal. It's worked wonders on the Denster.

Nitrofurazone Dressing by Squire Laboratories
The brand I use is Amifur - it's bright yellow goopy stuff, it helps the hair grow back really well.

On open cuts I just scrub them with Betadine Scrub and then spray some Wonder Dust into the cut.

Unfortunately there are some products on the market that have become the commonly used ones but that we now know aren't really great options. Nitrofurazone is one of those. It actually slows healing and promotes proud flesh so it should not be used on leg wounds. Wonder Dust is another of those products that is mis-used. It is a caustic product that should ONLY be applied to wounds that already have proud flesh present. This is because it works by destroying cells and it's not picky, it destroys healthy healing cells as easily as it does proud flesh.

In-depth wound management was one of the topics at the 2006 AAEP conference. The lecturer stated that a plain triple antibiotic ointment was the best choice for the majority of wounds because it prevents infection and provides a good environment for healing tissues.

Hmmm I have never had a problem with them. Amifur has always helped the already closed wounds regrow hair and finish healing. Wonder Dust to my knowledge helps dry out the cuts, clot the blood and prevent proud flesh. Again I've never had a problem with it. Not saying you're wrong. Just what I've always used and works great IMO.
