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!
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.
