He's had a slightly severe case before which required bandaging (my father has dealt with so many cases of this, I trust him wholey that he was giving me correct advice) Because I've read in some places bandaging is a BIG no no. My horse is paddocked, god knows what he could get in that open crack!
Once again, my horse has a large crack or 'split' in his heel about 4cm long in the folds of skin, its quite open and very recently just appeared overnight. I am currently cleaning it with Peroxide to kill infection, then applying Betadine anti-septic ointment then Vaseline for a barrier then applying glad wrap then a co-hesive equine bandage. - the glad wrap, bandage & copper sulfate lotion worked 100% last time. This time I am all out of the lotion, therefore I have replaced it with Peroxide, Betadine & Vaseline.
I was just wondering if there is ANYTHING else I can do to provoke healing at all? I'm not looking at overly expensive products or products that are hard to get, any other little home remedy out there to help just a little bit more :) thanks!
