Love, one of my horses, got out of the fence yesterday. My brother called to say that one of them was out and when I drove up there, she was trotting and appeared just fine.....until closer inspection! She had a few minor cuts on her shoulder, but her right hind fetlock had blood literally pouring out. I cleaned it out, put on a pressure dressing, and waited for the vet to come out. I LOVE my vet!! He said stitches weren't really necessary and wouldn't hold where it was cut anyway. He said to just keep it wrapped and clean. He gave me lots of wraps, tetanus, and ointment for the cuts....all for only $50!!
If that were to happen to my dogs or one of my kids, I would be paying $$$
It's amazing to me how well they can heal!
I had about 5 rides on this 3 y/o and she should heal up quickly and very nicely according to him. She is already loping around her pasture again. Just gotta keep her out of the fence!
