Romance has sustained a puncture to her hoof and whatever it was that punctured appears to have hit the pedal bone and possibly fractured it. She has been seen by both vet and farrier who both agree regarding both injury and treatment so she's had a course of antibiotics to ward off infection and is shod with a bar shoe on the injured foot. She has been poulticed to draw all the muck out, but is now just dry bandaged to stop any dirt getting into the puncture wound. At this stage she has not had x-rays done as vet believes they would not change the treatment anyway. Obviously, if she stops improving, or worsens vet will be consulted again and x-rays will likely occur.
Just wondering whether anybody has dealt with an injury similar to this and if so roughly how long recovery took? I know we're more than likely in the "months" time frame, just curious for others experiences.
