I didn't know that! What's the 'rules' on that? Give them to it the same day or if they got their yearly shots they're good?

Really interested..

Horses that get annual vaccinations that include Tetanus Toxoid are usually OK, but The Vet I used for 25 years said an anti-toxin shot was cheap insurance (about $2.00), so we do it just in case they still do not have a good antibody level for Tetanus.

Thanks, Cherie. The accident just happened this morning, around 11:30, so it is wait and see what happens as far as further treatment. He is up on vacs, tetanus included, and there was no doubt he needed sutures as there was a clean v-cut forming a flap. I've pirated this thread enough, so will start new thread here when I have time in the next day or two, with pics when I replace bandaging on Monday, per vet directions. I will ask her about DMSO.

Don't use DMSO or any topical if your Vet stitched it.
