The vet mentioned Swat and I think I'll pick some up on my way out to see Elsa again Saturday.
She has not been vaccinated for tetanus. I was told by the vet that she is too young at 2.5 months. She says she prefers to vaccinate at 4 months of age. That being said, her dam was vaccinated 30 days before her due date, so might there have been some passive transfer of immunity at the very least? We vaccinate all of our horses regularly so I'm just following what I've been told by my vet. I've got it marked in my calendar when she'll be exactly 4 months so I don't forget.
The flies here are pretty wicked and so it's been wrapped now. It's hard to see in the picture because I used white wrap. When I was washing it, there was no sign of infection and it actually looked a lot better than the pictures appear. It's mostly just pink skin with almost no scabs present anymore. There was a tiny bit of blood at the very bottom where it was a little bit raw, but otherwise it looked pretty good. And she's not lame. So that's also encouraging.
Do you think proud flesh would be something to worry about on this?
