Hi there, I am a new (first time) horse owner and I have a 8 month old horse that tried to jump the fence and has a cut on her front leg below the knee. Its a deglove injury exposing the bone.
I called the vet and was told to keep it wrapped and I purchased some penicillin and tetanus shots. I forgot to ask a few questions.
1 How much should I let her walk around (should I keep her penned up? Should I walk her some?)
2 And if I am to limit her mobility, how long do I keep her penned up?
3 Should I try to get her something for the pain?
Thanks for the help.
