Do keep in mind that weight bearing does NOT necessarily mean improvement! He could have learned how to tolerate the pain, become numb to it, or infection could have killed off any pain receptors (The way a third degree burn does).
This looks so much worse than it was. Healing wounds don't triple in size.
That's what I was thinking. It's not normal for wounds to get bigger like that, unless there was some type of the trauma beneath the skin, the skin died and rotted away leaving this large wound. Posted via Mobile Device
The pic of the wrapping was not me. I wrap from hock to fetlock and up again. No slippage. The original wound exploded in proud flash from infection. The infection is gone but he is still on antibiotics. Dressing is changed daily and he is no longer in pain (and is eating again!). The first week if he walked you could hear the grunting from the house (and he went from a body scale of 5 to about 3-2 in a week). The proud flesh had been removed. I wont be able to acquire pics or vid until Friday :(. The vet is pleased with his recovery so far, we are just waiting for the wound to close.
Also keep in mind that pic is over a week and a half old. The bandage had slipped causing it to scab and its yellow because of a salve the vet put on.
