How long do sprains/strains last?
About how long does it take a sprain/strained muscle to heal?
It's a really small one on her ankle type area on her front leg. She either has a small small sprain, or pulled a muscle somewhere. She barely moves lame, just slightly off. Yesterday we were stopping in new dirt, and when we stop we think she twisted it funny because she walked out head bobbing lame. Then today it was barely noticeable but its there, and we noticed swelling and puffyness.
We're going to cold hose it of course, she's on bute and stall rest for now.
How much will wrapping help if its small? It's going to be really hot (our first heat wave) out so I really don't want to make her more uncomfortable than she needs to be.
