I have a 24yr old appaloosa who has equine melanoma. He has the typical skin tumors on his sheath which I can easily remove with raw honey but he also has an open sore about the same shape and size as a small chicken egg. Its nasty and unsightly and I am afraid it will open more and cause problems. My personal vet AND a vet at the biggest veterinary school in the state says its "better left alone". My vet said "At his age, something else will kill him, not this." But I don't want them just pushing this off because of his age. He could live well into his 30's! But he probably won't if I can't get this sore to heal up. I am at my wits end trying to find something that will help.
I don't want to lose my best friend
Has anyone had any experience with difficult cancer cases like this? What did you use? I wish I had a picture to share but I won't be able to take one until tomorrow. ANY advice is welcomed. Thanks so much.
