I would think that price would be less than a single vet call, plus the horse would be further along than it is now.
    I'm sorry, but you haven't seen this horse in person, and, to my knowledge, you are not a vet. So while your product may be amazing, it is really quite rude to push it so hard onto someone who has already stated that they are following their VET'S advice - a medical professional.

    Even though the wound has entered the gross stage you can definitely tell it is trying to heal! =)

    Thanks Chiilaa.

    The thing for me is that there are countless "miracle" wound products out there, with every single one of them having a string of success stories behind them. There are products local to me that people will swear black and blue are simply the greatest thing ever.

    It comes down to a few simple things. Firstly, being that we are officially in the silly season, getting something shipped across the world in a timely fashion? Unlikely. Yes, normally it may only take 7-10 days, but Australia's post system at christmas time is, well it puts the snail back in snail mail.

    Secondly, I have personal experience using honey on ugly wounds. It is truly fantastic stuff. As long as my qualified vet says honey is the way to go, that's the way I shall go. I'm corresponding with my vet every few days, if at any point we need to change to something else I am quite certain she will point me in the right direction.

    And lastly, it's an ugly, ugly wound. It is going to look worse before it looks better. Granulation tissue is a necessary and healthy part of wound healing. It doesn't become "proud flesh" until it is excessive granulation tissue. At this point that is not something we are dealing with. It is certainly a possibility at some point, however I have personally used honey for controlling proud flesh as well, so we may not encounter it. If we do, once again, I will consult with my vet.

    Day 10, we've lost a couple of stitches, but everything is holding together...

    Oh, and I figured so it's not all gross, here's the boy when he's not trying to cut his legs off...

    It sure isn't pretty but looks to be in heavy healing mode. The last pic looks promising. Jingles headed your way!

    Thanks MHF. Yep, it was the cleanest it's been so far at bandage change today and there's a LOT of healthy skin starting to grow, so I think we've hit major healing time!
