So last saturday I get a phone call from the owner of the property telling me that he's been informed that my horse has a cut on his leg. All my gear is in waterloo so I got out with whatever I find in the cupboard at home. I get out there and look at it and I cry. It's pretty bad, all gooy and bleeding and deep and covered in sand (must have happened during the night) so I call the vet out and she scrubs it and puts stuff on it and bandages it. She says to leave it on for 3 days then take it off and do nothing. I did that on wednesday and there was proud flesh (growing out) and it was yellow and sooooo gross, she did tell me this. So I leave it and this is what it looked like on wednesday when I removed the bandage.
And this is what it looked like friday (sorry the picture is blurry)
So I went and got copper sulphate, dermacleanse and cetrigen (purple spray). I put dermocleanse on, then put copper sulphate in the centre of the wound and the sprayed with purple spray.
What would you do with an injury like that??
