This Looks So Painful!

My poor horse has this nasty wound on his neck!
He got bit by another horse.
Its all swollen.

Poor baby boy, I feel so bad for him, it must have hurt!
It had a flap of skin covering it, but it got torn off. :(
He needs a vet, but she hasnt called me back yet!
Ugh.

Please tell me you've at least cleaned it and put some antibiotic cream on there?

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

from the picture it looks like it was shaved and cleaned with betadine...but that does look really bad, if you haven't already I would put some neosporin on it

Triple antibiotic creams (ie neosporin, polysporin) are completely ineffective. The best thing is to clean the wound thoroughly with plenty of water, saline and chlorhexadine and leave it open to the air while waiting for the vet.

To the OP - good luck! I hope you hear from your vet soon!!

Sunny had a wound like this, though a touch smaller and her skin tag remained intact. My vet had us clean it daily with water, then rinsed with betadine, then Nu-stock cream applied. He also prescribed us an antibiotic powder that we gave her for a month to prevent infections.

It is now healed, no scar or anything, and we had no complications.

Where did you learn this? Why are they ineffective?
