Hi everyone, speaking of wounds, one of my horses bit the other horse. They've been separated and will remain that way. I rinsed out the wound and put Wound Kote on it. It's not deep, but a couple of layers of skin is off. I don't know how to post pictures. You could see the flesh. I gave him some antiboitic for 3 days, (that's all I had left). I think the wound is healing, but can't see thru the purple. It feels hard and those pesty little nats are on it. How can I soften the scab. It doesn't look infected. The area around the purple looks fine. Will skin so soft be ok to put on the hard surface of the wound. This happened on Monday, 7 days ago.

Sorry I haven't updated for a while.

Poor pony is still not healing correctly. She had 3 days worth of intra-muscular injections before she lost her mind and decided that wasn't happening again.

She was switched to a under the skin antibiotic for 5 days. Now the wound appears to be closing up, but the leg is still hot and swollen.

She has been seen by the vet 7 times in the last 2 weeks and has now been referred to a vet clinic about 2 hours away for ultrasounds to check for foreign bodies and if nothing shows up there they will be taking cultures to check for drug resistant nasties.

For a wound that looked relatively minor, it is turning out to be quite difficult.

Healing vibes for the poor pony. I was hoping it was all better by now. It sure looked better after the drain was put in.

Yep, everything was headed in the right direction for the 2 days after the drain was put in. Then things just didn't look right.

The drain was taken out about a week ago and since then the swelling is all coming back. The vet's first thought was that maybe he had been a bit hasty about taking the drain out and that there was still fluid behind the wound that was trapped.

However, he stuck a needle in it today and tried to get fluid out and came up with absolutely nothing, so the swelling is coming from something else.

If it is a foreign body, vet thinks it has gone in quite deep so the clinic she has been referred to will need to ultrasound to locate it and then go in surgically to remove it.

Poor pony owner has only had her for about 4 weeks.

Awe that's got to be hard for the owner especially being a new owner. I just hope that Hunter doesn't hurt himself like that. Sending healing vibes for pony
