Painful abscess 10 days! Ruptured today with no relief.
After 10 days of trying to draw out an abscess that was too deep to find, it finally ruptured today at the heel bulb. It is nasty with a very foal odor. I have had other horses have an abscess before with almost immediate relief. Is it normal that "Ace" has experienced no pain relief from what I can see. Has anyone experienced this before or have suggestions? I was so excited that the rupture had finally happened, but it breaks my heart that he is still in significant pain. Thank you so much!
