The other day when I went to the barn I noticed that Sonny's penis area was all bitten up and bloody. Well I cleaned it off with warm water and then after I finished riding him I hosed that area off and made sure I put some fly spray there (I put some on a glove and then rubbed it on the areas that was fly bitten). On Tuesday I did the same...washed that area off and then put fly spray on it.
Here's the picture from the other day: (kinda blurry I know)
Then today I noticed the area was all swolleen and nasty...no dried blood or anything, but it just looked reallly bad.
I called the vet (after 4 dropped calls and on Digital Roaming which charges us more per minute) and she said that they got lots of calls recently on that...and it's just from the flys biting it and it's got a little infection. She said just put some fly spray on it and give him some bute and he should be fine.
So we washed off the arena, put some fly spray on it...and then gave him some bute.
Is there anyother thing I should do to treat this?
Also what fly spray do you all recommend. The BO buys Bronc and that's what I've been using...Bronc seems to work on her horses...but not Sonny :(
I put some SWAT on that area because it seems to keep away the bugs better but I don't want to keep using my pink SWAT (hehe) on that large of area.
Thanks in advance
