Ok all, I just had to share these pictures. This injury is about 10 months old at this point, so don't panic but I fully contribute this awesome healing to Underwoods and I just had to share the word because even now (10 months later!!) the scar is STILL getting smaller. And we've got hair!! Oh, I love it It's the simple things in life right? Anyways, I have more pictures of the injury progression on my other computer but I will try to get those posted later as well.
Backstory: Drifter ripped himself open on a gate latch. He pulled about 6 inches of muscle out. Vet came out on emergency call and cut the muscle that was hanging out off. The first two pictures are of this day. The third picture is about 8 weeks later. We took him to an equine acupuncturist because we thought every little bit could help in this situation. The flap of muscle poking its ..head?..out of the hole was eventually manipulated back into the wound by our vet.
The fourth picture is about 5 or 6 months after the initial injury I believe. The last picture is a few short days ago. I really need to get the other pictures because I documented it almost every other day, and it is amazing to see the healing process and changes.
The point of this is that I've recently heard a lot of people saying they are iffy about underwoods because you arent supposed to wrap, cover, etc when using it. It sketched me out a little at first as well, but it worked fantastic! We also would pack Drifter's wound with antibiotics when using the Underwoods.
I will try to post the pics from my other computer soon, because I have posted these pics of this wound before. I just wanted to reiterate how awesome it REALLY, REALLY is. Hopefully tomorrow or Thursday I will have the other pictures.
(Drifter and I are all about product placement apparently! This, plus our great experience with Vitamin A with curing rainrot and ranitidine to help stomach ulcers. I just love 'documenting' stuff. I need that hard proof to look back at later and say 'yes ok. I wasn't crazy. There was a difference'
