Acey just did something similar on Monday, so the timing on this thread is perfect.

She's all stitched up, I'm wondering if it's safe to put over stitches?

WOW! kudos to you for sticking through that awful ordeal, drifter must have been in alot of pain, that wound looked terrible! I will definetly be buying some underwoods to keep on hand "just in case". Good luck with the scar tissue buildup, keep us posted as to his progress please!

Wow.. that looked bad at first but he's come a long way! Thankfully I've never had any bad injuries where I'd have to think about this, but Underwoods seems like a great product to use. Drifter is looking so much better now!

Sherkad- I buy underwooda from our local co op.

MHF- good idea, thanks! I will look into that.

He has good days and bad days as far as the scar tissue goes. Some days it is hardly noticeable and others it is obviously uncomfortable. I check the injury site constantly for tenderness, etc and he has never shown pain to the touch so I will start trying massage. Thanks y'all!!

Horse mom- I am not sure if it is safe to put over stitches. This injury was my first experience with it and it could not be stitched. Our vet recommended it us for that reason. i would assume it is safe for over stitches but maybe someone who knows for sure will chime in and help you out

We have used it many times. I always keep it around. Buddy Underwood just lives a few miles from us and we have known him for over 30 years. I know of nothing better for flesh wounds. I have other things I like better below the knee or hock, but if muscle is involved or the area has been 'degloved', I have never seen anything an better.

I have never seen a wound get infected or have not seen flies bother one bad after I started using it.

You get best results if you NEVER put water on it after the initial clean-up -- NEVER. Never clean it up in between applications. Just wipe the scabs off with a dry paper towel and re-apply it and put plenty of baking powder on it while it is still wet with the medicine.

Here is a link to Buddy's website showing some of the horses it has healed up. I have seen some of these horses that are shown. He has healed up several horses that the Vets had said needed to be put down. We know one like that went back to being a top team roping horse.
