Hi everyone, one of my horses was diagnosed with DSLD, and a suspensory tear. She's to be on stall rest for a long time with her legs wrapped, sweated, poulticed and supported for at least 1 month, possibly up to 3 months.
I am well educated in wrapping correctly and I always use no-bows with a high quality flannel polo, however only for trailering or for a couple of days for a minor strain or small injury. This is significantly more extensive, the wraps need to be much tighter, and the effectiveness of the treatment will determine if she heals or gets worse.
Can you guys tell me which poultices you use that are SAFE UNDER BANDAGES? Also what brand of no-bows do you suggest? I'm not sure that mine are of sufficient quality to be that snug on her leg for that long.
Also need a recommendation on a good track/stable bandage. Again, I own several pair but they are tack store closeouts. My veterinarian said it is NOT ok to use flannel polo bandages for this purpose, so that possibility is out. (Too bad because I just bought 6 new sets of those!
I'm not looking to go cheap or get deals. I just want the best products for the sitaution, regardless of cost.
Thanks in advance for suggestions!
