So the vet came out and was not too concerned about it.. he gave my horses their fall shots and told me to soak the scab on top really well and then try to pick it off.. then we would see what is underneath..
Anyways so I have been soaking this thing for 3 hours and it's not really much softer
I just put a very wet rag and vet-wrapped around it (not tightly) and came back like 2 hours later and did the same thing letting her walk around with nothing on for 5 minutes..
Since I just checked and it's stil not soft enough, I decided to leave the "dressing" on for the night and will see how it looks in the morning.. but he said that if this doesn't work he will have to come back and doze her and cut that thing off
I really want to avoid drugging her right now, so I am praying the soak will work overnight better..
ALSO, after the vet left we noticed a different kind of some on the inside of her upper lip.. I tried to google that and it seems to me like that one could be "summer sore"... I don't have a picture, but it looks just like this: strange sores on lips...
I had just wormed her last Saturday and have been worming her religiously every 30 days.. this last dose had Ivermectin in it.. so I am hoping this will help..
