Last summer my gelding cut open the heel of his front right foot on the fence. My barn owner was very helpful in treating it. It took a LONG time to heal because of it's location. Proud flesh developed but we got rid of most of that as well. It healed as a bump with a scar.
Now to the important part. My crazy horse has manged to re-injure the exact same spot! This time I think he over stepped and ripped it open. The fence he originally injured himself on has since been fixed. Anyways, I would like to avoid the long healing process we went through last year. I'm looking for ideas to encourage faster healing and avoiding proud flesh growth.
This happened about 4 days ago. I've been cleaning it, applying furazone and bandaging it. He does rip the bandage off just about everyday though. Here are a couple of pictures I took of the injury today after I cleaned it. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
