Reducing Scarring

Hi All,

I am just wondering, what can you feed a horse, to help reduce scarring? Zanath went crazy while I was lunging her just now, ripped the lunge line out of my hands, and went into the fence, god she is an idiot. We have checked it out, and was very lucky, with no deep or serious wounds. Just wondering what can feed her to help reduce the chance of scarring.

Cheers.

Hmm....I don't know about feeding them something to stop scarring but I have heard that if you put vasiline on a cut it will help reduce scarring and/or help a cut that has already scarred to become more flexible.

Try using 100% Aloe Vera it is very natural product and extremely effective, just rub it onto the area do not put it in her food. Good Luck

Hi,

Have never heard of anything to feed a horse for scarring, however,
I have tried many products to help the healing process, including fresh bacon fat.
Have come across a product called "ABC JELL" from a health food shop. Not sure if ou can get it where you are from, it is wonderfull stuff, but takes time.
My old boy cut his back leg, on a fence, have applied the jell, hair is growing back, normal colour, scars has reduced by 50 per cent all ready, was unsure if I could show him again, by the looks of it I will be able too.
(he has won many champion ribbons in led and ridden)
This product got rid of a cancerous growth on a horse that the vets wanted to put down, the growth fell off. Horse is now doing dressage.
If you can get it, it is worth giving it a try, cost in Australia is about $20.00

Hope this helps.

If the horse is prone to "proud flesh" you might want to talk to your vet and get some of that cream that prevents it. Proud flesh is the fast growing scar tissue that makes big lumps in the scar. Most horses will get proud flesh if the cut is bad.
