Romeo was attacked.
My sweet as can be TB gelding Romeo was attacked in the pasture 2 days ago by my twins larger (gelded late) Dutch Warmblood. He now has 2 giant gashes across his back (not very deep), an area on his shoulder cut deep into, and a cut down his cannon. We called the vet out as soon as I drove to the barn and he has staples and stitches now, but I have to put cream on the areas for 10 days (till they are fully healed) and he is extremely sensitive. He doesnt act aggressive toward the pain but he is so flinchy it makes it difficult to put the cream on. Any ideas on how to sneek it on so it doesnt hurt him as much?
