Doc had very positive things to say! We are treating the proudflesh growth with Equaide, and still using 1 telfa pad of intra cell at the bottom where there isn't proudflesh, to encourage cell growth. Jaxx is going to get his front feet done tomorrow! We are pulling the shoes too. Doc also said the use of his leg is monumental! All pretty good news :)

Yes I love it! We are also taking him off the Bute. Dependent on how he is during his next bandage change, but if he's worse without Bute he will get Bute on mornings of the chane days.

Oh lucky you! My girl's on bute for a long while yet - she was actually on it for an unrelated issue before she hurt herself - but thankfully she's really easy to get to eat it. She's a really un-fussy eater, once she's tried something she doesn't hesitate to eat it again even if it's gross... but she's hard to get to try things lol.

Jaxx eats his Bute if it's mixed with a little sweet feed. We had trouble feeding him uniprim though, but if we mixed it with molasses he ate it right up!

I don't even have to mix with sweet feed or molasses or anything. Magic's just goes into a normal feed [grain and chaff]. She doesn't hesitate, just digs straight in and cleans it up. My gelding is much the same but the difference is he'll try anything you offer him... anything... hahahaha

I have no idea what uniprim is - I'm Australian, we have different names for some things.

I need to get a photo of Miss's leg tomorrow. It'll be 13 days post-injury and I didn't get a photo when she first did it [my first thought was, let's see how bad it is, does she even need the vet? And then second thought was, yep, needs stitches, call the vet - photos didn't even come into it until 2 days ago] but I'm interested to see what happens regarding scarring.

Uniprim is an oral antibiotic powder. Jaxx starting getting that after his 2 weeks of penicilin shots. He's a picky eater about some things but he doesn't have a problem with Bute most of the time!

Ohhhh ok. My girl's getting oral antibiotic paste. She won't eat it mixed with her feed which I actually find really surprising because the easiest way to worm her is to just stick the wormer in her feed!

Miss was heavily sedated when the vet gave her the long-acting short-acting anti-b shots, and STILL kicked up a fuss. Even immunisation shots and Pentosan shots are impossible without a twitch and if you've ever had an antibiotic shot you know it hurts like hell! [Pentosan doesn't, strangles shots apparently don't, tet vax does]. That's why the vet said give her oral anti-b's. She's at the point where the wound doesn't HAVE to be covered [it's healing awesomely and has a good scab] but I'm trying to keep it covered anyway to keep the flies off... Australia and our bloody flies I tell ya!
