Not anymore, no. For the first 3? Weeks he was on 2 grams twice a day, then he moved down to 1 gram twice a day, eventually 1 gram once a day, and just recently (maybe 4 days ago) we moved down to no Bute.

Doc is coming out to treat proud flesh tomorrow, we are letting it air out overnight tonight and only put equaide on without a bandage. Poor boy is getting restless!

I'm like 90% sure that has gangrene. I'd would have had my vet out like, yesterday! If your looking to save time and $ you can trailer him to the 1st available vet.

If there was gangrene wouldn't it be black/blue and have an odor? I dropped off the same pictures to my vet and he said nothing about gangrene...

Wow! That does not look pretty! Good luck on recovery. Any updates?

Awesome little remedy for proud flesh is fura-zone and lime, it ends up looking like chunky peanut butter but it works really well. At this stage of the healing it may be a bit to harsh for the new flesh that is growing in but is definitely an option once it heals up some more. Sounds weird but I swear it works.
He sounds like a total trooper and I hope his recovery continues well. Good luck to both of you :)

Good luck in his recovery- not a pretty wound. How's he doing?
