I had the flu for the past week and just got out yesterday to see Addy for the first time. She had what looked like a nasty bite from one of the other two geldings she is pastured with. From what I can tell it just took off the hair- it's not deep. I didn't have any ointment so I put some MTG on it (it's supposed to help with wounds too). What do you think? Something I should call the vet about? Should I use something besides MTG? It probably needs something with medicine in it.
Nah, I wouldn't worry too much. It doesn't look very deep. When bites like that occur around our barn, we put a little Cut Heal or Schriener's on it. Keep an eye on it though, and call a vet if you get worried.
