Keep it pristine clean. & Dont let any dirt in it. Shes likly to have a scar. But theres MANE+TAIL brand Wound cream that can be found at GREENHAWK, Small price and helps clean and heal quick!

Granulex spray. It is fantastic, especially for puncture wounds like that. You will become a hardcore fan when you see how well and how quickly it works. Not suturable, for sure. If you felt the need to give her some smz's for 10 days, and a tetanus shot may be a good idea. I've heard Manuka honey is great, I've never used it.

The Granulex won't leave a trace of proud flesh, and you won't need any antibiotics if you use it. Another product I like for that type of wound is Tri-Care. If the iodine stings, you can rinse the wound out with Betadine instead. I like colloidal silver for that too.

The benefit of the iodine spray is that i can quickly spray it on and she will tolerate it, whereas something I have to dab on there is becoming a nightmare! Ill have to try the Granulex spray- maybe order it online as I have never heard of it

I have had dozens of horses cut themselves at my place. When they are running on 2000 acres thats all I can expect! But anyways after about a week more with iodine spray, I would move to using a spray on Cut Heal, Wound Heal, there's a hundred names for it. Its made out of Fish Oil, Linseed Oil and Turpentine for the most part. It helps to dry out the wound and seal the scab.
