Okay so 2 fridays ago my horse some how managed to cut her leg. The vet said that it was a puncture that turned into a tear. So she had to cut the skin flap off that was below the cut since it would have "died" anyway. She todl me to put fura-zone (bright yellow stuff) on it and then bandage it and wrap it, and change it every other day. So I was doing that up until this past saturday when my friend came out with me and said it started to look like proud flesh was starting to grow, so we put wonder dust on it and wraped it again. The problem that I've been having throughout this past week was that the bandage would continually slip, and im not jsut talking about the track wrap and cotton, the whole thing would. So everytime I would unwrap it I would have to pull the whit cotton wrap off of the wound...which obviously isnt good at all. So 2 days ago I removed the wrap again to change it/see if had slipped and it had, so I put wonder dust on it and left it unwraped and went out to check it yesterday. The wonder dust had hardened on the wound, so im not really sure what I should do. I didnt want to jsut pick off the scab like thing in case that would really hurt it. And I know picking off a scab cause hurt the tissue and cause new tissue to not grow/stop growing. I did apply more wonder dust though.
So now im asking what should I do? The swelling has come back since I havent wrapped it too. Please help! I probably sound like a terrible horse owner but I just don't know anything about having to treat wounds and stuff like that!
