Stiches Re-opened and drama plz!
my horse had injured his upper, front, left leg about a week ago and he had to get stiches on the inner layer of tissuse and the outer layer of tissuse. Yesterday when I looked at it because we try to clean it up a bit and monitor it since and he re-opened his wound. My boarding lady, Camile, says I cant do anything except take the stiches out myself and put scarlet oil on it and around it. I called my vet and she said that it was normal to be pussing out a foam and liquid type puss and the spot that it is in, is normal to reopen but she cant restich it because of how long it has already been. She also told us to get Granulex V and spray it on there twice a day. My worries went away a bit after that....until
I sprayed it on there and the boarding lady came running out and asked me what i was spraying and not to spray that on it because it drys it up and that it needs to heal on its own and that i should trust her because she has had horses all her life and seen this a lot and he is fine.
I told her i talked to the vet and what she(the vet) told me to do and she still said no thats not right...and I would rather listen to my vet because she has the degree and has dealt with this forever..but the boarding lady seems to not want to corropurate and doesnt let me spray it on him.
When I sprayed it though it looked like it was cleaning it up so well..and it made me feel so releived...what do i do? plz help..
