Wow, that swelling is incredible! I would definitely be concerned about proud flesh as it heals. Has the vet given you any caustics ahead of time?

i was concerned about proudflesh as well but when i mentioned it she said looking at it.. it doesn't look like i will have to worry about it... once the wrap comes off i do have Vetericyn which i have had good experience with in the past that i will use on it.

Fortunately today my girl seems to be in better spirits! She's not moping around in pain the way she was yesterday.

I took her for a very short walk just up and down the stall aisle like the vet suggested and she seemed to be limping much less. Of course it's hard to tell what she's really walking like with the compression wrap but she is definitely bearing more weight than she was yesterday.

Tomorrow evening we take the wrap off to see how everything is looking and go from there. Fingers crossed she's on the right track!

From a fellow owner with an injured mare also, I wish her the speediest of recoveries. I agree with your vet, that wound looks "older" like it's been there a while. I think the tissue might look a litte better had it been found and cleaned out earlier. I would also be annoyed at whoever didn't catch that.

Vetricyn is amazing!! My mare tore open the outside of her knee and it got such horrible scar tissue :( That was in the summer time though and we didn't have Vetricyn back then ;) Best of luck to your mare!! I'd ask for caustics just in case. And expect it to take a while for healing, major joints like that can take a while

Your poor mare. Hoping for a speedy recovery!

I might have missed it, but what kind of fence was it?

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.
