Can't tell really, but is she getting proud flesh?

Not sure of she is getting proud flesh or not.. She does have granulated tissue but its not really raised and yesterday when I cleaned it with Betadine and water it seemed like the larger chunks of granulated flesh were like falling off and disintegrating. My barn owner who was more concerned about proud flesh than the vet doesn't seem to think its going to be an issue just yet... But I've never dealt with proud flesh personally so I don't know...

Check out the success that Foxhunter has had using Resolve Wound care - impressed me

I would never be without the Resolve Wound!!!!!

I have been around horses a long time and have seen many injuries, the one this yearling suffered was certainly high on the list of spectacular although not the most serious.

Gp to the injury site and have a look at the original injury and then of the one taken about three weeks ago. Now it is less than 2" and will probably be totally healed by the end of the month.

This is all down to Resolve Wound. I have never had injuries like this heal so fast and, even more surprising is how it is barely going to scar.

It is so easy to apply and not being an astringent the horses do not mind the application.

My vet originally thought it would be at least Christmas before it was anything like coming together - he was shocked when he saw how good it was looking - so much so that he went off with some to use on another horse.

Thanks foxhunter! I will check out the local vet supply and see if I can find some...

Yesterday when I went out there was a scab covering the whole thing so i'm hoping she doesnt itch it off again. If its gone today then I will be rewrapping it and see if it does better.

Okay I called the local vet supply as well as the other 3 local feed/supply stores and none of them cary resolve wound :(

Imo the wound looks to be granulating well. I will caution you against using betadine solution to clean it as it actually prevents healing. Fluorhexadine or Hibitaine is what you want to be using.
As well if she is rubbing off the scabs, keep it wrapped. It will be really itchy at this point so just to keep the itch down, use some of the clear polysporin underneath the non stick pad in the wrap.

It looks really good to me, just keep her little mouth off it haha poor girl :(

Thanks anebel! I had no idea betadine solution prevented healing :( ughh!

I will make sure I get over there and get it wrapped today. We've been having strangely warm weather as well so those flies are what is making it itch the most I think. Thanks for your help!

So my BO suggested trying Blue Kote on my mares leg on Sunday to try to prevent flys from irritating and making it itch.

Here is after two days of use... The skin is starting to smooth out rather than having the bumpy appearance.

I always keep blu-kote on hand. Treats a variety of different things. Glad to see your horse finally healing up :)
