I doubt your vet will have Resolve Wound - get it direct from the site.

ResolveWound | Prevent and Eliminate Proud Flesh In Horses

You will be astounded at the speed it cleans up the wound and how it encourages hair growth. They are confident enough to offer a money back if it doesn't work but, from experience - it will!
There are pictures of injuries far worse than yours and how they healed.

Foxhunter, I didnt realize I could order it right from the site. I will place an order for it... I also left a message for my vet as there seems to be some proud flesh growth today :(


The saddest part of it all is how quickly horses go down hill... my fat pretty mare has lost so much muscle tone in the past 2 week... and I just found out that the BO has cut back her feed from 2 large flakes of alfalfa to 1 at night because she "is just sitting".. so my my poor girl has not only lost all her muscle but she is dropping in weight. Not happy!!!

Just was curious as to the vet's opinion on it......I'm not a vet, just an RN who deals a lot with wound care in humans, and I sure as heck would never attempt to diagnose someone's horse perod, especially not over the internet Congrats on the incredible recovery!


Yes there was granulated flesh, which needed to occur in order to close the wound (this is what I understood from my vet). I haven't had a chance to post today's picture yet but today there is much more granulated flesh (excess as my vet puts it) than there was on tuesday. So I left a message for her to let her know that there is proud flesh developing.. I placed an order for that resolve wound that foxhunter suggested but i'm still waiting to hear what my vet will say as well. She originally said if it does turn into proud flesh that we will have to use an ointment with a steroid in it.


I just want my horse better :(

Today's update for those who are interested.... Her knee was a little swollen today and the whole wound was bloody. The proud flesh that was forming seems to have shrunk (although I think she actually chewed it off, yuck!).

Anyways... Put the steroid ointment on it and bandaged her whole leg up.... Vet says to change bandage daily and apply the steroid ointment until the skin has become a dry and smooth light pink.

I also placed an order for the resolve wound that foxhunter had so much success with but this is what we are doing while I wait for it.

I figured this thread could use some cuter pics rather than just yucky ones

I would tell your bo to up her feed back up if she is dropping weight. However good luck with the recovery she looks bright and happy.

Already talked about her feed and it has been brought back up. Today she did seem much more happy and in a good mood.. Although you could tell the itchiness of her leg was driving her nuts! More than anything though I think she is just super bored. The vet said because the wound is on the joint her movement has to be limited to hand walking once a day so it can heal.
