summer sore

Somebody gave me a red roan appy with a horrid summer sore on his sheath ( she said she had him tested for cancer with negative results), I've had him for right around a month, I've been deworming the wound, redkote,honey and antibiotic treatment. I thought it was getting better and then tonight found maggots in the wound. Please help any suggestions would be great, this horse was obviously neglected when he got to me and im trying to get him better but if I cannot I will give him to someone who has more know how than me. Also he can pee fine and is not underweight

Yes, definitely get a vet out. If there are insects inthe wound,I would classify this as urgent.

It's not an urgent vet situation if it is a summer sore. One vet already missed that. The only caveat here is "if".

What type of dewormer are you putting on it? Needs to be ivermectin. Get rid of the other stuff you are slathering on it. You can double dose him orally with ivermectin as well. I would keep up rubbing ivermectin on the open sore until it clears up. You should be able to get rid of it in a week. You are seeing the larvae because where they are laid does not allow them to complete their life cycle. They have nowhere to go. It will help with the flies die for the year too. It should go away on it's own if you have winter but I wouldn't wait. Sometimes those open persistent wounds morph into something really bad.
