Yes, it's better to open an abscess than let it blow out on its own. It's much less painful for the horse that way.
I can't imagine why the vet wouldn't pull another coggins. After all, why should they care whether or not the horse already had one from the auction? Since you can't find it and it had wrong info anyway, another one needs to be pulled if you want to take the horse off property.
You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
