Well I believe Classy has Scratches :( never before the 10 years I have owned her has she had anything wrong with her and now that I moved her down to GA with me its starting :( I honestly never heard of this before until recently researching it. I have some pics to show as well! It looks like it has gotten a bit better and I noticed it probably about a week and a half ago wasnt sure what it was so didnt start treating it until last week! She has some swelling in the leg now but didn't before. Any suggestions other than what I am doing?
I'm sure she got it from her pasture. Here in GA we have had rain jsut about everyday and the paddocks have been muddy off and on. She is stalled during the day and turned out in the evening but there are no dry areas to be honest.
What I have been doing the past 2 days. Wash with Viodine shampoo. Dry really well, apply fungus topical, apply betidine/water solution, let dry then put desitin on top. I just started this yesterday and it looked better after I had it cleaned and doctored up. I also read somplace to use a mixture of Cortizone, Neosporin and desitin as well....any other suggestions other than keeping in dry paddocks? I know that is the best but honestly when it rains there is no dry places other than the stall and I don't want to keep her stalled 24/7 if not necessary!
First day I noticed it
Sun 8/16 before I cleaned it
Comparison between her back legs you can notice the swelling! Theres not much heat if any at all in her leg as of yesterday
After I cleaned it
