Question Underwoods Treatment -- Consumption?!

Hey, I promise to make this short...

She eats it.


Like, tonight I went out and spray/baking powder'd it. This "vet tech" told and showed me to pack it in (powder), but apparently you're not supposed to [website]..? And yeah. I put her back in the pen and instantly, she starts licking the wound. The solution comes off and she stops and starts working her mouth... to start on it again. Is this safe? And what the hell am I to do now about treating this wound?

I'd be contacting the vet.

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

LOL! Not educationally helpful, but it is funny!

Anywho, the vet said to sprinkle cayenne on after applying the baking powder, see if she would stop eating it. "It [treatment] may slightly burn, or she could be itchy from the skin regrowing, so it makes sense that she's touching it.. Try cayenne powder afterwards, alot of horses don't like that taste... Randomly they do, so if there's still a problem, call me back and we'll figure out another treatment plan."
"Okay, so you won't be insulted if I call you tomorrow because she likes the taste??" LOL! Turns out, she's not a fan!

Lucky it worked! Yeah, I was thinking about my dog, who ate the 'guaranteed not to eat' expensive stuff from the vets to put over her bandage... after she ate the first bandage off! Then I went to the feedstore & the guy virtually guaranteed 'cribbox' for horses wouldn't be touched. She ate that off & threw up bits of bandage everywhere after that one. The only thing that worked was a large(she's a smallish dog) eliz. collar. Friend had another dog he'd tried all sorts on, except for a collar, who due to flea allergy, became compulsive about hacking his tail. Cayenne didn't work.... but Tabasco sauce did. Ouch! bet the treatment hurt more than the hacking, but it sure broke the habit!
