My stupid dog bit my Clydesdale on the mouth an hour ago; bleeding all over. I stopped the bleeding with my shirt and put wound spray on it, but would sugar and iodine work? Is it just plain store-bought sugar? Where do you get iodine? Would it work on my horse, because the bite was on his muzzle near his nose and mouth.....how often do you apply it? Thanks! I'm pissed off at the dog right now. He's usually not even allowed in the barn because that herding German Shepherd gets the best of him around horses and he feels the need to chase and bite....but alas, he snuck in under the gate while I was picking stalls.
My contribution: Most horses LOVE peaches. Not what you would think to feed a horse, but all of mine love it, and it's healthy for them.
