If I am dealing with a bad wound that I am trying to get to heal properly, yes, Vetericyn is worth every penny. For normal lumps, bumps, cuts and scratches, I just make sure it's cleaned when I first notice it, then leave it alone. I do put on extra fly spray if they're bothering it. I think that messing around and doctoring most simple wounds probably does more harm than good.

We sometimes use the Tri Care ointment, also. It seems to work well, but then all our horses have gotten ...so far....are just mild wounds.

We now use the vetericyn as our dumbell OTTB ran into a 16 ft metal gate and tore a nasty hole in his hip, just before the hip bone, about six weeks ago.

It was small, but rather deep....so we invested in the vetericyn because we were worried about infection due to the wound's depth and lack of bleeding.

He healed up nicely.

I like both the Tri Care and the Vetericyn....but I think the best wound care comes from the inside - a good diet and a healthy immune system are the best wound care!!

Another vote for Vetericyn. I also have rave reviews for Underwood's Horse Medicine and always have it on hand.

Thanks guys! I just want something general for wounds, that really premotes new hair growth. None is his wounds grow hair on their own. He had a 6 month old saddle sore when I bought him. 3 days of tri-care (that I barrowed from a friend) started growing the hair in. Now its at a bit of a stand-still and won't grow any more. So I need something a to encourage it.

I can't speak directly for this, but my barn owner SWEARS by vitamin E to get the hair back in. She says just get the gelatin capsules and poke a hole in the end and squeeze it out onto the scrape or whatever.

A boarder at our ex barn swears by some stuff called MTG for hair regrowth.

I never used it so I can't say how well it works....

Hmm interesting. I can understand why it would work, I know people who put it on THEIR face. Its pretty cheap too. I might give it a shot.

Does anyone like/use carona?

Another vote for Vetericyn and Tri Care. Once the wound is healed, MTG works for hair growth.

YEs, we've used Corona....our BO reccomended it when our OTTB got a neck wound on barbed wire at the barn he was staying at temporarily....




It healed up nicely and left no scarring and the hair grew back..... the BO swears by it....IT was a nasty wound, we just kept it clean by washing it daily with a Betadine wound wash and putting Corona ointment on it.

Recently my horse got bit very badly and even after a week it looks terrible so I put some triple antibiotic on it and then sprayed Alushield on it and it's doing better.

I've heard Vetericyn is amazing, it works on people and animals (so a boarder told me) She also told me it's $35 a pop. Is that true?

I need to expand my wound/health kit.
