Thank you for the pictures! Nothing came out of the abscesses that looked like yours, but there were definitely "pocket" abscesses. Vetericyn was said to work on staph and it looks a lot better since I started using it, so I'll give it another few days and take more pictures. He was recently moved to this pasture, and the trouble started soon after he arrived. I thought it was because of the cows next door or a fly bite.

I thought this was interesting. My guy had his trouble very shortly after we had to evacuate our facility due to flooding. He moved to a friend's place where he had to be in a pasture 24/7 rather than his usual stall at night/pasture in the day. The neighbor had a small herd of about 40 yearling cattle directly adjacent to the fence, so the flies were horrible. Of course, we never could come up with a definitive cause. (would be nice if horses would answer questions )

I think Sonny's got so bad because we were not treating with heavy enough cleaning solution and only 2x/day because of the worry about further skin irritation while we waited for labs to come back (poor timing with a weekend and living in nowhere North Dakota)

He did end up with permanent pink skin areas in his ears, but does not have other damage or sensitivity, or any problem handling his ears.

There are about 30 head of cattle next door and a third of them are calves! There are now little black flies that were not here a week ago...we have not had rain in a really long time. Yuck. And the gnats have gotten very bad too.

The bugs around here are horrible. My mini was bitten not sure by what but it was so itchy he ended up rubbing the skun off his legs. The bites caused hives and scabs. I scrubbed him down with benadine and warm water, of course he loved it. Dried him applied Panalog, rubbed him down with SWAT and evenually with reapplication he healed. The bugs are tremendous some I've never seen before and the poor animals reactions to their bites are painful. Keep the antibiotics on hand, I've learned that.
