Lol I have seen that at my feed store, when I got my first horse, he had a bad cut and that's what I used on him, but I think it stung every time I put it on, so I bought some stuff called cut and heal. I'll go look around see what I can find. Thanks guys. So with that stuff I dotn have to wrap it?? Wont the flies get on it??
That happened to my mare. I honestly wouldn't call the vet for something as small as that.
Labre had a gash, really deep, exactly where yours is and I called the vet, an EMERGENCY call (which cost $$) had the her come out to look at Labre and fix her up, $450 later the vet told me that all I can do is wash it out twice a day with surgical crap, and wrap it. She still has a pretty scar from it.
The vet also told me to wrap it when I'm not home, and when I get home before I wash it out let it breathe for a 10 minutes, then wrap it up again.
EDIT: I don't think it's possible for her to get stitches, because of where the cut is located. The horse is always bending and moving that part.
I agree w/ smrobs, granulex and no wrapping. I think you should let it scab. I bet the hair grows back white... poor baby.
Pistol has a huge scar on his rear that should have been stitched... I think the window is only what? 5 hours? So if it happens in the night while you are sleeping or in the morning while you are working..... no stitchie stitchie...

I agree with this. Horse legs are next to possible to stitch. Not only are they constantly in motion but there is nothing but bone there, there is nothing to stitch with and the skin is really tight. I have never seen a leg injury stitched.
Proudsoft is another medication that will eat away the proud flesh. It is awesome, really nasty, but awesome.
