Oh and ps I would have been so enraged if that happened at my barn, oh boy they would have heard it from me. That long of a time between it happening and treatment just leaves it open for infection. Ugh horses are trouble makers
The vet got there at 11 am and said it was way too old to have happened this morning during turnout.. he's in a stall at night, and my BO is positive it happened in his paddock, so it must have happened last night before he got put in his stall for the night. It was too old to stitch, so now it has to be wrapped. Grrrr. I am NOT impressed.
Im sorry you're having such bad luck!!!! I hope you and your horse will both be better soon. I thought id ad that while I was pregnant...I had a cyst surgically removed. Maybe you should get a second opinion about that? Just a suggestion. Anyway gl to ya!!!! Things will get better!!!!
Hmmmmm ya........... personally, that's pretty serious that they are not able to notice something so big on his leg. Ide talk to them about they're practices and why no one noticed it and maybe even keep an eye out for a new place. Just hope they're not slacking on anything else there.
Just thought, a little protection for Denny's legs, you could try some turnout socks :)
I'm not sure how much you can get them for over there, like knock off brands but I imagine they would be cheaper than vets bills Feel better :)
