With Grace good to hear the horse is getting better.
Here is a remady for cuts and the such like on horses and human alike.
From good food stores buy New Zealand Manuka Honey +20 the +20 is for the healing and antibotic rating it has. This stuff really works. On most wounds smare it on and bandage or cover is some way.
For around the eye or areas one can not bandage don't put the horse outside as this honey can attract bees and wasps.
I am not pulling any ones leg recommending this honey for wounds, it does work.
Normal domestic honey is useless as it has had the good stuff processed out of it. New Zealand Manuka Honey is not cheep but worth it and it tasts good on toast as well. It is exported around the world so should be available but may be in specialist stores.
I have read up on the benefits of manuka honey as well! It really does work wonders Grace, and it's all natural which is always a plus in my opinion. I think corona cream is probably like poly-sporin here in Canada. There is only one form of it that can be used on animals, ask your pharmacist they will point you in the right direction. Good luck =)
