After checking it, and calling two vets and every number in my phone book.. my friend came out and we washed it clean and it appeared to be a huge puncture that just kept on going..
Vet came out, after 2 hours of nothing from my regular vet (this guy just called me, I haven't met him before but he floats the horses at the place I board at..)
And he stitched Sky up and it turns out, it was a puncture an inch and a half deep, inflamed to the size of a baseball, and oozing pus. It was so terrible :(
I feel like such a mess.. He is stuck on stall rest for 2 weeks, minimum.. the barn management over there sucks, and I haven't stopped crying. It all started when he was sedated and I was holding up his head, stroking it and crying.
I just needed to vent a little. He has so much medication right now.. 18 pills a day, 500mg of bute per day, wasn't allowed to eat for 2 hours.. and stuck in the one place he loathes most: a stall.
I feel like such a bad horse mom :(
